The Vil Clare - Claremont CA Fun, Event-full, Photo-filled


There's so much to see and do in Claremont. Historic Route 66 (which is now known as Foothill Blvd.) is a main east-west thoroughfare and a very interesting drive. It's home to numerous shop, dining, entertainment sites and so much more... and it Celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2021!

The Claremont Colleges, California Botanic Garden and The Old School House are just a few of the interesting places found along this historic highway.

Wolfe's Market has undergone a transformation. Opened in 1917, it is now owned/operated by the 4th generation of Wolfe family members.
