Explore the Great Outdoors

Yes, you’ll still have to bundle up, but temperatures in March in Big Bear are slightly warmer than they were mid-winter so there’s no reason outdoor enthusiasts can’t head out and explore over the holiday. This St. Patrick’s Day is an ideal time to lace up the boots or snowshoes and make the most of time on the trails.

The Alpine Pedal Path is a great option for a family outing as it’s paved and well-maintained in all seasons. It’s also a one-stop resource for great scenery, wildlife watching, and landscape photography if you choose. There are picnic areas and signs along the path that also point out the area’s historical significance.

If you’re in the mood for more of a challenge, the Cougar Crest Trail is calling. This pathway has steeper elevation gains and connects to the Pacific Crest Trail as well.

Be a Part of Wyatt’s St. Patrick’s Day Party

No matter when you make your way to Big Bear, Wyatt’s Grill & Saloon is a sensational place to grab a bite and a drink. Over St. Patrick’s Day, the party vibe is elevated here as they host their Wearing of the Green event on March 16. This is an annual St. Patrick’s Day gathering that’s loved by locals and visitors alike and is held at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center at 42900 Big Bear Boulevard. The event runs from 4:00 pm until 11:00 pm and a complimentary take home shuttle is available for guests beginning at 7:00 pm. The doors open right at 4:00 pm and there’s no admission to enjoy this holiday event.

The Wearing of the Green gathering features Irish bands, a menu of traditional Irish dishes for guests to enjoy alongside a Lucky Charms fishing contest, and a Wishing Well. If you can’t imagine a St. Patrick’s Day celebration without green beer included, there’s no need to worry because they’ll have that available too. The DJ takes to the stage around 5:00 pm, and as the music plays, guests can make a wish in the Wishing Well, participate in Irish-themed contests like guessing how many gold coins are in a jar, or make the most of the kid’s activity area. There’s no shortage of options for fun at this family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day event that just might be the highlight of your March getaway.
