"A Great Local City"
As great of a city Glendale is, it is under the radar, as most out of L.A. and southern California don't know much about it. It remains a nice, big local favorite, as the 3rd largest city of L.A. county (only the city of L.A. and Long beach are more populated). Just like these other major cities, G-Town has diverse and ethnic communities which means a wide variety of cultural spots, restaurants, bakeries and shops.
