Once one of the largest, most-visited malls in America, the Glendale Galleria was first opened in 1976 and remains popular today, despite the presence of the Americana at Brand, its glitzy neighbor across the street. Home to the second Apple Store ever opened in a U.S. mall, as well as the first three-story Target in America, there’s almost no retail merchandise in existence that you won’t find here.
Here you can find department stores such as Macys, JC Penny, and Bloomingdales, a branch of 90210 Pho (a popular L.A. chain for Vietnamese food) as well as a large international food court. The children’s play area on the upper level emphasizes healthy eating and a sense of adventure, and includes a large model plane.
