Santa Clarita, the fourth largest city in Los Angeles County, blends its small-town charm with the sophisticated amenities and spirit of a larger urban center. Just 25 minutes north of Los Angeles, Santa Clarita offers the very best of Southern California - from thrilling theme parks, world-class sporting events and championship-style golf courses to a thriving arts scene, distinctive museums, historic points of interest and shopping and day spa opportunities. Santa Clarita is comprised of four communities: Newhall, Valencia, Saugus and Canyon Country and is located adjacent to Six Flags Magic Mountain & Hurricane Harbor on the west, and the Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park on the north. With more than 30 miles of off-street bike paths and trails, its no wonder that Santa Clarita was named "the best place to live in California" by CNN/Money magazine. Come see why Santa Clarita is the very best of California.
"It is an honor to host the AMGEN Tour of California for a second year," said City of Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar "This is truly one of the world's finest sporting events, from the caliber of riders and the picturesque course, to the visibility it brings to our great state."
