September – the kids are back in school and life is returning to normal – whatever that is! What a perfect time to plan a quick ‘get-away’! Lucky for us, Southern California has a host of options, including the delightful city of Claremont CA.


Conveniently located 30 miles east of Los Angeles and just north of Ontario Airport, Claremont is justifiably famous for it many institutes of higher learning (there are seven colleges in all), this oasis of calm is an easy 1 – 1 ½ hour drive from the Inland Empire, San Diego, Orange County. It’s also a paradise for foodies, shoppers and anyone who wants to kick back and find some peace and quiet.
