For me, that appeal of Burbank is that it has two distinct areas, it's downtown area and it's residential area with neighborhoods nestled on the slopes and foothills of the Verdugo Mountains.  There are also properties located in flat lands at the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley.  Burbank is know as the "Media Capital of the World," with many media and entertainment companies headquartered or have production facilities in Burbank such as KCET, Warner Bros, Warner Music, NBC Universal, Walt Disney, Cartoon Network, Viacom, Nickelodeon and PBS.  It has become famous for The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno and of course the famous and historic Johnny Carson Show which is filmed in Burbank.  One of my co-workers in fact used to get us tickets to the Jay Leno Show in Burbank.

Other attractions include the city's mall, Burbank Town Center, Burbank Philharmonic Orchestra, Los Angeles Equestrian Center, the Starlight Bowl, Downtown Burbank Mall, and "Burbank Village".  Warner Brothers has a tour which is similar to the one at Universal Studios.

One of the more popular neighborhoods in Burbank is the Rancho Equestrian District which is near Griffith Park.  Griffith Park offer hundreds of acres of open space for hiking and enjoying nature as well as the old trains.  The Walt Disney Studios (pictured left) in Burbank can be easily identified by the replica of the Empire State Building.  Shopping is fun at the Empire Center, Ikea and the Burbank Town Center.
