The City is centrally located, just 30 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles. The City boasts year-round fun, abundant sunshine, a unique blend of upscale sophistication and small-town charm, historic elements, destination dining, signature shopping, outdoor adventure, and a variety of world-class events, scenic drives and attractions. These characteristics and more make Santa Clarita the ultimate Southern California lifestyle with endless opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the weather while biking, running, hiking and swimming.
