Claremont is a subtle blend of New England charm and southern California beauty, with a unique combination of past, present, and future. The city reflects its rich heritage as a citrus center, educational, cultural, and community center of fine residential homes (many of historical significance). The community takes pride in its architectural heritage and small-town atmosphere - from ivy-covered college campuses and Victorian homes on quiet tree-lined streets, to quaint village shops. With the many art exhibits, lectures, and concerts provided by the Claremont Colleges and various local organizations, Claremont has long been known as the cultural arts center for the Pomona Valley.
Claremont's strong sense of community is largely due to the preservation of the historic downtown Village, which is the core of commercial area of the city. Located within walking distance for both college students and most of Claremont's large retirement population, this attractive civic and commercial center has thrived and maintained its vitality and historical integrity. Indeed, the center may soon be one of the last traditional downtown shopping areas in Southern California. Outside the Village, newer and beautifully designed commercial, financial, and professional centers have developed in the community in balance with residential growth.
