Financial Site Nerdwallet gives Santa Clarita good marks for best cities in Southern California.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again…Santa Clarita is a great place to live! Its diversity in housing choices, plenty of family-friendly things to do, great shopping, job opportunities and great schools are only a few of the many things that attract home buyers to this valley. Don’t forget its proximity to commuter access that can take you to the major Los Angeles area metropolitan communities, making it a great place to “get away from it all” after a hard day’s work.
BUT…Don’t just take our word for it! Several studies and polls in recent years have ranked Santa Clarita at or near the top in various categories for great places to live. The most recent study comes from well-known financial site NerdWallet, who ranked Santa Clarita 15th in best places for young families in Southern California.
