Santa Clarita, California sits just north of Los Angeles and is home to outdoor adventures for everyone to enjoy. The city has a population of just under 200,000 residents and sits right in between Castaic Lake State Park and Angeles National Forest.
For the thrills and rides, head to Six Flags Magic Mountain and enjoy the nearly 50 rides in the park, as well as shows, games, and more. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is a great way to escape the heat with wave pools, lazy rivers, and dozens of waterslides. Visit Vasquez Rocks to hike or even climb the stunning rock formations.
Silent film fan? Visit the William S. Hart Museum, former home to the iconic silent film producer and director. Spend a day in Santa Clarita Central Park, learn something new at the Santa Clarita Historical Society, or stroll through the galleries at the California Institute of the Arts.

The best time to visit is from March to June or from September to December for the most moderate weather.
