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
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.
Although there is a majority of wealthy Caucasian families, the colleges of Claremont bring much diversity of races, art, and culture to our town. Downtown Claremont is a very lively place to find unique shops, restaurants, and activities. I am proud that our town also focuses on environmental issues such as saving water and using solar energy (for example, the solar panels that were just installed at Claremont High School).
