Get a schooling in relaxation at Claremont
You might know Claremont as that town with five liberal arts colleges and two graduate schools within its city limits. What you might not know is that it boasts a vibrant downtown, called Claremont Village, where more than 150 mom-and-pop restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and music venues create a relaxed atmosphere for all ages. If that weren't enticing enough, the Metrolink/Transit Center drops off passengers just a baseball toss away. The tab: A king bed at Casa 425 begins at $195. Breakfast or lunch for two can be had for less than $20 at Some Crust Bakery, while dinner for two at the Press Restaurant costs about $35. Plenty of free parking is available on 1st Street between Oberlin Avenue and Indian Hill Boulevard.
