Discover an alpine resort in the heart of Southern California at Big Bear Lake. The lake is a destination for enjoying the peaceful natural setting and taking part in a variety of outdoor activities. The waters provide excellent fishing and sailing opportunities, while the surrounding area is great for hiking and cycling. In the wintertime the hills around the lake offer some of California's best skiing. The adjacent communities offer plenty of shopping, dining, and sightseeing, as well as numerous places to stay.
