Cute, adorable little town with very good restaurants. The commuter train to LA is a short walk away and it's not a long ride to the city either. [View Full Report]

Safe, small, with some cool dining options (italian, mexican, japanese, burgers) and grocery stores. Downside is anything big must be bought at LA, which is an hour away. [View Full Report]

Most of Claremont approaches perfect. Some parts of the town, especially around the freeway, were prescient reminders of the hustle and bustle 45 minutes away. These are removed from campus, however. [View Full Report]

Quaint town but 50 miles from the excitement and action of LA. If you want a quiet safe place these schools are for you. [View Full Report]

See above^. Unfortunately, you need a car if you even want to get to some places at the other end of town. [View Full Report]

Claremont is a very lovely town. While we were there, its downtown was under construction, and the addition of lots of new shops/restaurants is anticipated to be completed soon. [View Full Report]

quaint shops & good eateries. Plenty of opportunity to have a cup of coffee at a sidewalk cafe in the fine Californian weather. I would be quite happy as a parent visiting here. [View Full Report]

Many shops and restaurants, as well as services (banks, dry cleaners) would be of interest to students. A car would not be necessary because everything is within walking distance to campus. [View Full Report]
