Even with the more modern development as LA has grown so big, the city of Claremont has managed to retain the sleepy nostalgic feel to a remarkable degree…It’s a great city to bike around, for sure, and the downtown, the area they call Claremont Village? It’s oh, so darn cute!

We stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont, which was darn nice. The pool area set the mood immediately and also reminded me how much I miss my undoubtedly nostalgic memories of California life.
