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.

I moved to Claremont about 5 years ago in 2013 from South Pasadena. We really enjoy the parks in the city (e.g., Wheeler Park) and having the Village so close by. Tons of coffee shops and restaurants to explore and the Colleges offer lots of lectures, concerts and events throughout the year to keep us engaged. It's a small town w/ a big global outlook, and that's just perfect when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle but remain engaged in the world we live in. Lots of activism of all types, religious, political and environmental, Claremont strives to make the world a better place. Great place in LA County to settle in and enjoy life.
Very safe, vibrant community. Many fun things to do and community events! The public school is also great here.
