Located in the heart of Claremont, "Claremont Village" is a popular collection of street-front small stores, boutiques, art galleries, offices, and restaurants. Claremont has been a winner of the National Arbor Day Association's "Tree City USA" award for 22 consecutive years. When the city incorporated in 1907, local citizens started what has become the city's tree-planting tradition. In 2007, Claremont Village was expanded, adding a cinema, a boutique hotel, offices, and retail space - including Arteco's famous Claremont Packing House.

COOKHOUSE FOOD HALL
For seven decades, the historic 1870 Cookhouse at Vail Headquarters was the location where Vail Ranch’s cooks lived, preparing and serving hearty meals to the working cowboys and ranch hands of the 90,000-acre Vail Ranch. It was the center of ranch life, where the ranching crew and community gathered to eat and drink, discuss work, swap stories and socialize.
Now, the Cookhouse Food Hall at Vail carry out this tradition with four chef-owned and operated kitchens, joined together to create a unique cookhouse dining experience. The Cookhouse will have indoor and outdoor communal dining tables, and counter-ordering. It will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night bites every day of the week.
