Historic Downtown Glendale has been named by USA Today & Sunset Magazine as one of the country’s ten best places for shopping. Historic Downtown Glendale is actually two neighborhoods – Historic Catlin Court with its white picket fences and mature shade trees welcoming visitors to the bungalows-turned-specialty shops, Old Towne boasting brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights leading the way to the famous antique stores and ethnic eateries. The neighborhoods span 10 square blocks which can easily be strolled in an afternoon. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave. The parking structure features 600 spaces.
