Santa Clarita is nice, but it is way over crouded, far to many people, to many cars and not enough streets, very boring place to live, the teens have nothing to do, they get into the drug scene because they are bored. This place has grown far to much and they just keep building h ...Read

Santa Clarita is truly for everyone as you will find just about everything from Theme Parks to classy family restaurants. Santa Clarita City has a wonderful main boulevard referred to as My New Main Street which offers stupendous shopping and a small town feel. I truly enjoyed my visit to the Westfield Valencia Towne Center which provided some upscale shopping in a wonderful environment with hundreds of retailers. I was most delighted by the small town family feel and sense of security throughout Santa Clarita, including the beautiful green grass and flowers along the side of every road. The city of Santa Clarita looks like something out of the movie Pleasantville and it is a wonderful place to visit alone or with the family!
Santa Clarita is the third largest city in Los Angeles County and it has grown rapidly in recent years. This has mostly been spurred by the physical growth of the city, but also by an influx of new residents from the rest of Los Angeles County and the United States. It is certainly a developing community with an increasingly interesting culture.
Santa Clarita’s local economy is most based on the service and entertainment industries, along with much of Los Angeles County. There is also a significant number of research jobs. Some of the biggest employers are Six Flags, Boston Scientific, Quest Diagnostics and Princess Cruises. Workers from many different fields will be able to find success here.
For those who would like to relocate or start a family, Santa Clarita has one of the best public school systems in the state of California. It is also home to the Master’s University and the California Institute of Arts, both of which are excellent higher learning institutions. The city also features over 30 parks, which are great for outdoor recreation with family or alone. If shopping is more of your interest, there are plenty of options at The Plaza at Golden Valley or River Oaks Shopping Center. There is certainly something for everyone, regardless of hobbies and interests.
Public transportation is extensive in Santa Clarita and, considering the heavy traffic in this part of the state, many people choose to use it. The system consists of busing as well as some train lines, which connect Santa Clarita to downtown Los Angeles and the other main suburbs. If you are alright with traffic at most times of the day, then a car would be fine.
The cost of living in Santa Clarita is very high, along with the rest of Los Angeles County. However, it is lower than many neighboring cities and the average rent is just a little over $2,000 per month. This high cost is made a bit easier by the high minimum wage in the city (compared to cities of similar size), but it would still be best to have either a high paying job or lots of savings to help with the costs. Groceries and other essentials are about average, thanks to the number of supermarkets in the area. Overall, many people manage to live rather comfortably here.
Santa Clarita is a beautiful city with wonderful warm weather. The area and its economy will only continue to grow into the future and if you decide to make this place your new home, you will likely be welcomed with open arms and transition quickly. This city could easily become a new paradise for you and your family.
