Claremont is a very nice area to live in. As a college student I fell very safe. It is a great location for attending either of the surrounding colleges nearby due to the fast commute. The town has a nice atmosphere to it, and it is very cute. There are plenty of great shopping centers to go to. I live in a very convent location to two Starbucks, Target and animal hospitals. There are plenty of great restaurants to eat at too! The atmosphere of the town is very peaceful and quiet. The people are very friendly and neighborly. Out of all the towns in the surrounding area, Claremont is the best one I have lived in since moving to the county in 2014.

Claremont is a wonderful city with a beautiful landscape. It is home to the some of the country's most prestigious colleges. The school district is excellent and they strive to make their student's succeed. Claremont also houses many local "hole in the wall" businesses where you can find the most unique handmade gifts for any occasion, most of which can be found in the local Claremont Village where anyone is free to browse through the shops and take in the scenery. The Claremont Village is the epitome of the city and one can grasp a true sense of the community of this city by taking a stroll through the village on any given Sunday where many vendors delight the community in the weekly Farmer's Market. In conclusion Claremont is a gem of a city, with breathtaking scenery and a friendly face at every corner.
Claremont is a beautiful and warming town to live in. The village has so many shops and wonderful places to eat. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, willing to lend a hand when needed. the view of the mountains, the hiking trails and the biking trails are a must thing to do when visiting. There is always something to do, never a dull moment!
