Burbank Overview

Burbank is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United States. As of 2007, the city had a population of 107,921.

Burbank is located in the eastern region of the San Fernando Valley, north of Downtown Los Angeles.

Billed as the "Media Capital of the World", many media and entertainment companies are headquartered or have significant production facilities in Burbank, including NBC Universal, The Walt Disney Company, and Warner Bros. Entertainment.

The town has come a long way from the days when it was ironically referred to as "Beautiful Downtown Burbank" on Laugh-In and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.

Burbank Town Center is a large shopping mall that opened in August 1991, located on Magnolia Boulevard with three levels of interior shopping anchored by Macy’s, Mervyn’s, Sears, and outdoor shopping anchored by Ikea, Loehmann’s, and Office Depot. Also, in the heart of all the shopping, downtown Burbank hosts the AMC Theaters - 30 screens which is a big hit.

Although commonly believed to be named for famous horticulturalist Luther Burbank who once lived in Santa Rosa, California, the city is actually named for David Burbank, a New Hampshire-born dentist and entrepreneur.

Most Angelinos prefer to fly into/out of Burbank airport (recently renamed Bob Hope Airport) due to its small size, lack of congestion and convenience.
