Choosing When to Visit

The first step in planning your romantic getaway to Big Bear is to choose the right time to visit. Big Bear offers something special in every season.

For a classic cozy experience, visit during the winter months when the mountains are blanketed in snow. You can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, or simply snuggle up by the fireplace in a charming cabin.

Spring brings beautiful blooms and milder weather, making it an ideal time for outdoor activities like hiking and biking. You can also explore the local shops and eateries.

Summer is perfect for water sports on Big Bear Lake, such as boating, paddleboarding, and kayaking. The warm weather and clear skies are ideal for hiking and picnics.

The fall foliage in Big Bear is a sight to behold. The changing leaves make for a romantic backdrop for hiking and outdoor adventures. Plus, you can enjoy fewer crowds and cooler temperatures.

You really can’t go wrong with a Big Bear visit, so just take some time to consider the ambience you want to enjoy and what works best with your schedule. While Spring and Fall are the less busy times of year, all seasons are a beautiful time to visit.
