Last here May 2016. Been here dozens of times over the years so have seen it grow and became better and better. There is a theater we go to. There a nice coffee shop we like to go to and candy shop we always stop by for a treat. Always seems like something new and also are old favorites.

One building had twenty individual stores, everyone had a different theme, kids enjoyed all... More

I spent a few days in Big Bear Lake at some cabins right down the road.. the Village is within walking distance.. full of shops and restaurants, something for everyone. I was here on "off-time", meaning most of the traffic happens at the end of the week thru the weekend. I chose Tuesday and Wednesday to stroll the Village.. it... More

We went there to walk around and look at the shops we were very happy to be able to bring out dog they have water and baggies for your pet. We got some jelato and people watch for a few mins it's also a good walking distance down to the park and the lake.

great fudge shop with ice cream. The town was a little sleepy but this street was alive and well. Check the city website -- we found $5 Movie Tuesday and there are several great restaurants within walking distance
