Newhall is a community in the south of Santa Clarita
, which is a part of Los Angeles County to the north of the San Fernando Valley
region. It lies near other Santa Clarita districts like Saugus, but is otherwise surrounded by the wooded foothills and mountains of the San Gabriel and Santa Susana ranges. Such proximity to open, green spaces is obviously a perk to living in Newhall and the southern Santa Clarita area.
The other side to this coin: accessibility is not Newhall's strongest suit, especially when it comes to lighting out across the rest of LA County; commuting south to the Los Angeles Basin is possible, but not practical. Newhall has an old-town character with some lovely historic buildings and a strong community feel, including a vibrant farmer's market. The area also exhibits a smattering of solid, charming places to grab a bite to eat. Local throughways: Railroad Ave., Lyons Ave., Newhall Ave., and the 5 and 14 freeways.
