Burbank CA review - 2/15/2012
Burbank is a nice city with a focus on the entertainment industry. The city benefits from southern California's mild climate with no snow, moderate temps in the winter and occasional hot but dry days in late summer.

Burbank features its own police and fire departments separate and distinct from the rest of the Los Angeles area. These are a real plus because the city services are very responsive to its citizens.  Read More

A Great Place to Raise a Family - 2/25/2010
Burbank is a city with a small town feel and all the conveniences of a big city. The schools are good, crime is low, gangs are non-existant, and shopping is pretty good too! the cost of living is somewhat high, but it is mostly middle class with a focus on families and community.

Burbank borders with Los Angeles, so access is easy if you can handle the traffic, but Burbank has it's own airport so you don't have to if you don't want to. The city has two large community pools and the beach is an hour away.

Overall, Burbank is a great place to live, especially if you wan to raise a Read More

So Sad - 8/5/2009
I have lived in Burbank most of my life.It is not as bad as some of the surrounding cities,but most certainly has changed.
The housing is not much better,houses are old and still too expensive to live.
The crime has really gone up,and you really have to watch how you drive in this town,because they drive like maniacs.
My children and I are no longer happy here,hopefully someday soon get out of this Read More

Love it! - 5/1/2008
I've lived in Burbank Ca for almost 15 years. I used to live in the Sherman Oaks area. I love it here! It's as crowded or as stretched out as the rest of the San Fernando Valley, it has a small town feel and while it has been getting more crowded than when I originally moved in, it's a much better experience, especially if you have kids. My neighborhood is very friendly and I'm within walking distance to many amenities.

If you are looking for a true small town, this won't be for you, but if you want the small town feel within the confines of a bigger urban environment, this is a great town. The only downside is the air quality, due to the fact that we have two freeways that traverse the town. But the many parks, proximity to biking, hiking trails and Griffith Park are Read More

Burbank - Small Town feel in Large Metropolis - 4/27/2008
One reviewer commented that they could not afford to buy a house in Burbank. That's probably true, esp. with the rise in prices in the last 4 years. The cost of our house area has risen 200K in 4 years. That is down from the 300K rise a year and a half ago, (so down 100K value in last 1.5 years.) Insane. The houses here are post-WWII, so they are small 3 bedrooms of about 1000 sq ft each. Lots avg about 6000 sq ft. TO buy, you need two incomes and help from family, or plan to rent out some to other people to help cover the mortgage. Houses generally rent for about 2100-2500, which covers mortgages plus taxes.

The city has a small town feel, and small government, so things get done. If you want to open a business, you call them and they answer the phone (yes live person!) right away. If you go down there, the business license office has no line, and people help you right away. The police and school district are separate from LA. The police are responsive. The schools are Read More
