Santa Clarita is a great place to raise a family. If you are single and looking to mingle it's probably not for you.
Santa Clarita was just voted the 2nd safest mid level city in the USA. Even though we were one of the first planned communities in America we have a new look feel and have lots of new construction in and around our unique neighborhoods. We have have lots of parks, community pools, high rated Ca. distinguished schools, activities for kids, great restaurants, and a strong sense of community. We have a no tolerance for graffiti law and a 10PM curfew for kids under 18 which helps keep our area safe and clean.
If you work in the LA area yes there will be traffic but nothing compared to the nightmare of the 101 fwy. You should take a drive out here and check us out. Make sure you see Valencia within Santa Clarita.
