The city that is dubbed "The city of trees and PhDs" should be a great place to live and learn. Claremont has been featured in Money Magazine as the 5th best place to live in 2007- probably because it's tree-lined and at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains in the Pomona Valley. There is truly some breathtaking scenery in Claremont. The city is also home to 7 institutions of higher learning. You can take your pick from private to public colleges or universities that are in Claremont. Either way, the town is a great place to relax and learn new job skills.
