If you live in Santa Clarita, chances are you have a few of these regularly photographed locations on your photo roll or tucked away in a scrapbook. But have you captured them all?
Our number one most photographed neighborhood? Bridgeport! With its classic architecture, pretty lake and swarms of ducks, it’s bound to inspire a few shots.
- Santa Clarita Sunset
There’s just something about Santa Clarita sunsets. The vibrant colors intermittent with fluffy or wispy clouds can tempt even the busiest to open their camera app.
- Golden Valley Open Space
You can really see where Golden Valley got its name – miles of gorgeous gilded grasses. Fun fact: Miley Cyrus’ Teen Vogue cover was shot in Golden Valley.
- Placerita Canyon Open Space
This canyon, lush with greenery and history, is a hiker’s paradise.
- Ironhorse Trailhead
This massive metal monument to the history of locomotives always catches the eye of the avid shutterbug.
- Old Town Newhall Library
One of the City’s newest buildings, Old Town Newhall Library is a jewel among the revitalized Old Town Newhall district, and certainly photogenic.
- Bike Trails
With 180 miles of trails to explore, it’s only natural that you would find a masterpiece in the bend of Chuck Pontius or South Fork.
- William S. Hart Mansion
With gorgeous Spanish architecture and Native American artifacts, William S. Hart’s mansion is a unique fixture in the Santa Clarita hills. Tip: On you way up, check out the herd of bison on the hill, originally donated by Walt Disney.
- Main Street
When we light up Main Street, there’s always a cluster of twinkly pictures that emerge! Be careful though… sometimes things can get romantic.
- Metrolink Stations
No matter where you live in the valley, you can somehow always hear the whistle of the train passing through. The historical rails and unique stations also seem to draw the eye of many a Santa Clarita photographer.
- Amgen Tour of California
For the last several years, a swarm of bicyclists have raced their way through Santa Clarita streets for international glory with the Amgen Tour of California. The vibrant colors and dynamic action lends to some cool pics!
- Ranch Life
One fixture of the Santa Clarita community from the time of Henry Mayo Newhall is the equestrian and ranch lifestyle of many residents. The charm and simplicity of rustic living is often captured by a clever camera lens.
