Things to do

Fun times in Santa Clarita

You’ll only be a little over an hour away from Disneyland Florida, Anaheim when you stay at a Santa Clarita vacation rental, but why travel that far when Santa Clarita has theme parks of its own? Six Flags Magic Mountain has towering rollercoasters and family attractions, including the cast of Loony Tunes. The neighboring Six Flags Hurricane Harbor waterpark has all the usual rides, slides, lazy river, and wave pool needed for a splashing day out. Or dial it back at bit at the Mountasia Family Fun Center, which has classic favorites like bumper boats, miniature golf, and old school gaming machines.


Go outdoors in Santa Clarita

You don’t have to go far from your Santa Clarita vacation rental to discover miles of hiking and biking trails to explore. Twenty minutes east, the distinctive sandstone rock formations of Vasquez Rocks jut stubbornly from the hillside – great for rock climbing – and creating a scenic backdrop to the hiking and equestrian trails around this Los Angeles County Park. Head back to town for post-hike dining and entertainment. On Thursday nights, the historic Main Street of Santa Clarita’s Old Town Newhall comes alive with block party celebrations and live entertainment.
