Mother’s Day is a special day every year to celebrate a person that does so much for us, but frequently this holiday is under-celebrated. Although she will appreciate her massage gift card and piece of jewelry, we suggest changing it up and trying out a trip to Big Bear. Here are some of the best things to do in Big Bear for Mother’s Day.
Upgrade Her to a Mountain Massage
The gift of a relaxing massage is a go-to favorite present on Mother’s Day for good reason. Many moms do amazing things every day and need the opportunity to get rid of the stress. A massage is a great way to go, but while in Big Bear you need to embrace the beauty around you. The Mountain Mobile Massage and Spa is the perfect upgrade for the mother supporting you. This is a professional mobile massage service that combines the beauty of Big Bear with aromatherapy and massage to create an immersive experience. They also have several different packages available to you to make sure they can fit into any budget.
The weather in Big Bear around Mother’s Day is generally around the 60s or 70s, so make sure that you spend the morning with an outdoor champagne brunch. Many top-tier restaurants in Big Bear have amazing Mother’s Day brunches, but one of our favorites is the Wyatt’s Saloon Brunch. They host an outdoor and pet-friendly brunch at the convention center every year that includes extras on top of your breakfast. The extra features include live country-western music, a kids play area, an omelet bar, bottomless mimosas, and complimentary flowers for all mothers in attendance. This is an amazing Mother’s Day California experience that is a must-do for a Mother’s Day trip to Big Bear.
Cook Her a Feast
If you are staying in an amazing vacation rental during your trip, you also have the option to cook your own meals in a fully equipped kitchen. Your mother has always ensured you are well-fed, so it’s time to return the favor. You can visit any one of the amazing local grocery stores and pick up fresh ingredients to make her favorite meal. With some of the amazing views throughout Big Bear, you can even take your meal on the road and enjoy a picnic in the park to create a lifelong memory for mom.
Enjoy Big Bear Lake
No matter what time of year you choose to visit, one of the best things to do in Big Bear is to head out on the lake. Around Mother’s Day, the temperatures are amazing and make for perfect conditions for a boat day. Although a bit crisp in the morning, this is really the best weather for going boating. Visitors can charter a boat and celebrate Mother’s Day in California on the water with all of those that mean most to her. Popular lake activities include water skiing, rafting, wakeboarding, fishing, and even just relaxing in the son. One of the lesser-known options is renting a paddleboat or kayak. This is another great option for those looking for more of an adventurous activity rather than a leisurely boat trip. Although this requires a little more physical effort, this is an amazing way to see the lake. A lake trip is really fully customizable depending on what mom wants to do.
The crisp mornings and beautiful afternoons present the perfect opportunity to get outdoors in beautiful Big Bear. Big Bear is known for its all-star selection of scenic hiking trails that provide for the perfect photo opportunities. One of the most popular trails is Pine Knot Trail to Grand View Point. This is a 6.9-mile trail that is rated moderate difficulty. This trail isn’t a flat walk, but still isn’t overly difficult either making it perfect for avid hikers and beginners alike. This trail has some of the most beautiful views of Big Bear Lake. If you are bringing your furry friend with you to Big Bear this is also the perfect trail. If you are looking for a slightly shorter trail then we suggest the Castle Rock Trail. This 2.6-mile trail can be completed in under two hours. There is some elevation gain on this trail, but it is easy enough and provides for some amazing views as well.
