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.

The restaurants are my favorite part about Claremont's Village and surrounding areas. There is a good variety of options for all types of meals. For dining on the cheap, there are a few decent Mexican joints. For a more fancy night out, all-you-can-eat sushi or Italian might be in order. There are plenty of frozen yogurt places, and even a new ice cream shop in the Packing House which uses liquid nitrogen to make your specialty ice cream just for you! Coffee shops are full of students studying away, and bars full of students celebrating the weekend.

The main contact I have had with the city's public services is for when students at the school need assistance--such as needing Paramedics for health conditions or from drinking too much. Their response time is great and they work well with the security provided by the colleges. The laws are strict as the area is a little upscale. For example, there is no overnight parking without a permit. However, unlike many other cities, you can get an overnight pass from your computer, and you don't even need to print anything!
