The City of Santa Clarita is one of the largest cities in Los Angeles County by both population and area, and indeed, makes the top-twenty lists for all of California in both of these categories as well. Santa Clarita is a quintessential commuter town, sitting just north of the San Fernando Valley
region of Los Angeles along the 5 and 14 freeways; these arteries connect to the 405, 118, and 210 freeways, by way of which one can access most of the rest of Los Angeles County and the San Gabriel Valley
with relative ease.
Santa Clarita also has an LA Metro Link station connecting it to Downtown LA
. The city abuts the western San Gabriel Mountains, positioning natural beauty and proximity to open, green spaces as significant perks to living in the area. Santa Clarita is considered a quiet, suburban, community-oriented place where you can raise a family and avoid some of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles itself.
