Outdoor Getaway in Big Bear
Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead are known as wintertime retreats, but during the summer, these mountain getaways are fantastic for water sports, hiking, biking, and just relaxing. The skies are crystal blue, and the air is clean and scented with pine and sage. Temperatures hover around 80 degrees, which is downright perfect compared to parts of L.A. at the height of summer. While both areas have their own charm, Big Bear is more popular because it's larger, with more to do around the lake and the main part of town, simply known as The Village. The other great reason to visit off-season: You'll find plenty of bargains. Here are a few tips for a weekend around the lake and beyond. – By Lesley Balla
