Living in Glendale, Arizona
I've lived in Glendale since 1993, and have watched it grow up around me. When first moved into this neighborhood, which is The Sahuaro Ranch neighborhood, there was the Main Glendale Library, the historic Sahuaro Ranch, Glendale Community College, and a few assorted neighborhoods, but not much more. It was so long ago that there was a stigma attached to any neighborhood that was on "the west side", but the new neighborhood of Arrowhead Ranch, which is just north of me, changed all of that. Instead of "westside", I considered my neighborhood "Arrowhead adjacent".
If you visit Glendale, by all means stop at the Starbucks, and get a sandwich at the Subway. But take the time to time-travel a bit. I recommend the Sahuaro Ranch. And watch for peacocks!
