August in Big Bear: Biking, Hiking, Fairing, and Zooing

August in Big Bear is just plain packed with too much to do.  Once you get a look at all the fun we have in store, you’ll be calling us and asking for a monthly rate on your Five Star Vacation Rental cabin or estate.  No kidding, there really is something for everyone all month long.  Here’s just a glimpse at the upcoming events:

We devoted last week’s blog to the upcoming Renaissance Faire.  That will run weekends August 1-2, 8-9, and 15-16.  Follow this link for details. Prepare to have the time of your life.

The 2015 Tour de Big Bear is scheduled for August 1.  There are 25, 50, 70, and 100 mile courses offered, and it’s a great event for the serious cyclist.  Check out this link for the course details, so you can choose the one that best fits your skill and fitness level.  Each course is well marked, and hydration points are available along the way.  It’s a great opportunity to enjoy cycling through the beautiful Big Bear surroundings.

The Big Bear Discovery Center offers weekend nature walks that are always popular with families.  The hikes are easy, and offer frequent stops to learn about the beautiful plants and wildlife that surround us in the Big Bear.  You’ll also gain some great insights into the history of our region.

Plan a visit to the Big Bear Alpine Zoo to enjoy their annual Ice Cream Safari on August 1. As you all know, ice cream goes with virtually anything, and we can think of no better mix than ice cream and wild animals. This annual event is always a big hit, and a chance for the family to take in a yummy treat while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo.
