Referred to as “the Valley”, San Fernando Valley is an urbanized valley located in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Home to 1.76 million people, it lies north of the larger and more populous Los Angeles Basin. Largely a suburban haven, Burbank, Glendale, San Fernando, Calabasas, and Hidden Hills are all independent cities lying within the San Fernando Valley. All others are districts of the city of Los Angeles. The Valley offers many tourist attractions such as the Getty Center Museum, Six Flags Magic Mountain, the beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu, and The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Many of Hollywood’s top movie production company studios are located in Burbank such as Warner Brothers, NBC and Disney. Nightlife in the valley ranges from dive bars to long-established hotspots. Universal City and the City Walk provide a touristy, upscale atmosphere while towns like Glendale have a more local scene. Ventura Boulevard is home to a variety of bars suitable to almost any taste.
