Things to Do

Big Bear Lake is a great destination for outdoor adventurers and families alike. There’s plenty of adventure to be found from snowboarding and skiing on the mountain slopes, to zip lining through the trees.

For those who prefer calmer activities, check out the Big Bear Discovery Center or explore the shops, restaurants and attractions in town, or fishing in the lake.

If you’re looking for a thrill, take a ride on the Rollercoaster at Magic Mountain or hop on a go-cart track at Big Bear Speedway.

And don’t forget about all of the other activities like hiking, boating, kayaking and paddle boarding – you won’t run out of things to do!

And on Tuesdays from April through September you can head to the Big Bear Farmer’s Market at the Convention Center for some local produce and crafts from local vendors.

Below you’ll find lists of things to do while you’re visiting Big Bear to make your life more covenant.

And in the Restaurant Section, you’ll see that we’ve hand selected restaurants we personally recommend.
