Big Bear Lake is a great place for nature lovers or anyone who wants to spend a lot of time outside. During warmer months, the lake this city is named for is a great spot for boating and fishing. It is nearly seven miles long and nearly a mile at its widest. There are also boat tours if you want to enjoy the lake with very little effort on your part. The San Bernardino National Forest offers many trails of varying degrees of difficulty for mountain bikes, horse rides or hiking. The mountains and elevation also create the perfect setting for skiing when the snows come, and there are two ski resorts nearby.
Twenty-five miles northeast of sunny San Bernardino is the small community of Big Bear Lake, California. Due to its elevated location in the San Bernardino Mountains, it is a popular vacation spot with many lovely look outs. Homes in this area tend to follow a woodland theme, with most nestled into tree-filled lots and styled after old-fashioned log cabins.SHOW MORE
