I enjoy the small town feel. But I do wish there were more attractions and things to do. The variety of restaurants are very limited, and there are no places to really go as an adult outside of bars and restaurants. Most everyone is friendly and outgoing which is a great thing! I do wish the school systems were a bit more on top of things and worked to get the best benefit for each individual (staff and student). If you shop the local stores everyone is very knowledgeable and welcoming. It is a great way to purchase local foods and other items while supporting people right in your own town!

I love the monumental buildings and the beautiful parks. The diversity of our town shows that all kinds of people are welcomed. I do wish that our roads and side walks could be fixed. As a driver, the roads are not well maintained. As a active walker in the community, the sidewalks are not maintained well all year long. In the winters, they don't clear the sidewalks. Which makes it hard for people who need to walk to work. I've seen them walk in the roads, almost getting ran over and getting soaked by the slush. I wish our little historic town could be better taken care of, and people would see the true beauty it has.
Houses are affordable, but taxes are really high. If you're looking for something to do or want to go shopping, there isn't much to choose from. Especially on Sunday.

Claremont has a lot of potential, but needs to attract businesses, restaurants, and young to middle age families and professionals. There are way too many vacant storefronts going to waste.
