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!

Don’t forget to check out our cabins at RSVacations.net! Rates are still at the off-season level (plus we still have specials!!), so there is no better time to treat Dad to a fun, mountain getaway!

 

Lake Activities

 

Fishing – He can bring gear to fish on his own, or you can treat him to a day with an expert fishing guide. Either way, he can grill up some fresh fish for dinner after a relaxing day of fishing!

Sky Chair – The Sky Chair takes the work out of forest fun! Take a relaxing ride up the mountain, grab some lunch at the top, then hike, bike, or ride the chair back down.
