The National Parks
If you both love the great outdoors and want an engagement with a beautiful vista, then there are several National Parks in the Santa Clarita area that are perfect.

You could propose on the stepping stones across the falls with the rushing water in the background. The Placerita Canyon Natural Area is also beautiful (19152 Placerita Canyon Rd, Newhall, CA 91321) and has plenty of spots where you can pop the question. There are shaded oak groves and streams lined with sycamore and oak trees, your engagement will certainly be at one with nature.
Rooftop restaurants and bars
If you want to propose with an amazing view of Santa Clarita, there are some wonderful rooftop restaurants where you can enjoy a meal together before you get down on one knee with an engagement ring. A solitaire setting is the most popular ring choice for an engagement, with a classic diamond, or you might want to choose something more intricate, like a pavé setting. An engagement ring is something that will be worn for the rest of your life, so it is important that it’s right. Reyes Winery on Main (24329 Main Street, Santa Clarita 91321) has a beautiful rooftop terrace that is stunning at night. The menu, which includes sea scallops and ora king salmon, is wonderfully indulgent – perfect for a proposal. Alchemy (24501 Town Center Dr Suite 101, CA 91355) is another great place with rooftop views. You can celebrate your engagement with a cocktail and share a piece of the cheesecake of the day.
If you and your partner love a good rush of adrenaline, then you could propose at the top of one of the thrilling rollercoasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Saying “yes” at the top of Full Throttle, before the plunge downwards could make both of your hearts leap. Or you could choose Wonder Woman™ Flight Of Courage, the longest single-rail rollercoaster in the world. It will certainly be an exciting marriage proposal!
Asking someone to marry you is a personal and special milestone. There are no shortage of beautiful places in Santa Clarita where you can pop the question and have an engagement to remember forever.
