Travel Tips for Claremont
4th of July Festivities
Every 4th July there is a parade and festival in the city park. There is a talent competition and lots of booths for various organizations. You have to do it at least once to get that old hometown feel that is missing from modern life. The last time I went there was an Uncle Sam on stilts and 7-year old ballerinas dancing through the park. To top off the day there is a spectacular fireworks show at the colleges which you can pay to see or do like the locals do and lay a blanket on the lawn of a nearby college.
La Piccoletta - I'll write a proper restaurant review but you seriously need to find this place. It's the best Italian restaurant you may never find. A whole in the wall pasta place that generally has 4 sauces per week on a featured pasta. They have salad, a couple of appetizers, and desserts to die for flown in from Italy. The place is very small and can only accomodate 35 people so make a reservation or show up and hope they have room for you. Enough people do know where this place is that you will have to wait in a Friday or Saturday night.
Have a great cuppa joe
Tucked away in the parking lot behind Hero's Restaurant is Nick's Cafe. Many people who live in Claremont don't even know it's there. It isn't anything fancy and they only make your standard coffee and espresso drinks, but for those of you who are tired of the Starbucks format, you might just appreciate it. There is an indoor seating area that is non-smoking and an outdoor, covered seating area that allows smoking. Occasionally there are evenings that feature live entertainment, but don't expect a polished performance. Be sure to bring something to read, or you can play some of the games they have, such as backgammon or chess. Whatever you do, go there with the intention to stay for a while to really soak up the atmosphere and realax.
East Coast style town on West Coast
"Coolest Town East of Pasadena"
I love this town - it has Craftsman style buildings, great restaurants and there is always something to do. There is a parade and all day entertainment on July 4th plus many other celebrations throughout the year.
A nice, quiet city at the mountains.
Yes, America's most famous Highway is going through Claremont. This place is nice and quiet. Full of nice houses, yards and gardens. It is also very hot in the summer time. The good thing is that it's dry and not humid. During the summer season there are firefighters standing by the near mountains because the fire hazard is so great due to the extreme heat there. When we were down there, they were building a brand new freeway which is going through Claremont. Never enough freeways for Californians! :)
Ok, see if I can find a picture. I remember going down to the old town and seeing the city hall and the old train station. On the image you see the mountains and some beautiful, blossoming trees.
