Burbank has been a household name since the 1960s. Everyone who watched television knew that The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In were filmed in “Beautiful Downtown Burbank.” Indeed, people attracted to LA by the romance of Hollywood may actually find it in Burbank. Also nicknamed the “Media Capital of the World,” Burbank is just a few short miles north of Hollywood and home to production facilities run by Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Insomniac Games, among others.
Sprawled across flatlands and foothills, Burbank is also home to its own thriving downtown and a bustling municipal airport named after Bob Hope, both serving a bedroom community of about 100,000 residents. Effortlessly blending the urban with the suburban, residents can enjoy a night on the town—coffee, dining, nightlife—without the schlep into Los Angeles.
After a date night, they can retreat back to quaint neighborhoods of homes that are affordable by the surrounding standards, with median list prices south of $900,000 and north of $600 per square foot. There’s no uniform resident profile in Burbank—different subsections cater to different demographics. Burbank includes affordable, starter, and infill housing options as well as opulent mansions—all within a few short miles of each other on the eastern edge of the San Fernando Valley.
Young professionals, especially those with children, are attracted to Burbank for the excellent location, amenities, schools, and safety. Burbank is a dream-come-true for fans of outdoor recreation, sporting over two dozen parks including Johnny Carson Park and Brace Canyon Park. Downtown, patrons can shop at the Burbank Farmer’s Market or grab lunch at the original Bob’s Big Boy before taking in a leisurely day of retail therapy at Magnolia Park, a funky shopping strip with a bohemian vibe.
There’s something for everyone in Burbank, which is why its high reputation among small towns and exurbs is still well deserved.
