Visit Big Bear for the Holidays
No matter what season, there’s always something going on in Big Bear for the holidays. This is the year to start a new family tradition of holidays in Big Bear! Imagine the memories you’ll create!
Spend Independence Day weekend up in the mountains, watching the fireworks from aboard the Miss Liberty on Big Bear Lake, from the shore at Captain John’s Harbor and Marina, or from way up high in one of the Scenic Sky Chairs at Snow Summit Resort. Or, if you’ve booked one of our Big Bear lakefront cabins, just sit out on your cabin’s front porch and enjoy the show. What could be more American than celebrating the Fourth of July in Big Bear with its long history. Grizzly bear hunting (sadly these majestic, hump-backed creatures were all killed off by 1906), gold mining (also long in the past) and Hollywood connections are just a few interesting bits of the area’s history.
Book your holiday Big Bear cabin to see the fall colors (which are at their peak from mid-October to early November) and enjoy autumn events like the Big Bear Village Scarecrow Festival during mid-September through early November, the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest (Southern California’s largest Oktoberfest celebration which takes place every weekend from early September through late October), or Trick or Treat in the Village, where Big Bear Lake’s local shops host trick or treating at their storefronts and booths throughout the Village. For a unique perspective and to really experience the fall foliage, take a zipline tour over and through the wild colored trees, a horseback tour where you can imagine yourself as an old gold prospector, or a helicopter tour where you can view the entire area while soaring with the eagles above the clouds! Way more fun than a car ride along a scenic roadway – although you can do that too!
Bask in the holiday sentimentality of a white Christmas spent going on horse-drawn sleigh rides over snowy meadows and winding through the dense forest, hearing only the muffled sound of horses’ hooves and jingling sleigh bells. And there’s hot cocoa and caroling at Chirp Nature Center, arts and crafts, and plenty of Gluhwein at Barrel 33, and the kids will enjoy seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Big Bear locations like the Village or Snow Summit. Plus, you can buy all your gifts for family and friends in town – there’s a wide variety of novelty and souvenir shops (including the Brown Bear Gift Shop and Big Bear Discount), healing, nature and wildlife shops, and more. Plus, the area resorts like Snow Summit and Bear Mountain will be open through the holidays, and festively decorated so you can enjoy skiing, snow tubing and more with a back drop of holiday fun. The entire family will enjoy Nightime Glow Tubing!
Ring in the new year with the annual New Year’s Eve Torchlight Parade at Snow Summit, where skiers and snowboarders ski down the mountain with lights to the giant New Year Eve bash at the base of the mountain. It’s an unforgettable experience, whether you participate in the parade or just enjoy the show. Big Bear is famous for its ideal skiing conditions, making winter holidays like Christmas and New Year’s the perfect time to visit.
And don’t worry about things closing down for the holidays or because the season is over. Not in Big Bear, we’re a year-round vacation destination these days. Your family can enjoy a traditional Easter or Christmas Brunch, or Thanksgiving Dinner in a local area restaurant. Or better yet, order take-out and enjoy your meal in your cabin, at your leisure.
Our holiday vacation rentals in Big Bear allow you and your guests to enjoy a charming home away from home during your time in Big Bear, giving you a place to come back to after a long day of fun spent exploring Big Bear and all that it has to offer.
