A definite tourist attraction with lots of trendy restaurants and boutique type shops. However, you can see that the weak economy and the drought are taking their toll from the number of closed and failing locations. Still, we enjoyed wandering through the shops and browsing.

We like the expanded village. I can't say we bought very much, but it wasn't for lack of trying. We just couldn't find what we were looking for. That said, it's always fun to browse.

Nice flowers and interesting shops, but only spent 5 minutes looking around. Lady in the Visitor centre was very helpful printing out coupons for us.

The Village is a really cool spot to go walking. There are little shops of antiques, leather goods, ice cream, etc. it is very laid back and charming. Several food spots with everything from Indian, to Italian, to Steaks. Spend an hour or two cruising around.

Quaint little Village is the hub of foot traffic, shopping and entertainment in Big Bear Lake. Many small shops to stroll at your leisure. Selection and quality of merchandise however is rather tired and appears old and in need of refreshing. Wide range of restaurants and ethnic flavors.

If you're looking for souvenirs than this is where you want to be. Almost every other store is a gift shop. There's also a few antique stores, some art galleries, candy shops, gelato, several restaurants, a few bars, a movie theater and stores with just random knick knacks. There's plenty of places to park your car. I think the high... More

While the village is beautiful and the nightlife is a lot of fun. Found out disappointing that the next day nearly all of the shops were closed because of MLK holiday. Just seems a resort seasonal place would have everything open on a holiday weekend when everyone comes up there

We love walking through the village, especially in the winter. They recently redid the sidewalks so there are now fire pits and plenty of benches to sit at. Our favorite thing to do is grab dinner in the village and then walk to the fudge shop for some fudge or ice cream. Yum!
