We have just received a very handy guide for visitors to Big Bear from the Resort Association and we’d like to pass it on to you. It describes the four (yes, four) ways off of the mountain.

Often times, on busy holiday weekends, it can take visitors hours to get down the hill to go home. Many times this is because everyone is trying to take the same route at the same time. By choosing one of the alternate routes out of Big Bear, you can save yourself time and frustration.

Romantic BedIt’s that time of the year again. No boys, not Superbowl time…..Valentine’s Day! Have you been giving your special someone the same old thing year after year? Flowers? Chocolates? A stuffed bear with a heart on the tummy? If the answer is yes then you need to step up your game, my friend. We here at RS Vacations Big Bear can help you make this Valentine’s Day one that she (or he) will never forget.

Some people think that this is a silly holiday created to sell cards, chocolate and flowers. I actually think it is important to celebrate romance. Our lives are so filled with work, stress, kids and activities that we don’t have time to give our all to our significant other very often. We need to remember that ‘spark’ that we had for one another way back at the beginning and kindle it every so often.

The best way to do this, in my opinion, is to do spontaneous things like the ones that you did when you were dating. How about a helicopter tour over a beautiful mountain resort? A zipline ride through towering pines? A segway tour through a quaint village? Skiing or snowboarding on fresh powder? A couple’s massage? Later, a candlelit dinner. A romantic soak in an inviting spa. Snuggling in front of a roaring fire. All these things are waiting for you in Big Bear.

Because Valentine’s Day falls mid-week this year, there are some amazing deals on all kinds of activities here in Big Bear designed just for couples. And RS Vacations has great mid-week pricing on all of our cabins. This is the perfect time to surprise your sweetheart with a romantic mountain getaway! Recapture the spark!

Keep reading the blog every day this week for details on all of the great deals waiting for you in Big Bear and visit www.RSVacations.net today to book one of our beautiful cabins. She (or he) will never forget it!
