Glendale is the fourth largest city in Arizona, nestled in the northwestern quadrant of the Phoenix Metro area. Over the years, Glendale has transitioned from anonymous Phoenix suburb to thriving mini-metropolis, home to professional sports teams and one of the city's best antique-shopping districts. Old Town Glendale is home to the Caitlin Court Shopping District, featuring dozens of specialty shops, cafes, restaurants, and antique stores. On the western edge of Glendale, the Westgate City Center is a thriving mixed-used urban development featuring shops, restaurants, a movie theatre, University of Phoenix Stadium (home of the Arizona Cardinals), and Jobing.com arena (home of the Phoenix Coyotes). Whether you come to stroll Glendale's charming historic downtown, or get a taste of the city's enormous growth in recent years, this Phoenix neighborhood more than stands on its own.
