Glendale Overview

Glendale (population 255,000) is one of the major residential cities that border Phoenix to form the Phoenix Metropolitan Area (or simply "The Valley of the Sun").

People may know Glendale primarily as the home of the Arizona Cardinals, which play at University of Phoenix Stadium. Camelback Ranch is also owned and operated by the city of Glendale and serves as the spring training homes of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. The stadium holds 13,000 people.

Glendale also includes Luke Air Force Base (home of the 56th Fighter Wing), ASU West Campus, and Midwestern University Glendale Campus.

Locally, the city is well known for "Glendale Glitters," a Christmastime display of 1.5 million LED lights that illuminate sixteen blocks of Historic Downtown Glendale, making it the largest free holiday light display in Arizona.
