Things to do. Places to go.

Sightseeing and Hiking
I enjoy hiking and running, and taking photos. These are a few of my favorites spots in Big Bear.
Literally NEXT to the Boulder Bay Condo. Great place for a nice view of the sunset. Also a good spot for a picnic. The water ramp you can walk out to the center of the lake. This is a wonderful area, beautiful views of mountains and lake, nice walking paths, covered seating areas, benches. Great place to visit. The landscape of the mountains towering the lake in the middle looks great.

Great out and back trail day hike. Beautiful trail, pretty well kept, moderately trafficked with amazing views. Also dog friendly. It's a gradual incline, but nothing too brutal. It does however get more challenging if you continue right, onto the Pacific Crest Trail (Cougar Crest Trail ends at PCT). After about .3 miles you will meet a service road, take it right (there is a trail marker). It is a very steep climb up to the top. Bertha Peak gives you some pretty incredible 360 degree views of the region. This is a 5-6 miles round trip moderate hike with some great views of the lake from the north side. The climb is gradual most of the way. Once you reach the junction, you can go on the pacific crest trail (2600 miles fr Mexico to Canada ) that goes to Mexico (turn right) or Canada (turn left).Meet hikers that are doing the Mexico to Canada hike

Great hiking trail! The trail is crowded during the spring and summer time with hikers and backpackers making their way through Big Bear and onwards. The hike gives hikers great views of the Big Bear Lake from above.

This is about as easy as it gets, there’s no dirt involved either. The fully paved Alpine Pedal Path extends 2.5 miles one way on the North Shore from Stanfield Cutoff to the Solar Observatory (or vice versa). A diversion about halfway through will also take you to the Cougar Crest trail head and the Big Bear Discovery Center. You have options here!

the 'star' of this show.. Big Bear Lake... During summer it is enjoyed by fishermen, kayakers, boat enthusiast, seeking to escape the noise and stress of urban life below. Six years of drought has taken its toll on the waterfront, and Big Bear Lake has lost more than half of its water volume since 2011

From the road, you won’t see the beach because the water level is lower than the road level. There are small patches of sandy beaches. Put your swimsuit, put on sunblock, take your beach towel, and enjoy the day!

The Eye of God is a quartz dome. It is a megalith which is a sacred tribal landmark for the Serrano people who lived in the region 2,000 years ago. The Serranos worshipped the dome, which they referred to as the eye of their creator Kruktat (Kokitach). Legend says God was watching to make sure the Indians treated one another well. The Eye of God Trail is a 1.8-mile roundtrip hike to Eye of God, which has its trailhead on Burns Canyon Road.[8] The Eye of God is still an impressive site, it is located near the 156-acre Baldwin Lake Ecological Preserve, that includes a unique pebble plain plant community, as well as a vernal wet meadow habitat, significant as a wintering site for bald eagles.

This is a scenic mostly-up-out and mostly-down-back hike of 6+ miles. It's a nice distance and a good workout for those of us in moderate shape.

Food scene
I am a 'foodie' at heart (did my well stock kitchen gave me away?!?!). I like good food. I like unique flavors. Once I find a place I like, I return to it often. Many of these places are "locals" best kept secret. Some don't say much from the outside (shacks, counter eating, remote locations), but boy oh boy is the food good... that is why they are listed here. They are not listed in any particular order, but the ones that are my #1 Favorite are clearly marked. Most of them have websites with menu, and you can also Google reviews.
This is not only a good place to go for breakfast, but it is also a MUST for tourists. The place is small, 10 tables and counter seating for 4-5, with very unique decor. The Kitchen is very small but the food is awesome. Portions are HUGE, so you can share. Staff is super friendly, Cook is a riot... when he is done with breakfast, if he is not tired, they serve lunch! This is a very tiny, but popular place, so get there early because there are always loooong lines for seating! Tuesday is "locals day", no long lines! MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: “THE MESS” and"Fat Pat"…

This is my #1 Favorite BBQ place in Big Bear, and I come here once a week. This is a little shack along Highway 18, right before you enter the Big Bear Village. The place sells out super fast.... Ron (the owner) cooks only a limited amount of meat every day.... It's so good and popular that they sell out within 60-90 minutes, and have to turn away customers. The place is only open from Thursday-Sunday and only for a few hours each day. Nothing fancy... pick your meat, your sides, and sit at the picnic tables. MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: everything!

This is my #1 Favorite Mexican Breakfast place in Big Bear, and I come here weekly! You can literally walk to this place, as it is next to the Boulder Bay Condo (on Highway 18). It is a family restaurant and they serve traditional Country and South of the Border dishes Blanca and her daughters are very friendly! Tell them Camila from the Condo sent you... MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: the Chorizo Scramble is so goooood! and Pigs in a Blanket are very tasty too.

This is my #1 Favorite Mexican place in Big Bear. I come every Monday for Margarita day, sit at the outside bar area, and watch people in the Village. It is truly one of the few good Mexican places in this town, with music and ambiance. They serve traditional Mexican dishes… and great Margaritas! The House Margarita is $8 during Happy Hour. It is located in the heart of the Village. I enjoy seating on the patio, listen to music and watch people walk by. MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: all the Margaritas... the Taco Salad, Carne Asada fries, flautas and taquitos.

This is my #1 Favorite "place" in Big Bear. I love the atmosphere, very classy but not too classy were you feel you need to dress up. I go every week, and ask to sit at the Fire Pit bar area. The food is great. Tons of drink options! Beer, wine, specialty cocktails (Peanut Colada... for real... very good!). This is probably the only place in Big Bear where one can get a decent steak, you have to pay a bit for it ($20), but it is really good. There is always a wait, so make reservations (if you can). Live music on weekends, dog friendly patio and really cute rooftop patio. MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: Truffle fries, Loaded tater tots (all of them!) and Skirt Steak with sprouts and corn.

It is a very popular hang out area, always a lot of people (hence the name), they gravitate toward the fire pits and the bar. Eclectic menu, lots of salad, fresh and organic.

Customers have been known to drive up the hill just for a piece of pie. Their soups, chili and machaca are all original Teddy Bear recipes. They serve old fashioned shakes and malts. MY PERSONAL FAVORITES: Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie and Hot Wings

Not sure why it shows up as BIG BEAR LOCAL, but this review is for TROPICALI, and they are located in the Village. This place is fun, and I mean, FUN... the guys working the counter appear to be stuck in a 1970's Beavis and Butthead Beach Movie! If you want to feel like you are in Hawaii (ambiance, music and food), this is the place to go. This place serves Hawaiian food, poke bowls and sushi. Very VERY good quality of food... but a bit pricey. I wish the sizes would be a bit larger, but the ambiance and food makes up for it. They have outdoor seating in a 'beach' area, and inside it totally rad, with retro 70's Hawaiian decor.

Big Bear is a small town, we don't have many shops. We have two supermarkets, a K-Mart and a Dollar Tree... (I do a lot of online shopping!). There are lots of gift shops and small boutiques in the Village. We have weekend crowds that come up for Thrift Stores and Vintage shop. Between March-September we have the Farmer's Market.

There is a long stretch of sand where one can enjoy swimming and playing with sand. There is a huge parking so no hassle of finding parking and plenty of picnic tables too. As the name suggests people bring their own boats and jet skies and use this launch area to get in the water. I highly recommend this place for picnicking, swimming and water sport.

Plan Ahead and Prepare for Winter Driving
THESE ARE RECOMMENDATIONS... do your OWN research! Carry snow chains or cables. Be prepared for extreme weather. If you need to put on chains, pull off to the side of the road and out of the way of oncoming traffic. Ice is slippery and oncoming cars can slide, so you want to be in a protected area for chain installation. If you are taking it slow on the roads, find a spot to pull over and let other cars pass. Download the APP for CalTrans Quick Maps for road condition updates. (Hwy. 330, Hwy 18, and Hwy 38) Fully charge cell phones prior to heading up or down the mountain.

Leave No Trace Behind
Pack it in, pack it out. If you brought it up to Big Bear, use it, and take it back home with you, don't throw in streets. Dispose of waste properly: Don't leave broken plastic sleds and snow toys, dirty diapers, empty containers on the side of the road. Take them to the City Dump, or take them home with you. Leave what you find and respect wildlife. Don't pick flowers, remove rocks, or touch/chase wildlife. If humans touch wildlife, they get imprinted and won't recognize their own species afterwards. Keep away from wild animals!
