May is just over the horizon, and this is a great time to start planning a family getaway to Big Bear. In many areas school is near recess, and the entire family could use a nice relaxing getaway to celebrate. Here are a few upcoming May events that might help motivate you.
Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you in Big Bear and support a great cause on May 6th. The annual Walk MS is a fundraiser to support research working to end Multiple Sclerosis. You can register online now to start building a support team at this link. The walk starts and ends at the head of the Alpine Pedal Path next to North Shore Elementary School. Registration opens at 8:30am.
If you’re a budding gourmet, the Tuesday Farmer’s Market is one stop you’ll want to include during your visit. Our Five Star Vacation Rental homes all have full kitchens, and most are equipped to meet the needs of even the most experienced chefs. Gather some locally-grown ingredients at the Farmer’s Market, and you’re well on your way to a great meal cooked in the comfort and convenience of your own kitchen. The Farmer’s Market runs every Tuesday until September from 8:30am to 1pm at the Big Bear Convention Center at 42900 Big Bear Blvd.
Birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts will want to plan their visit around the International Bird Day at the Big Bear Discovery Center on May 13th. This free event features an informative talk about local birds and those just passing through. There’s a nature walk crafts, and kids get to build their own birdhouse. The event runs from 10am to 2pm. Visit their website for more details.
May also sees the arrival of the 2017 Amgen Tour of California Individual Time Trial. The weekend is packed with lots of great events, and your enjoyment of this event can only be enhanced by taking it all in from the home base of your Five Star Vacation Rental cabin or estate. Plan your arrival for Thursday, May 18th and you’ll enjoy some great pre events and meet other cyclists and some of the celebrity guest cyclists.
