Glendale, Eager for
Fame and Fortune

Glendale is one of the Valley's most thriving communities. It is said that there are more millionaires living in this city than any other community in the State of Arizona. Most people have a hard time believing this trivia. Most people use to consider this City the quiet giant going unnoticed. Not anymore.

Local celebrities from there are John F. Long, a home builder and developer; Evan Mecham a Pontiac dealer,(former Governer) and of course our favorite painted face, Mr. Alice Cooper.


Glendale has become the sports center of the Valley of the Sun. Westgate is the commercial venu where the Cardinals are the home team. In 2008 the University of Phoenix Stadium Hosted the Superbowl between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. This stadium also Hosts the Fiesta Bowl every year. The city leadership do not like the competing name (Phoenix) on the Stadium. But money talks especially when it comes to advertizing!

Tempe Arizona lost some of it sports appeal to this fame and fortune hunter of a city. Some call Glendale the "Antique Capital of Arizona" as well. Many other Arizona communities would agrue about this indulgence.

A sister structure known as The arena is home to the NHL Coyotes and the Sting a Lacross league.
