Strangely, Santa Clarita is most recognized by and associated with the Six Flags Amusement Park, which sits just outside of the city limits and the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), which is actually in Valencia. That isn’t to say, however, that the bustling city doesn’t have equally as wonderful things that are all its own.
An old pioneer town with many historic sites, the City of Santa Clarita has plenty to offer thrill seekers and homeowners, artists and families alike. There’s the Canyon Theatre Guild, the Newhall Walking Tour, and the William S. Hart Park Museum for all your cultural-outing needs.
You could try hiking or biking as a way to see the sites too. With more than 70 miles of trails set aside in the area simply for recreational usage, you could be out all day! Additionally, one cannot forget the Placerita Canyon Natural Area: a 350-acre wildlife sanctuary near the Western end of the San Gabriel Mountains in the Santa Clarita Valley.
