You probably don’t need an extra reason to visit Big Bear. To be perfectly honest, this is one of the most idyllic places on Earth, but if it makes you feel guilty to tell your boss, “Hey, I’m going to Big Bear for three days or more of peace, relaxation, and outdoor activities!” then tell him or her, “It’s Columbus Day and Fall Break for my kids; they’ve worked really hard in school this year and I am rewarding them!” Problem solved, and you get to enjoy an impromptu vacation in the cool mountain air! And now that you have the time off, here’s some fun things to keep you busy while you’re here!
Visit Big Bear During Oktoberfest!
How fortunate that Columbus Day is in October and you will be visiting right in the middle of our two-month celebration! Yes, Oktoberfest is a really big deal in Big Bear; we’ve been celebrating for over 150 years, and we think we get it right! The weekend of Columbus Day, you can expect much of the same, plus the Safe Slam Beer Drinking and Beer Pong Contest along with your live entertainment!
Let’s Go Leafing!
The nights are getting cooler and the scents of fall are wafting through the air.

Fall is here, and Columbus Day weekend is the prime time to view the beauty! Hike the trails that traverse Aspen Grove and be prepared to be wowed by the colorful show put on by Mother Nature!

This could be the perfect time to ask that special question, if you get what we mean!
