At about 3pm yesterday, we announced that summer is officially here. We didn’t use those exact words; the actual words we used would be best left unrepeated. But that was the moment we realized the air conditioning in our car was struggling to keep up with the heat beating down on us while we were parked on our favorite freeway. This uncomfortable moment arrives about this same time each year, and lasts for the several months of summer until things start cooling down a bit. We shouldn’t really complain because we have it much better than most folks, and so can you. You can abandon the heat and pressure of the city freeways to join us in the cool, refreshing, and relaxing atmosphere in Big Bear. And July is the perfect time to plan this short trek.
We still have a few vacancies available for the July 4th weekend, so be sure to call us right away if you’d like to grab one of them. As we’ve mentioned in recent blogs, the Big Bear annual fireworks display is one of the best you can see anywhere. Combine this great display with a stay in one of our luxury vacation rentals, and it has the makings of a perfect weekend getaway.
One of our favorite spots in Big Bear is the Discovery Center. They’ve packed their July schedule with a bunch of fun and informative events. Here’s just a sampling of the fun you can enjoy: Each Friday, head over to the Center at about 7pm for a campfire presentation that will have you learning some of the more quirky history of the region. On Saturday, July 5th, head over to the Discovery Center at 10am, and you can choose between building your own birdhouse, or trying your hand at gold panning. The gold panning is always at the top of our list. Every Saturday and Sunday, you can head over for their weekend nature walks. These weekly guided walks are not strenuous, and you’ll learn a bunch about the local history and flora. We highly recommend it.
If you’re in the mood for a relaxing getaway elsewhere, be sure to check out the rest of our properties in Park City, Southern California Beaches, Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, and Mammoth Mountain. We realize that you get very little vacation time each year, so we’re dedicated to ensuring that your time spent in one of our luxury rentals will be a great value for you and your family. Call us today at 310-780-3411, and we’ll help you plan the vacation of a lifetime.
