More Big Bear Fun During August

In last week’s blog we encouraged you to enjoy some time at Big Bear’s annual Renaissance Faire.  It’s  great fun with lots of food, entertainment, and interesting people.  It’s taking place weekends August 2-3, 9-10 and 16-17.

Our regular Big Bear guests are well aware that there’s always more than just one big thing taking place on the mountain.  Big Bear packs in more fun and scheduled events than you can expect to cover in a single weekend or even a full week.  Here are a few more of the events you can enjoy during your Big Bear stay in August:

Special Cycling Event
Big Bear is one of Southern California’s favorite cycling destinations.  The pristine beauty of the mountain coupled with the cool, clean air make it a great ride.  This year the entire family can enjoy the Big Bear Cycling Festival starting on July 26th and running through August 3rd.  The event aims to combine the best that Big Bear has to offer along with events targeting the entire spectrum of cyclists.  Newbies and casual riders will enjoy the Wellness Slow Ride.  There are also sprints and rides up to 40 miles in length for the seasoned riders.  And nothing will make your enjoyment of these events better than relaxing in one of our Big Bear Vacation Rental cabins and estates at the end of a great day riding.  Check out the full schedule of events at

Hiking Eco-Tours at Snow Summit with the Big Bear Discovery Center
The snow is melted, but Snow Summit still has plenty of beauty to attract your family.  On Thursdays and Fridays throughout August, the Big Bear Discovery Center is offering a guided tour with a local naturalist to learn more about the about the amazing habitat among the pines on Snow Summit.  The tour includes a ride up the chair lift, and you’ll be treated to a 3 hour informative walk.  A box lunch is provided.  If you’re an avid skier, you’ll really want to take the ride up the hill when it’s not covered in snow.  The views from the top of Snow Summit are just amazing, and it’s great fun for all members of your family to learn about the diverse ecosystem of the area. The fee is $45 for 14 and over, $40 for Junior ages 7 – 13.  Visit the Snow Summit website for more info and to reserve your tickets online.
