Top 10 Best Glendale Ca Neighborhoods
Here are the Ten Best Glendale Ca neighborhoods and Hidden Gems as selected by the natives who live here! Census data, crime reports, and standardized school scores are soulless measuring sticks that do little to predict your lifestyle should you chose to live here. Also, what’s with the idea of choosing a “Number One” neighborhood? That’s ridiculous because a person who loves Adams Hill might really hate a luxury condo at the Americana on Brand.
Instead – here are the Ten Best (and most requested) neighborhoods in Glendale and the reasons the natives love living there!!
1. Downtown Glendale
This isn’t your grandparent’s downtown Glendale. Take a trolly ride at the Americana or watch the Bellagio-style water fountain show. If you love to go, see, and do, this is the best Glendale CA neighborhood for you.
Residents love the “walk anywhere” lifestyle. If you are into the concierge lifestyle, the condos at the Americana at Brand are a world-class luxury.
2. Adams Hill
Natives love the hills because they get privacy and spectacular views. There are cool things to do here, too. This is the best Glendale Ca neighborhood for the hip and urban people.
If you love the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhoods like Eagle Rock and Mt. Washington you’re going to love Adams Hill!
Verdugo Woodlands is one of the most popular neighborhoods for Glendale home buyers. They love the top schools, access to the skate park at Verdugo Park, or historic Stengel Fields. If you love a tight-knit community where everyone seems to be connected this is the best Glendale Ca neighborhood for you
EVERYONE loves Montrose. It has a small walkable lifestyle hard to get anywhere in urban Los Angeles. A popular Farmer’s Market, great restaurants and boutiques as well as some of the best schools in the area draw home buyers from all over.
Northwest Glendale is popular with anyone looking for easy access to the studios and Westside of LA. It is also an in-demand area that loves gracious, tree-lined streets, parks and lovely character homes.
Architecture lovers prize the historic Spanish, English Tudor, and even a few Craftsman homes in historic Rossmoyne. Driving through the Rossmoyne is almost like driving through a major motion picture – and, in fact, many films are set in this neighborhood!
The Canyons lifestyle is all about being surrounded by nature-filled hillsides and hearing the breeze rustle the leaves. If you long to live in the “country” but need to be close to civilization, the Canyons are the best Glendale Ca neighborhood for you.
It is also the best place for golf lovers!
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I’ve lost my mind or I don’t understand “cool”. La Crescenta IS cool, but not so much hipster cool as “I don’t need to show off to no one” cool. People who love great schools and living in “the mountains” will think this is the best Glendale Ca neighborhood.
Hey, wealthy people can be cool, right? Seriously, though, La Canada is the coolest, most understated wealthy enclave in all the land. La Canada is perfect for those who have wealth but do not want the crowded city environment.
Do you know how everyone wants to identify the next trendy neighborhood before everyone else? The best Glendale Ca neighborhoods are the ones about to be discovered. This is it, just remember you heard it from me!
