Even if your kids have just started back up in school again, they are probably already looking forward to their fall break. Take your kids on a vacation they will be talking about for years to come with a fall break getaway to Big Bear. There are so many incredible activities and attractions your kids can enjoy during this time off school. Here is how you can plan for a family getaway to Big Bear:
49th Annual Oktoberfest
You might be wondering if Oktoberfest is really the best event to take your kids to visit. If you have not experienced Big Bear’s Oktoberfest as a family yet, you are missing out! The Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is just as much a children’s event as it is for adults. Bring your kids to the 49th Oktoberfest where they can listen to authentic German bands, dine on delicious German food, play in a bounce house, have their face painted, participate in games, and so much more. This year’s festival will run from September 7th through November 2nd, so you have plenty of time to take part in Oktoberfest.
Visit the Big Bear Discovery Center
Just because your kids are on fall break does not mean they cannot participate in educational activities. Take them to the Big Bear Discovery Center where they can learn all about the area with exciting exhibits. These activities include arts and crafts, hands on displays, nature walks, and live animals that are native to the region. Entry into the Big Bear Discovery Center is relatively inexpensive so the whole family can enjoy it on a budget.
Relax on Big Bear Lake
As mentioned, Big Bear Lake is the biggest attraction in the area and for good reason. Take your kids for a relaxing day at the beach where they can build sandcastles, splash around in the water, enjoy a beach picnic, and much more. Local rental shops make it easy to find all the beach gear you need including canoes and kayaks. There is no reason to bring your own gear from home, so pack light and enjoy Big Bear Lake.
