Santa Clarita Named “Top U.S. City To Live In”

Santa Clarita Named “Top U.S. City To Live In”

This past November, The Wall Street Journal rated our own Santa Clarita as one of the Top 20 U.S. Cities To Live In.” Of course, that comes to no surprise to the team at Valley Recovery Center. We chose our location very carefully, selecting an area that would be accommodating, nurturing and safe for every resident.


Located just north of busy Los Angeles, our vicinity offers a beautiful blend of mountains, parks and friendly upscale neighborhoods. We are also within walking distance of several amazing restaurants, movie theaters and shopping outlets; which, coincidentally, are some of the exact factors that put our city at the top of WSJ’s list.


And for the record, this list was not something that the Journal took lightly. Using material from the U.S. Census Bureau, WSJ ranked a total of 550 cities across the United States (each with populations of 65,000 or more). Of those, our own Santa Clarita came in at #20; making it the ONLY California city to reach the Top 30. Factors that went into the study included safety, entertainment, education and economics (elements we searched for as well when selecting a Valley Recovery Center location).


We couldn’t be more proud of our city and happily do our part to boost the local economy, with continued employment opportunities and support for local Santa Clarita businesses. If you’d like to learn more about our area and what makes it so special, we recommend visiting the official city website. It’s a fantastic resource and will give you a taste of life in our home town.
