What to do in Big Bear Lake | July 23 – July 29, 2012

Celebrating the past in Big Bear Lake and looking to the future

Pacific Coast Trail View
Gorgeous views of California abound on the Pacific Coast Trail

Big Bear Lake has a long and distinct past, one that we love to celebrate and keep relevant to the visitors and people who live here. Since the 1850’s, when Bear Valley was first looked on by explorers (but not the natives who lived here), Big Bear Lake has had a unique call to adventurers, explorers, and people looking to leave their cares for a while.  We’ve explored the ancient history of Big Bear in this blog post so check that out first if you’d like. Then, come celebrate the rich history of the West in Big Bear this weekend and enjoy the majesty of its outdoors and the future of some of the wildlife. It looks to be a great week!

This Week at Big Bear Lake

Trail Fest 2012

The Pacific Crest Trail runs from Canada to Mexico, and offers a diverse range of ecosystems and climates, from high mountain passes to desert paths. This weekend, July 27th – 29th,  at Trail Fest 2012 you can attend classes, meet new people and learn about the continuous efforts to help promote and protect this majestic trail. Walk-in registration is still available. There is even an opportunity Friday night to meet and chat with the authors of The Pacific Crest Trailside Reader!

Big Bear History comes alive!

This year’s historical figure for the Friends of the Big Bear Library and Chautauqua History Alive program is Zane Grey, the man who almost single-handedly created the American Western genre of literature. The show will be at 7 PM at the Summit Christian Fellowship Church, and will be performed by David Fenimore. This is a great opportunity to learn a little more about how the West was built, and how Zane Grey’s work helped develop how we see the American West today! And best of all, it is a free event!

Blues at the Moonridge Zoo

Do you have your tickets for this year’s Blues for the Zoo concert on August 4th? There is an outstanding line up of bands headlined by C.J. Chenier, “the heir to the Zydeco throne, an unparalleled party starter”, according to Billboard! You will be able to experience an assortment of delicious food and local products at the concert. Getting your tickets in advance will also help you save a little money. It is a wonderful experience to help support our friends at the Big Bear Alpine Zoo!

We would also like to wish Big Bear’s athlete Ryan Hall good luck in his bid for Olympic gold as a marathoner in London!

While you are here in the present, we have plenty of comfortable rooms for you to stay in. We even have an online reservation system so you can easily make plans to visit us. We are very pet friendly and in walking distance to the Village. Have a great week!
