Westgate City Center-Phoenix Lifestyle

by Lavine Team on May 2, 2017

Here is a video of the Westgate City Center Entertainment District located in the City of Glendale which is in the west valley of the Greater Phoenix Real Estate area.

Many vacation home owners and locals alike desire to have their homes fairly close to professional sports facilities as well as to great shopping and dining. Westgate has all of the above.

Westgate City Center is the home of the NFL Arizona Cardinals who play football here at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Lavine Team has season tickets to the Cardinals games and enjoy hosting Canadian Tailgating Parties where they proudly fly various flags from the CFL teams as well as the Cardinals flag, Canadian & American flags. The annual Fiesta Bowl is also played here….this year’s classic featured Oregon Ducks vs Kansas State and was attended by 73000. There are also many other events that occur at the stadium including concerts, trade shows, Rib Festival and much more. The Superbowl has been played here in 2008 and will return in 2015.

Westgate is also home to the NHL Phoenix Coyotes. There is optimism for new ownership hopefully coming soon and particularly since the Coyotes have done so well making the playoffs for 3 years in a row and advancing all the way to within 1 game of a Stanley Cup appearance in 2012. With the NHL lockout ending and a short 48 game regular season, excitement is brewing for many. Youth hockey has been increasing in popularity in the Greater Phoenix valley for a few years now and us Canadians know that this is fundamental for the success of hockey in any given area.

There is a 20 screen movie theatre here, boutique shopping as well as many restaurants and pubs in Westgate that are especially busy during sporting events. They include Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, Yard House, Saddle Ranch, McFaddens Saloon, Kabuki Japanese, The Shout House dueling piano bar, Johnny Rockets, Calico Jacks, Hell’s Half Acre and more….something here for everyone!

At the heart of this development is a central square that features Las Vegas Bellagio-style fountains with light show, big screen broadcasts and soaring billboards like in Times Square. Night time is the best time to be here to experience the vibrancy. There is a seasonal motorcycle show-n-shine on Thursday evenings, outdoor beer gardens with live band when the Coyotes are in the playoffs and many other scheduled events.

The latest improvement to Westgate is the addition of  The Tanger Outlet Mall….an 80+ store mall in the NW corner of the site. Stores include Nike, Coach, Fossil, Banana Republic, Izod and many other popular outlets. The grand opening was on Nov 15th in time for Black Friday shopping. Prior to this location, you had to travel to the far north end of the valley to Anthem Outlet Mall or east of Sky Harbor airport to Arizona Mills which are both very nice malls also. This new outlet mall is very convenient for those in the west valley or central valley to get to and then there’s the added attraction of all the restaurants and the sporting events to boot.
