Celebrating an anniversary with your partner is well worth the time and effort, whether it’s a wedding anniversary or another special moment you want to commemorate. Even though it can be challenging to set aside the time in your busy life to pause, reflect, and celebrate, you know you won’t regret it.
Planing an anniversary getaway and not sure where to start? Consider Big Bear, a convenient drive from anywhere in Southern California that offers a total change in scenery and plenty to do. Whether you want a relaxing, cozy celebration where you barely leave your vacation rental or an adventurous weekend of exploring in Big Bear, we’ve got the perfect place to stay.

When to Visit
Some couples prefer to celebrate the anniversary on the exact date they are celebrating, while others would rather plan a trip based on other factors. Consider when you would like to visit Big Bear to help you decide. There’s something to enjoy about the charming mountain town during all four seasons.
In the spring, flowers begin to bloom in the meadows and along the hiking paths. You can still enjoy the crisp mountain mornings and it’s chilly enough to light a fire, but you won’t be totally bundled up if you want to explore. Summertime features warm enough temps to fully embrace Big Bear Lake, where you can fish or take a boat out on the water to take in the beautiful views. In the fall, it’s hard to exaggerate the beauty of the changing colors. The cool morning and evenings are a refreshing change from heat the rest of Southern California will still be experiencing, but snow likely won’t be falling yet. Big Bear also shines in the winter, with multiple winter sports opportunities to enjoy together.
There’s no bad time to visit Big Bear.
How to Celebrate
We know every couple has their own favorite ways to celebrate or unwind on a getaway, and Big Bear has something for everyone. Our concierge service can help you set up whatever you need, including getting lift tickets at the ski resort or delivering groceries so you can cook your favorite meal together. We can also suggest a favorite place to eat out or grab drinks in Big Bear.
Stuck on what to do? Divide the responsibility up between the two of you. Have each person take one day and plan what to do. Some of our favorite ideas for a meaningful and romantic trip are:
- Bring photos from your wedding or life together to look at together
- Pack some 2-person board games so you can cozy up by the fire and enjoy some competition
- Recreate the meal you served at your wedding reception of a favorite date night
- Try a new food together at one of the restaurants in town
- Take a hike and reminisce together
- Write a letter to each other to open on your next anniversary
- Learn a new sport or skill together, like skiing, fishing, or mountain biking
Don’t miss an opportunity to invest in your relationship. You will never regret setting aside the time to celebrate the life you have built together.
