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!
Review Claremont
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!"
I just moved here and I am liking it. There is nothing that I would change! It is safe, quiet, and calm. It is a family friendly place, close enough to downtown LA but also far enough to avoid all of the hustle and bustle.
