We drove through 3 times during the holiday. Most shops were "knick knack" type shops. Probably some antiques. Did not have time to walk through, but looked like on a nice day it would be interested for awhile.

Glendale Glitters is a nice event - great for children. After being away from Phoenix for 22 years (living in Europe) and returning to the Phoenix metro area, the historical district was a bit disappointing. Several shops, mostly closed, full of kitchy gifts. It is probably me - I don't do "kitch." I give Glendale credit for trying, maybe we... More

It's almost like going to Prescott without the drive. Some of you will know what I mean. There are antique shops, a wide variety of very good restaurants, and lots of other things to do. I highly recommend a visit. You'll find something new & different every time. The Christmas activities are especially nice

If you live in Glendale or close this is a worthwhile outing at Christmas. It did not measure up to the "glittering" advertising on television. Most of the shops are antique warehouses or crafti-items. The old houses turned into restaurants have possibilities in the future.

Glendale Glitters has been a holiday tradition since we moved to Arizona. The beautiful lights, the crafts, the children's performances, all has been a holiday experience. We always enjoyed the magnificent light displays and walking the historic area visiting all the shops and eating in one of the many great restaurants. This year the experience was ruined by all the... More

If you love antiques, this is the place to go. Lots of old time shops. Ice cream parlors, old time hamburgers. Loved it

Having lived in the area for 60+ years, sometimes I feel we take for granted the things of note right in our backyard. However, it is never so during the season between Thanksgiving and New Year's when a drive through the Glendale Historic District and Caitlin Court. We never miss it...It's beyond wondrous to drive down Glendale Ave., east of... More
