Let’s be real: Not every vacation that you take will have scenic views or landmarks that will take your breath away. If every place you visited was so, you would soon lose your sense of wonder. With that being said, when you visit Big Bear, you have to expect the most incredible sights and things to do at Big Bear. Our natural landscape is one that never ceases to amaze even our lifelong residents, and if this is your first time visiting, well, it wouldn’t be the first time one of our guests fell in love with Big Bear at first sight. Here’s a list of the most incredible sights Big Bear has to offer.
This is not your ordinary park. Fawn Park offers a special place to sit back, relax, and get in touch with your softer, gentler side. A covered wagon attached to statues of a bull team raring to go greets you at the entrance, and inside, the fun continues. Featuring a playground for the kids, more statuary surprises, and an incredible moving 9/11 memorial, Fawn Park is a favorite of the things to do at Big Bear of everyone who visits.
As you walk along the boardwalk, you may find yourself stopping every so often with your mouth dropping open; the sights and sounds found in this amazing wildlife preserve are that amazing. Keep an eye out for deer at sunset when they come out to dine, and watch the skies for the occasional appearance of a hawk or even a bald eagle. Big Bear is a prime nesting spot for America’s favorite feathered symbol of freedom!
Ok, we’re betting you are thinking to yourself, “How can a restaurant be an incredible sight?” Well, the restaurant itself may not be all that photogenic, but when you first catch sight of their dinner plate-sized pancakes, we think your camera will be out and documenting the “phenomenon” pretty quick!
This scenic drive is a favorite of the locals, and when you drive its 10-mile length, you’ll understand why. The trees, hills, and even the sky along this road somehow look postcard perfect; keep your camera handy and plan on making a lot of stops. You could even pack a picnic and extend your time in paradise for an hour or two!
Charming on the inside, breathtaking on the outside, watching the sun set over the lake that is your backyard will make this vacation the most memorable ever. Pour yourself a glass of wine, plop down on an Adirondack chair, and prepare to be amazed. We can guarantee you’ve never seen a prettier sunset in your life, and it comes at no extra charge when you stay with us. Contact us to reserve your vacation rental today!
