Glendale (Arizona)

Glendale is one of the largest suburbs in the metropolitan Phoenix area, and is rapidly growing as a dominant media/entertainment center in the Valley of the Sun.


The NFL's Arizona Cardinals play their home games in this city. They are considered to be the oldest NFL team still in existence, but have relocated twice in modern times, starting out as the Chicago Cardinals and being known as the St. Louis Cardinals before finally moving to Arizona. They also hold the record for most NFL losses of any team.

Get in

By plane

As a suburb of Phoenix, Glendale does not have its own major airport. Airplane owners may find it convenient to fly into Glendale Municipal Airport (located in the western portion of the city), but most people may find it prudent to fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the area's major airport.

By road

Glendale has the benefit of numerous freeways that travel through the Phoenix metro area.

Stay safe

The types of crime most common in the Phoenix area usually do not affect visitors or tourist locations. However, some sections of Glendale, especially the southern tier of the city bordering the Maryvale area of Phoenix, are somewhat dicey and should be avoided at night.
