Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita is the third largest city in Los Angeles County, California, United States and the twenty-fourth largest city in the state of California. The 2012 population estimate of Santa Clarita with the recent annexation of surrounding unincorporated county areas is 201,341. The 2010 U.S. Census reported the city's population grew 16.7% from the year 2000 to 176,320 residents. It is located about 35 miles (56 km) northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and occupies most of the Santa Clarita Valley. It is a notable example of a U.S. edge city or boomburb. The FBI rates it as the sixth safest city in the United States with at least 100,000 inhabitants. Santa Clarita was ranked as number 18 of the top 100 places to live by Money magazine in 2006.

Santa Clarita was incorporated in 1987 as the union of several previously existing communities, including Canyon Country, Newhall, Saugus, and Valencia, all of which are the land of the former Rancho San Francisco. Its principal boundaries are the Golden State (I-5) and Antelope Valley (SR-14) freeways. Their merger in Newhall Pass at the city's southernmost point gives Santa Clarita a triangular appearance on the map.

Santa Clarita is usually associated with the Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park, though the park is located just outside city limits in unincorporated Los Angeles County, and the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), located in Valencia.
