Claremont is a great city! The people are nice and very eco friendly. There are a lot of vegans and liberals. The down town area called "The Village" is a great place to go on a Friday night to thang out with some friends for drinks or food. The High School and Elementary Schools are great, but the middle school is questionable. Its expensive, but nice.

I love the city of Claremont it has many fine representations of various architectural periods, particularly Victorian, neo-Classical Revival, Craftsman, and Spanish Colonial Revival. It's diverse community makes is an amazing place to live. Claremont is a small college town with so much to offer. Much of what Claremont is today is the direct result of actions taken by the community's founders more than 100 years ago. Trees planted at the turn of the century now compete with nearby mountain peaks for dominance of the local skyline. The Claremont Colleges have become some of the nation's most highly respected educational and cultural institutions.
I’ve lived in Claremont for 21 years and it’s a great city with a lot to do. I’ll never move. There are old and new shops in the village, lots of markets and a cool farmers market every Sunday. We also have tons of walking and mountain hiking trails. But we moved here primarily for the schools. They truly are the best around!
