The City of Burbank is a bedroom community of Los Angeles, located on the eastern edge of the San Fernando Valley. Neighborhoods extend from the Valley floor to the slopes of the Verdugo Mountains. Interstate 5 (I-5) divides the city on a north-south axis; the eastern side containing the downtown and foothill areas and the western side encompassing the flatlands. Its western border is shared with North Hollywood.
Burbank’s twentieth century roots took hold in the aviation and entertainment industries. Burbank was home to the early aircraft manufacturing industry (Lockheed et al.) and notable aviation pioneers Howard Hughes and Amelia Earhart. The city was and is still home to several motion picture and television studios like Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Walk Disney, NBC and ABC Studios. Many of your favorite films and T.V. shows are filmed here.
Burbank comprises four key neighborhoods: Airport District; Downtown Burbank; Magnolia Park; and Media District.
The architectural style of homes in the area follows a traceable historical timeline. During Burbank’s initial phase of growth and development (1917-1945), Bungalow and Revival Style (Spanish Colonial, English Tudor, Dutch Colonial, and Queen Anne) homes were built. The postwar era (1946-1970) saw extensive suburbanization with the construction of many single-family Ranch and Craftsman style homes. If you look around, you might find an Oriental Craftsman home, too.
Downtown Burbank is small and charming with walkable tree-lined streets that could be visually compared to any small town in America. Here you can find mom and pop retail stores, cafes and restaurants alongside some national chain stores like Starbucks.
Burbank Town Center is a large shopping mall at the northern edge of the main drag, home to a large, multiplex theater. The 456,000-square foot Burbank IKEA store south of Downtown is the largest in the United States, drawing huge weekend crowds of furniture shoppers on weekends.
Do you enjoy fresh, California-grown produce? Be sure to check out the Burbank Certified Farmer’s Market which runs every Saturday from 8 am to 12:30 pm, rain or shine!
The outdoor venue, Starlight Bowl, is owned and operated City of Burbank Parks and Recreation Department. Locals love entertainment under the stars during the summer concert season, which kicks off each year with the 4th of July fireworks show. The stunning display draws rave reviews.
If you live in Burbank, you’ll love the convenience of Bob Hope Airport (BUR). It’s smaller and much less congested than the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Security lines are short, and traffic in and out is sparse, making dropoffs and pickups quick and easy. Locals only use LAX if they must, as might be the case for international travel.
Metrolink and Amtrak trains provide service right through the heart of Burbank, and the former can get you to Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) in a snap.
The biggest recreation area in Burbank is Wildwood Canyon Park, home to killer hiking trails and phenomenal panoramic views of the entire San Fernando Valley to the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. Steep trails make for a great glute workout. Great trails are also found in nearby Stough Canyon Park (and Nature Center).
Around town, you will find several smaller parks that provide baseball diamonds, tennis courts, soccer fields and so on.
