Crime & Safety
Claremont is a nice town, it is very small & quaint. Also very quiet. There is a nice place in the center of Claremont called "The Village" you are able to enjoy many restaurants catering to every type of cuisine you're interested in & also a movie theater & other things to engage in entertainment!
It's a nice, small, quiet college town. We have the "Five Cs" (or the five Claremont Colleges) located sorta in the center of town. Below that, we have the Villiage, which is a pretty big conglomerate of a bunch of family-owned businesses (along with a couple chains) where you can get delicious food, watch a movie, buy a bike, etc. We also have two elementary schools, a middle school, and a great high school. Claremont is predominantly liberal, although (especially near the mountains) it has a more conservative shade. The informal motto of our town is "The City of Trees and PhDs!"
Claremont is a lovely little college town. It has a very nice, small downtown area that offers a wide range of shops and restaurants. The cost of living does seem a bit high as compared to other nearby cities, but with the Claremont Colleges nearby, that is understandable. Personally, this means that I simply cannot afford to eat or shop in the downtown village area very often as it gets quite expensive. I do enjoy Claremont because it offers lots of walkable streets and trails, and is very close to several hiking areas.
