SOME QUICK NOTES
A few lines about Burbank a city located in Los Angeles County. The US Census Bureau estimated in 2015 that the population of Burbank was over 15,000. Founded in 1887 and Incorporated in 1911. Considered by some to be the “Media Capital of the World” Burbank real estate is sought after by those working in “The Industry” because of the proximity to Warner Brothers Studios, NBC, Walt Disney Studios and more.
Burbank is located in The San Fernando Valley about 12 miles north of downtown Los Angeles and has two distinct sections; the downtown and civic center is nestled on the slopes and foothills of the Verdugo Mountains, and other areas located in flats of the San Fernando Valley’s eastern end.
There is always lots to do in there. You can spend a night with the Burbank Philharmonic Orchestra, take the family bowling at the Starlight Bowl, enjoy some fine dining at any one of the many area restaurants or (my Favorite) a trail ride around the Los Angeles Equestrian Center and dinner at Viva Cantina.
