Mountain Lake Escape to Big Bear

It will take you less than two hours to take a road trip to Big Bear. Whether you want to camp, spend time on the water or go skiing, the mountain offers everything to enjoy a reprieve from the busy city life. You can race your loved ones on a snowboard or participate in a snowshoe race. They even allow some downhill adventures in a bobsled or toboggan. Enjoy a peaceful hike in the mountain before heading back to the daily grind.

Enjoy the Alps of Southern California at Lake Arrowhead

If you want something slightly closer, you might consider a road trip to Lake Arrowhead. These majestic mountains in the San Bernardino National Forest are one of the best-kept secrets on the West Coast. They are also home to Lake Arrowhead which offers many outdoor activities like snow skiing, fishing, hiking, and backpacking.

You can spend time relaxing in the five-star resort hotel and enjoy a romantic getaway. Watch the wildlife and breathe in the fresh air before making your way back to the city.

Cultural Adventure in Julian
