While Southern California might not bring to mind images of frosty mornings with cocoa in hand, a trip to Big Bear Lake around Christmas time is sure to change your mind. This charming destination tucked alongside a beautiful lake, lush forests and a village filled with quaint boutique shops brings holiday family-fun in a big way! When you’re in the mood to see Santa, take a sleigh ride or hit the slopes in style, Big Bear Lake is the perfect place to spend your holidays this year. Here are a few of the Big Bear Christmas events in the area you won’t want to miss out on!
Between November 27th and December 24th each year, visitors to Big Bear Lake can take part in Christmas in the Village every Saturday and Sunday. From 10:00 am until 4:00 pm guests can browse the Christmas tree lot, take advantage of restaurants staying open later than usual and perhaps most importantly, get a chance to meet Santa and Mrs. Clause! Keep your camera and wish list ready when you’re hitting up Christmas in the Village with little ones in tow.
When the cooler temperatures just aren’t enough and you’re in Big Bear between November 24th and December 24th, head over to Bear Valley Farms at 1601 E. Big Bear Boulevard to spend time in a space transformed into a complete winter wonderland. Kids will love this area for the several snow-based activities and when you’re looking for a family-fun moment, be sure to jump in for one of the many sleigh rides hosted throughout the evening. This magical and memorable stop is sure to put you in the holiday spirit from the moment you arrive.
If you’re picturing your holiday in Big Bear Lake with a little more of a thrill to it all, plan to spend some time at the Big Bear Alpine Slide for breathtaking speeds that will keep you coming back for more. During the winter months, this already heart-pounding slide is done up for tubing, making it even faster than its summertime counterpart. Race your way through the holidays with a stop at this fun-filled destination, and other Big Bear Christmas events.
