Santa Clarita is way overrated.

Have you ever heard of the saying, "Keeping up with the Jones"? Well that explains Santa Clarita in a nutshell. This city is horrible. It's overcrowded, too expensive, hotter than hot in the summer, and the people that live here act like they are in Beverly Hills. There is a major rise in crime and Newhall area is like TJ. Most of the schools are good if you are looking simply at test scores and you don't mind that your child is surrounded by spoiled children that have little tolerance. Money and status is what drives the people of this community and to meet somebody that is genuinely friendly is rare. Seriously, it's like living in the Twilight Zone here and I can't wait to get out.

If by Twilight Zone, you mean the best schools in the county, streets that are repaved every 3rd year, new restaurants opening everywhere, paseos that criss-cross the entire city and 2 good colleges, then hell yeah.. you really have it bad... But compared to where else? If you are going to compare Santa Clarita to ANY other city in SoCal, get ready to be embarrassed. It is rated as one of the safest, most business friendly, motorcycle friendly, bike friendly, education friendly places in the COUNTRY. Hot? move to the ocean.. Oh wait, you can't because those homes cost over $5 million each. Tolerance? That's just a liberal nonsensical buzzword. Pull up to someone and ask them directions.. you'll get a reply 99 out of 100 times. Try that in L.A. and hope you don't get mugged.
