I love living in Burbank.
It's an amazing community which feels like it's disconnected from the 'outside' world. We have a strip - Riverside Drive - which offers everything from little boutiques, eateries, shopping centers, shoe stores and places where we can meet with one another without the hassle of being bombarded by a lot of people. Many celebrities live here but we all seem to live together as one without issue.
I would definitely recommend Burbank for families or for those living alone and starting afresh!

Burbank is a quiet and peaceful city with the same bustle as a big city with out the crazy crowds. In Downtown Burbank we have a great mall to satisfy any shopping needs with all the major stores. We also have 3 AMC movie theaters all within walking distance of each other. In 2017 the largest IKEA in the WORLD will also be opening up in burnank as well as a COSTCO and a metro train that can take you all the way to downtown LA. The public schools are amazing with great programs and amazing faculty that actually care about your students success. As for safety, I've lived in Burbank for 12 years now and I feel completely safe walking down the streets at night and our officers are always around patrolling guaranteeing our safety leaving us with the peace of mind we all crave from our city. Burbank is beautiful. We have many hiking trails and a nature center as well as a restaurant, a golf course and stadium in the mountains. Burbank is the best place to live!

I really enjoy living in Burbank because I believe it to be a family oriented community. I believe this to be so because although we are very close to LA, it seems like we are a little neighborhood in the middle of Colorado. The neigbors are all friendly, we look after each other, and have established a good relationship with our police department. One think i would like to see change or improve is our shopping mall. Our mall does not have big name vender's like H&M, Nordstrom, Apple Store, etc. Overall Burbank is a wonderful safe neigborhood.
