Inland Empire- definitely Claremont, love The Village, and adjacent Claremont Colleges. It’s beautiful leafy green tree lined streets and walkable neighborhoods, good train service to downtown LA, and even 24 hour bus service to LA.

Inland Empire- Redlands similar to Claremont, just a bit far from LA. Beautiful historic homes, and wintertime scenery is quite awesome with a back drop of snow capped mountains, honorable mention, Upland CA.

LA County-Manhattan Beach, beautiful dense walkable city with clean beaches. Although it can get crowded, and touristy, but not like Santa Monica & Venice. It has a very different vibe altogether much more laid back. Beautiful upscale downtown with ocean and pier view.

LA County-San Marino, Arcadia, Pasadena, well basically all of the cities in the San Gabriel Valley along the 210 freeway corridor. Much of these cities have quaint downtowns, and beautiful leafy tree lined streets and look very similar to Pasadena.

Orange County-Laguna Beach probably the most beautiful beach in Southern California, nice walkable vibrant downtown full of Art Galleries next to the beach.

Orange County-Orange, specifically Old Town Orange and the historic walkable neighborhood surrounding it.
This is an excellent run down. I agree completely with everything you said
