Destination guide

Delight in the natural landscape of Glendale

Enjoy the entertainment and other features of Glendale. Renowned for its shopping, restaurants and wildlife, this city welcomes all visitors.

Many of our vacation rentals offer full kitchens, spacious living quarters and sometimes even a hot tub—perfect for a relaxing getaway.

Things to do

From shopping to star seeking in Glendale

If you come touting the credit cards and hoping for some of Cali's top shopping, then it's the Glendale Galleria and Americana at Brand centers where you'll need to mark on the map – both have high fashion, local art boutiques, and sprawling foot courts to boot. Family visitors might want to wow the kids with exhibits of mountain gorillas and Sumatran tigers in the Los Angeles Zoo, while the stars of the Hollywood Walk of Fame just around the corner are of a more human sort. Hikes to the Hollywood Sign are also possible, and so are tours of the iconic Dodger Stadium.


Shop up a storm in Glendale

You certainly won't have to venture far from the door of those Glendale vacation rentals to find some of LA's best shopping. There are loads of open-air malls and farmers' markets in this section of the big city, making it a perfect spot to come for some retail therapy. Taking in the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the iconic studios of the city of stars should also be top of the list – naturally. And when you want to escape, just cruise up the palm-peppered avenues to the mountains, where trekking and horse riding await.


Sunny sightseeing in Glendale

While there's hardly a day given over to rain in these parts, it's still worth ensuring you have clear skies and sun for those sightseeing tours of the Hollywood strips, hikes to the Hollywood Sign, and meetings with the local mammals of the LA Zoo. The best way to do that is to book your Glendale vacation rentals in the spring or fall, when the temperatures sit in the pleasant high 60s and low 70s. That means searching for places to stay in the months of May, September or October.

Natural features

Glendale sits right by the mountains

The ridges of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument tower high over the blocks of downtown Glendale, providing a backdrop of sinewy peaks and chaparral-dressed valleys. The first port of call in that great reserve is the Deukmejian Wilderness Park, which has gushing waterfalls and dense swathes of spruce woodland. Venture even further north and you'll eventually join the Pacific Crest Trail, and soon find yourself weaving through the boulder-speckled tundra to the top of Mount Gleason – look out for the black bears and wild deer.
