Glendale boasts a population of more than 240,000 and houses the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. The Fiesta Bowl plays in the city’s state-of-the-art University of Phoenix Stadium, which also hosted the Super Bowl twice.

The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers report for spring training in the city-owned Camelback Ranch stadium.

Glendale sports two regional shopping attractions – Arrowhead Towne Center to the north and Tanger Outlets within the Westgate Entertainment District – and the popular hunting, fishing and camping store Cabela’s. Tohono O’odham Nation’s Desert Diamond Casino, the first Indian gaming in the Northwest Valley is located a mile from the Westgate entertainment hub.

Although tourism remains a focal point to the city, it is also home to higher educational institutions, including Arizona State University’s West campus, Midwestern University and Glendale Community College.

In 2016, The Glendale Today merged with the Arrowhead Ranch Independent, established in 1995, delivering a combined circulation of 20,000 as the Glendale Independent.
