Bre here with Goldrush,
Just want to reach out to everyone to let you all know what a beautiful day we have today. The temperature is chilly and crisp with warmer temperatures through out the day. With Fall here all the leaves on our trees are bright reds, oranges and yellows! A sight to behold for sure.
All the critters are gathering up acorns, pine nuts for the upcoming winter, it’s almost as if they know something we don’t.
There’s plenty to do today to enjoy the weather and atmosphere in Big Bear!
Take a walk or ride a bike, stroll through our village and check out all the hand made scarecrows that all the local vendors created and vote for your favorite. Then come back up on Halloween to see who won! The village also offers trick or treating on All Hallows Eve!
Visit the Zoo to see our local animals that have been either hurt or abandoned and nursed back to health by the handlers at our Zoo. Go for a horseback ride at our Baldwin Lake stables and see the scenery from the top of a mountain. Maybe you’re a hiker; well Big Bear has trails for beginners as well as advanced hikers.
Big Bear Discovery Center offers a wealth of knowledge on local plants and animals native to our area. With tree slabs hundreds of years old, a sight to behold for sure. Today they offer knowledge on bats and children can even decorate a bat cookie free of charge.
We here at Goldrush have unique gifts for that hard to buy someone as well as fresh fudge(I love the Rocky Road) yummy. We pan for real gemstones, fossils and even shark teeth that can be up to 500 million years old. You can even find real rubies and emeralds in our ore bags. Break open an exotic geode from an inactive volcano in our custom “Crakin” that even a toddler can use. We promise a fun experience for all ages and it’s inexpensive with our Geodes starting at $3 and our mining ore as cheep as $10.
Come on up to Big Bear for the friendly locals and cool fall temps and see what it like off the beaten path!

Looking Forward To Seeing You,
