I love Claremont as a town overall. Being from a large city (Newark, NJ) and it adjacency to Manhattan, New York makes the adjustment to Claremont pretty difficult. However, the town is gorgeous in terms of its look (lots of trees). It is very family-oriented and has a lot of individuals with Ph.Ds (due to the Claremont Colleges). Great weather, lots of trails, and a bustling central downtown area provides the small-town feel that attracts many young college students and older individuals in the twilight of their respective careers. Everyone, in essence, says Claremont is an extremely nice town to live in.
