How to Plan the Perfect Anniversary Trip in Big Bear – Whether it’s your twentieth wedding anniversary or it’s been six months since making your relationship official, celebrating a special occasion is always the right choice. If you want to plan the perfect anniversary trip, we have two ideal romantic mountain cabins to choose from and a list of tips to make sure this getaway is one you will never forget.
How to Plan the Perfect Anniversary Trip in Big Bear
There are so many ways to enjoy the mountains and the lake in Big Bear. Rent a canoe for a romantic paddle on the lake, take a hike through the crisp mountain air, or wander through the beautiful flowers at Baldwin Lake Ecological Reserve or Bluff Lake Reserve. Bluff Lake Reserve was the location of the original The Parent Trap movie, and is a breathtakingly beautiful location. At Baldwin Lake, the Pebble Plains showcase small but mighty wildflowers, a rare habitat found only in Big Bear.
Dine on the Lake
No matter the season, The Pines Lakefront is the perfect place to enjoy an elegant, celebratory meal. With views of sparkling Big Bear Lake and both indoor and outdoor dining, it is a memorable location that has been a local favorite for years. Getting dressed up for a meal at a special restaurant is the perfect addition to your romantic anniversary getaway.
Take Your Time at Breakfast
Big Bear has many favorite breakfast spots, and a special anniversary trip is the perfect time to try them out. With no kids to rush you out of bed, you can roll in late and take your time sipping your coffee and reminiscing. One of our favorite breakfast spots is Grizzly Manor Cafe, a local favorite and award-winning mountain diner with a menu featuring classic American breakfast food like french toast, hash browns, eggs, or massive pancakes so big they can barely fit on the plate.
Experts agree that couples who have fun together are more satisfied with their relationships and more capable of weathering the tough seasons. Get outside in Big Bear and play together, by exploring on a hike, taking a boat out on the lake, or hitting the slopes.
Reminisce and Set Goals
An anniversary is the perfect time to look back with fondness and look forward with enthusiasm. Cozy up in front of the fireplace or bring a glass of wine out to the hot tub, and share your favorite memories and hopeful goals. When life gets busy, it’s easy to lose track of why you’re together in the first place. An anniversary trip is the perfect time to remind yourself.
If you’re feeling stuck, here are some questions to get your started:
- What is something new you learned about me this year?
- When did you laugh the hardest this year?
- Is there anything new we tried this year that you loved more than you thought you would?
- What kind of life do you hope we lead ten years from now?
- Is there anywhere you’ve always dreamed of traveling together?
- What is something new you want to learn together?
