As we have been enjoying spectacular, spring weather the last several weeks, I got to thinking how very much I love this time of year in Big Bear. It brought to mind a post of mine from several years ago at this time and I decided to share it once again. Yes, Big Bear is a beautiful wintertime destination and is what we are known for, but it is not only a wintertime destination. Enjoy!

As winter in Big Bear Lake has come to a close, I can’t help but look forward to spring and summertime in the mountains. I love the warming days and cool nights, the flowers and trees blooming, the blue skies….truly beautiful.

One of the most surprising things to me is that most people believe that Big Bear is strictly a winter destination – no more than a ski town. I can’t even count how many guests ask me what we do up here the rest of the year. Or, when I suggested that they visit us in spring or summer, they asked “but what is there to do?”

I guess I take it all for granted because I moved to Big Bear as a small child in 1977 with my family, but truly winter is my least favorite season in Big Bear. Don’t get me wrong, the snow is beautiful and I do enjoy skiing, but there is just so much more to do in the other months. Lake activities such as kayaking, fishing, boating and more, golfing, mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, the zoo, go-karts, ropes courses, climbing walls, ziplines, the alpine slide, and waterslide. The list goes on and on!! Not to mention the shopping and restaurants in The Village, art shows, wine walks, car shows, music events, theater offerings, and holiday events – including the annual Independence Day fireworks show.

While ‘June gloom’ gets you down, we are enjoying sparkling blue skies! When you are sweating it out in July, we are putting on a light sweater for our evening walks. Seriously people, it is GORGEOUS up here in the spring, summer, and fall!! And guess what? It is less expensive to enjoy Big Bear in the “off” seasons as well. Do yourself a favor and come up to explore Big Bear Lake in the warmer months. You will be amazed at our perfect weather and how much there is to do up here.

Yesterday I mused about dads and how it might be nice to surprise them with something really special this year for Father’s Day instead of getting them yet another tie. 😉 Well, today I will give you some ideas of what kind of fun you can have this weekend (and every summer/fall weekend) in Big Bear Lake. You will be amazed at how many different things to do there are in our little slice of heaven!
