Fall is almost upon us, as you can tell by the slightly less hot weather and slightly shorter days… But it’s not too late in the season to enjoy all sorts of fun outdoor Santa Clarita activities with your kids.
Here are my top 5 picks for Family Fun in Santa Clarita this weekend:
Beating the heat and having fun is super easy, just head over to Hurricane Harbor!
I took my kids recently on one of the hottest days of the summer, and it was still a totally amazing experience. There are plenty of ways to keep cool in the park besides just hitting the slides, like the water feature sections, misting stations, and the occasional overhead splash from an enthusiastic slider. And, of course, the rides are splashy fun for all ages. They are open daily through the end of the month, then weekends only in September, so make sure you go for it and enjoy the coolest of water parks. Visit their website for hours and ticket prices.
