When it comes to a Big Bear vacation, the longer the better. This is because you could spend an incredible amount of time here and still not see, do, and taste everything. With that being said, you can certainly get a good feel for the place while having an amazing time throughout a simple weekend getaway, but it never hurts to have an idea of how you will get the most out of your time here. The following are a few tips on during your 48 hour Big Bear vacation.
Day One of Your Big Bear Vacation
When you see this beautiful place, you are going to want to jump right into some exploring. But make sure you get a delicious bite to eat beforehand, which you can find at any number of Big Bear classics, like Peppercorn Grill, which offers quality American fare. Now that you are all fueled up, it is time to take advantage of this unparalleled natural beauty! There are many ways to do this, but hiking is always a good place to start. Find a medium difficulty hike and beautiful views in a local favorite in Castle Rock Trail, or just go for a simple stroll along the north shore of the lake on the Alpine Pedal Path Trail. Find a beautiful spot to settle down and break out the picnic for a pleasant lunch. As the light begins to fade from the sky, hop on the scenic sky chair at Snow Summit. This one-mile journey up the mountain culminates with the best views in town—the perfect cherry on top of the first day in Big Bear.
Day Two Adventures
Now that it is day two and you have been acquainted with the area, it is time to hit the lake! There are so many ways that you can get a full day of fun at the lake. For starters, you can simply find a nice section of shoreline and relax on the shore, go for refreshing swims, cast a line out for some relaxing fishing, and more. If you want to take it to the next level, rent a speed boat, sail boat, jet skis, or anything in between from a variety of places like Big Bear Marina on the South Shore. Along with your lake adventures, you can explore the streets of town, finding art galleries, bars, venues, endless restaurants, and much more.
