Burbank is refreshingly sleepy in comparison to its southern neighbor, Los Angeles. That's the reason LA locals and visitors who prefer to stay out of Los Angeles' hustle and bustle find Burbank a divine option. There's shopping, at Burbank Town Center, great golf at DeBell Golf Course, and a number of unique museums and attractions, including The Gordon Howard Museum, Burbank Aviation Museum, and Pickwick Gardens.
Playhouses, like the Colony Theatre, historic tours, and Starlight Bowl, an outdoor amphitheater, are all testaments to Burbank's cultural appeal, while the region's glitz, glam, and movie-making magic are also alive and well at Warner Brothers Studio and The Walt Disney Company - just two entertainment goliaths headquartered in Burbank. Whether taking a picnic to Johnny Carson Park or hoping to catch a celebrity reading lines, Burbank is a favorite vacation spot for many.
