<p>Although scenes of tumbleweeds and Wyatt Earp-style dust-ups spring to mind when you think of a place like Glendale, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that this city is more suburban oasis than a Wild West saloon town. Lush parks and tree-lined neighborhood streets make this a great place to enjoy the outdoors with children and pets, while the family-friendly ambience, great schools, and history of growth will convince you to settle in for the long haul.</p>

German Sensation

<p>Schnitzel with a side of homemade bratwurst does not sound like a typical Southwest meal, but in Glendale, these dishes are some of the holy grails of good eats. Head over to Haus Murphy's, a traditional German restaurant and brewery, to get a taste of classic Bavarian bites that transport you all the way to Europe. Enjoy the famed chicken schnitzel in the beer garden on a warm summer night, or stop by and order the must-try apple streusel for dessert on weekends and enjoy the musical stylings of the Haus Band, an accordion-and-tuba ensemble that add authenticity with their tunes and traditional costumes.</p>

Ample Antiquing

<p>Named by Sunset Magazine and local newspapers as "Arizona's Antique Capital," Glendale is known for being fabulously saturated with vintage shops. If your decorating style favors heirlooms, head to downtown West Glendale Avenue to get your fix. There are dozens of stops to make here, but A Mad Hatter's Antiques should be your first. This 20,000-square-foot collectible emporium deserves an afternoon of browsing and specializes in jewelry, kitchenwares, dolls, and military memorabilia. If you get lost, the friendly staff will help you find your way to the front and can even assist you in sourcing hard-to-find items for any type of collection you enjoy.</p>

Down on the Farm

<p>Upon moving to Glendale, you will notice that family-friendly activities are lifted to a delightful new level and are often combined a chance to enjoy the area's plentiful sunshine. One of the best ways to take advantage of this, and get some grocery shopping in, is to visit Tolmachoff Farms, a four-generation operation that has provided fresh produce to Glendale for years. Visit the farmstand to gather up necessities, or, during summer, wander around the acreage and pick your own bushels of tomatoes, watermelons, bell peppers, and more. There is even a small petting zoo where your kids can visit with resident ponies.</p>
