Best Vacations:  Big Bear Lake Guest Reviews Site

Big Bear valley is a four season resort as well as a beautiful place to live all year round.

Editorial by: Big Bear Lake author John Bryan

There are three major highways to enter the valley as well as an airport.

But for this journey we will begin on highway 18 which begins in the City of San Bernardino, California. The 45 minute drive up the mountain is in itself a scenic wonder however when you cross over the dam on our new bridge you will enter an area we call Boulder Bay. Just past the bay you will find historic 5 acre Golden Bear Gottages resort filled with 28 restored cabins of all sizes fron little Jacuzzi studios to large group cabins as large as 5 or 7 bedrooms.

Just a block before Golden Bear Cottages you'll find a brand new park on the lake, on your left, because it also provides ample parking a dock that is often occupied by fishermen and ladies with a great lake view!

Another quarter mile on your left and you will see a sign for Pleasure Point Marina which has as much to do about boat rentals, guided fishing tours and wakeboarding as well as full and part time What To Do In Big Bear fishing and boating!

Big Bear valley is a beautiful four season resort as well as a beautiful place to live all year round.

Another quarter mile on your right up highway 18 and you will find a locals favorite called Azteca Grill with authentic Mexican dishes to die for at very reasonable prices including beer and wine. Say hello to your hosts Arturo and Rosa for us!

And would believe just another quarter mile up the road on your right you will find a long time outdoor fun park called Alpine Slide. With Go carts, Miniature Golf and Bob Sled it operates 12 months of the year and provides fun for Kids of all ages.

Another quarter mile and you have to make a decision. Do you wish to go straight ahead and enter the village with dozens and dozens of shops and visit one of Big Bears most famous photo artist, Tim Wolcott at his world famous Gallery Of The American Landscapes. Or turn left, follow the curve and just on your right you will discover the Bowing Barn with tons of things to do including a bar with a dance floor. And believe it or not just a few feet more and the next barn red building is Big Bears newest entertainment center, the Big Bear Fun Plex with its own lazer-tag court, alpine roller coaster and bumper cars, pool tables, arcade games and did we mention the pizza restaurant inside?

By the way just few blocks more on your right and you will the office for Action Zipline which is a 3 hour excursion high up in the forest with nine zip lines that are sure to open your eyes and give your heart a thrill. Don't miss this "once in a lifetime opportunity"

Now just for a minute let me introduce you to our beautiful forest with over 450 miles of off road vehicle paths as well as an untold number of miles of mountain bike paths and while we're on the subject of bike paths just a quarter of a mile on your right you will find Summit Blvd. entrance to that well known premier ski slope and right on the corner with a huge parking lot is another premier business called Chains Required that not only rents bikes in the summer but skis in the winter. What an ideal location.

By now you know that Big Bear is all about fresh air and recreation with super relaxation!

When you are well rested from the recreating and shopping, let us introduce you to just two more places you will want to know about. Go back down Moonridge road and turn right and drive past the Stater Brothers and Von's shopping centers and about a mile down the road you will find a fun place on your right called Big Bear Snow Play and of course it's only open in the winter but on a very gentle hill that's
just right for small children as well as the adults you might have with you.

And would you believe right across the highway is a giant of a building called The Big Bear Lake Convention Center. This building happens to house the largest Octoberfest celebration in the state of California as well as a dozen major events throughout the year. And would you believe it can hold up to 1500 people? For you Corporate types that are looking for a location that provides a change in atmosphere with a ton of
old-world hospitality the Big Bear Lake convention center is worth a look-see. Transportation from your accomodations the valley is available.

The Big Bear Valley Historical Societies building and exhibit is just a couple more miles out to the east of here housing a museum of gold rush and more mining information and such including the original settlers, the Serrano Indians.

For more about local events and to get additional traveler's information, stop by the office at Golden Bear Cottages near Boulder Bay at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. The friendly office staff will provide you with visitor's maps and local coupons for boat rentals, stores and restaurants. They have a wounderful mountain gift shop there too. You can also call the visitor's information office at 1-800-461-1023.
