You can never go wrong with a trip to Big Bear, California. But as the summer comes to an end around Labor Day Weekend, opportunities to enjoy the warmer weather in this alpine paradise are growing thinner. So, as this holiday approaches, it is the perfect time to take a trip to Big Bear. The following are five of the most incredible ways to spend Labor Day in Big Bear.
You cannot go to Big Bear without taking advantage of some of the most incredible hikes you will find throughout all of California. There is something for everyone, from short and easy strolls to challenging treks through the wilderness. Something you can always count on regardless of which hike you choose are incredible views and astounding beauty. For an easy hike, check out the Alpine Pedal Path on the north side of the lake. For something a bit more challenging, try the local favorite, Castle Rock Trail.
Hit the Water
There is no better way to spend Labor Day than out on the water. There are countless ways to do this, whether you want to just get a couple of kayaks and explore endless coves and beautiful shoreline, or you want to rent a boat. Sail boats, speed boats, and jet skis offer just a few ways to get out on the water to celebrate. There are six marinas along the shore where you can rent any number of water vessels.
Fishing is another one of those activities that pairs amazingly well with Labor Day, and there are endless ways you can enjoy this activity in Big Bear. You can simply find a place along the shore to cast a line, particularly near Big Bear Marina on the south shore, but you can also make it a very special experience with one of the town’s incredible fishing charters. You can head out into the lake on a boat or be taken to some of the most remote creeks and streams for a fly fishing experience unlike any other.
Picnic on the Mountain
A picnic is always made better by stunning views, and you will find no better than at the Snow Summit Base Camp. The ski runs are closed, but the Snow Summit Scenic Chair Lift is still operating, transporting people to the top of one of Big Bear’s tallest mountains. When you reach the top, you will be floored by the amazing views. Bring your own lunch and settle down for a picnic with loved ones at this incredible site.
The Music in the Mountains Summer Concert Series is sure to provide an amazing experience at 7,000 feet. At the Big Bear Discovery Center, the community will be coming together for the final concert of the season on Saturday, September 1st. The event is free, the air is fresh, and the music is amazing. This particular show features an incredible Eagles cover band.
