Here Comes Autumn!!


Ahhhh .... Autumn!  The colors of the leaves, the smell of fall in the air, the crisp cool nights and mornings, the smell of someone's fire place burning off in the distance.  All signs of the coming season.  One of  our most favorite times of the year!!  Yes, the East Coast does have some awesome areas of Fall colors, but so does Big Bear!  The oak trees, the aspens and other trees all add to the festive aura that comes with the changing of the leaves.  Oh, and let's not forget our annual Oktoberfest that is celebrated on weekends during September and October!

Yes, Autumn in Big Bear is a great time to come and visit!  There are also less crowds, the lake is still open for boating, jet skiing, other favorite lake related activities and of course, fishing!  The bike and hiking trails are still open and waiting!  The days are warm ... come on ... let's go for a hike to the top of Castle Rock, view the turning leaves from the top of the world!
