The centerpiece of the tree-lined, walkable downtown is Claremont Village, a collection of 150 locally owned boutiques, art galleries, eateries and entertainment venues. But like the rest of the Inland Empire, Claremont’s true appeal lies in its celebration of the outdoors through attractions like Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, bike-friendly streets reminiscent of a quaint Eastern seaboard village and hiking at nearby Mount Baldy.
