Burbank is located approximately twelve miles northeast from downtown Los Angeles in the eastern part of the San Fernando Valley. As of 2004, the city had a population of 105,400 residents. Billed as the "Media Capital of the World," Burbank is the headquarters for many media and entertainment companies, including the Walt Disney Company, NBC and Warner Brothers. Visitors are welcome to tour these facilities and see what goes on "behind the scenes." Built on aviation and moviemaking, the motion picture industry first moved to the city of Burbank in the 1920s. First National Pictures bought a 78-acre site on Olive Avenue near Dark Canyon and the company was soon taken over by a company founded by four brothers by the name of Warner. Motion picture history was made on October 23, 1927, when Warner Brothers released the first ever all-talking movie called "The Jazz Singer." Other companies followed and today Burbank is a prominent media and entertainment city that prides itself on a high quality of life. Burbank offers world class shopping and dining, including its Town Center, which is home to a variety of shops, megastores and movies. The city also offers 22 parks with approximately 2200 acres with swimming pools, tennis courts, ballfields, an outdoor concert amphitheater, golf course and more.

Burbank Weather & Climate

Southern California enjoys a mild year round climate that is classified as Mediterranean. There are two distinct seasonal changes, categorized by the amount of rainfall received - a dry summer and wet winter with modest variation in temperature. In the dry season, a Pacific high-pressure system dominates the weather pattern creating warm and very dry air and a thick marine layer that typically advances inland during the night and burns off to hazy sunshine by midday. Surface pollutants trapped under the marine layer, or fog, create L.A.'s infamous "smog." In winter, the high system is no longer dominant and storms fed by subtropical moisture bring lots of rain into southern California during the months of November through March. Afternoon sea breezes of 10 to 15 mph are common. Strong offshore winds, known as "Santa Anas," though not uncommon, rarely cause damage.
