Although the beauty of nature in Big Bear may make guests want to spend all their time outside enjoying it, there will be times during your stay that you may want to participate in some indoor activities. Maybe it’s a rare rainy day or the sun is shining a little too brightly for your taste, or maybe you just want to experience everything Big Bear has to offer—inside and out! In any case, this guide to indoor Big Bear attractions you will want to see is guaranteed to make your Big Bear vacation one you will never forget!
Big Bear Valley Historical Museum, 800 B Greenway Drive
The best way to get to know the place you’re visiting today is by taking a peek into its past and a visit to the Big Bear Valley Historical Museum allows you to do just that! Honoring the past by preserving its mementoes, the artifacts and exhibits stored within are fascinating and fun. Also offering the opportunity to try your hand at panning for gold, the museum is only open on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays from 10AM until 4PM, so be prepared and add it to your itinerary on one of those days.
Big Bear Theater Project, 1116 W Big Bear Boulevard
Lose yourself in the magic of the live shows performed by the Big Bear Theater Project by some of the most talented actors in the state! Offering showings of your favorite classic plays, this summer’s focal point will be the Concert Version of South Pacific. Tickets can be purchased at the box office, but if you want to make an extra donation, you can visit their website and make your donation there!
Brown Bear Gift Shop, 675 Pine Knot Avenue
Our favorite indoor attractions always involve some sort of retail therapy, and when you’re ready to pick up a few souvenirs, the Brown Bear Gift Shop is the first place you should stop! Selling everything from artwork to Zippos, if you can’t find it here you probably don’t need it. Aren’t you glad you packed light and now have plenty of room to carry all your purchases back home?
Big Bear Attractions and Movie Nights at the Cabin
Very often in life (and on vacation), the most fun can be had simply by staying home and enjoying the sweet comforts of a movie and some popcorn. Our Big Bear Cabins properties allow you to do just that! Throw a bag in the microwave, pour yourself a glass of wine, and sit down in front of the tv for a night of fun and relaxation. Reserve your cabin getaway today!
