With a population of 35,000, the City of Claremont is located at the foothills of the majestic San Gabriel mountains only 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. As one of the top five places to live in the U.S. (according to Money Magazine in 2007), Claremont is the rich blend of New England charm and Southern California beauty featuring tree-lined streets, historic Spanish architecture, and Victorian homes. Claremont residents are characterized by their unique warmth and open spirit that embraces diversity and promotes a balanced, active community.

Claremont is home to the world-renowned Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five liberal arts colleges and two graduate universities, and the Claremont School of Theology. At the center of town, walking distance from Pilgrim Place, is the Claremont Village, a collection of quaint specialty shops, galleries and fine restaurants.  Its proximity to the mountains and Mt. Baldy hiking trails also makes Claremont an outdoor oasis for Pilgrim Place residents.
