Burbank is a self-incorporated city in the east San Fernando Valley. It is home to many film and television studios as well as numerous post-production facilities (often called post houses).
The city is very unique in that during the daytime, it is a bustling city with lots of activity due to the enormous number of businesses in the area. And yet, after about 8:00pm each evening, it transforms into a quiet, suburbian neighborhood with people walking their dogs along the sidewalks. It’s a very quaint town as well in that there are a lot of mom and pop retail stores and restaurants. The old “Cheers” TV theme that says, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name,” holds very true for Burbank. When you go into an eatery that you frequent, the family that owns it knows your name and what you want to eat.
Some of the gems for dining in this town are the following:
Shopping is plentiful in Burbank with the Burbank Town Center Mall, situated in the middle of San Fernando Road’s shopping district. You can walk from the mall to the many shops that line the streets, and then see a movie at Burbank’s AMC 16 Theaters.
Magnolia Park is another very trendy area for shopping, anchored by Porto’s Bakery on the west, and Halloween Town to the east. The last Friday of each month, the stores stay open late as vendor food trucks line the sidewalks. There are multiple vintage and thrift clothes stores to keep you busy for hours. It’s a blast!
Just east of Burbank sits the City of Glendale. This is a hot spot for shopping. There is the Glendale Galleria and The Americana Malls. These are two of the best malls in the Los Angeles area.
Because of it’s self-incorporation with it’s own City Council, Police Department, and Fire Department, and Burbank Unified School System, the City of Burbank has some of the best city services in the nation.
Specifically, the Burbank Police Department is literally the fastest responding department I have ever experienced in my life. They are professional and very helpful, and they keep the community extremely safe because of their constant patrolling.
