Santa’s Village Big Bear Lake

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danc’d in their heads… A average December morning begins with the alarm beeping a tune that still sounds annoying no matter which ring tone selected on the phone.

Comedy Comes To Big Bear

Share

This weekend Big Bear Lake is having its first ever comedy festival. It’s kind of a big deal.

My First Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest!

Share

First, a bit of personal history. My name is Ali and I’m from Idaho. I lived there my entire life until I moved to Big Bear in June. I’ve been asked countless times, “why on earth would you move from Idaho to California?” The reasons were simple: 1) I hated living in Idaho; 2) I wanted to be closer to two of my sisters that live in SoCal; and 3) I was thirsty for a new adventure. I immediately began my quest for employment. Luckily for me, it didn’t take
