    Outdoors at Claremont: Claremont prides itself on being called "The City of Trees". It is housed just south of the San Bernardino Mountains, and has created access to the beautiful nature of its hills and valleys through well kept hiking trails and camp sites. It is also home to the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens, which houses a wide variety of flowers, plants and wildlife. Claremont is also very near larger parks such as Bonelli Park, which provides camping and water activities. Even though Claremont is constantly making changes to develop the city, it never forgets to include aspects of nature, by continuing to plant trees and building additional biking and walking trails adjacent to newly developed housing complexes.

They also have partnerships with newly developed branches located in Claremont, which house other general practitioners, urgent care, and lab facilities. Casa Colina, a rehabilitation center, is also located just south of Claremont and can be used for any recovering patients or those who need long term care. There is a wide selection of quality dentists, optometrists and estheticians as well. In terms of Fitness, Claremont houses many private group exercise facilities, and is neighbored by new public gym's such as Retro Fitness and Gold's Gym.

    Crime & Safety at Claremont: Claremont, for years, has ranked among the safest cities in California and the United States. With such a small, close-knit community, everyone is looking out for each other. Growing up, I was always allowed to play outside in the street and walk to the park with my brother and sister. I can take bike rides and walk alone in my neighborhood, and run late night-errands if need be, all while feeling safe. Claremont has many schools that are located close together, so police are always watching for pedestrians and any cars that may be speeding. While the local newspaper publishes a police blotter weekly, it only includes minor, isolated incidences that are quickly resolved.

    Weather at Claremont: Claremont, being housed right between Los Angeles and San Bernardino County, experiences weather equal to any Southern California city. While not to close to the coast, it rarely gets windy, and there is little cloud cover. The weather is mild almost everyday of the year, not too dry and not too humid. At it's coldest temperature, it can get in the high forties during the winter season. At its highest, it can reach 100 in the summer. However, the majority of the year it will remain in the 60's - 80's, with the sun shining and a rainy day on occasion. This provides the perfect weather for all outdoor activities Claremont is known for, including hikes on the famous Wilderness Trail.

    Food & Drink at Claremont: Claremont has been dedicated to bringing the highest quality food and up-and-coming restaurants to the downtown area. Craft beer, gourmet burgers, and an outdoor dining experience are just a few of the highlights. Popular restaurants include Eureka Burger, The Back Abbey, and Bardot, all of which provide both quality options from the latest trends in food and drink, as well as live entertainment and an exciting night life experience. Outside of the downtown area, larger restaurants such as Buca di Beppo and El Ranchero continue to draw big crowds with their family dining experience and deals. Boutique cafe's such as 42nd Street and The Spot Cafe provide the opportunity to grab a quick bite of handmade sandwiches, bagels, and gourmet coffee.
