Could you see yourself living in the small-town atmosphere of Burbank? Located at the foot of the Verdugo Mountains and the eastern edge of the San Fernando Valley, Burbank is a quaint town with a mild climate. It’s been named the Entertainment Capital of the world and is home to many large entertainment companies such as Warner Bros, Walt Disney and Nickelodeon.
With the influence of these large studios, much of the area reflects the entertainment scene. But, it’s possible to take a break from the hype of modern film with the 50’s-style diners, cafes and restaurants. Though Burbank doesn’t have as progressive of a culinary scene as other districts in San Fernando Valley, there is plenty of flavor to keep your tastebuds satisfied.
What is it Like to Live in Burbank?
Burbank has two distinct areas: the downtown/foothill section and the flatland section. It’s just 12 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles with a population of 103,340. The area is family friendly, with bike lanes and pedestrian paths that are ideal for bikers, walkers, runners and joggers.
Residents love the cool downtown area, mega shopping malls and theaters. Many of the homes are one level, and the streets look like a picture out of a storybook. With neatly trimmed lawns, quiet streets and brick bungalows, it’s easy to live out the American Dream in one of Burbank’s neighborhoods.
Unlike many other neighborhoods in San Fernando Valley that are served by the LAUSD, Burbank is served by the Burbank Unified School District. The public and private K-12 schools routinely score higher than average, and three schools in the district have received gold, silver and bronze medals from U.S. News Best High Schools rankings.
