Big Bear Picture

Located on a green valley of the San Bernardino Mountains and rich with four unique seasons of natural splendor, it's no wonder that the area today known as Big Bear Lake has been admired for thousands of years. It's also no wonder that to this day it remains one of the hottest vacation destinations in all of California.

This is the place where lush landscapes of the mountains are springing to new life with magnificent greenery, rich colorful blossoms, migratory birds, and other diverse wildlife. Pine trees are sprouting new shades of green, the skies are deep blue and the wildflowers are absolutely brilliant! In fact, Big Bear Lake is the west coast version of Colorado Springs, located in close proximity to Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and Palm Springs.

Big Bear Lake, California received its striking name by Benjamin Davis Wilson, an outstanding California statesman and advocate of Native American rights, who was surprised to come across an immense grizzly bear population. While Wilson only found bears, many Southern California prospectors found something else entirely: gold.

The discovery of gold in Big Bear Lake around 1860 resulted in the hugest gold rush in the state's history, and for some time Big Bear was the latest, greatest boomtown. Shops, restaurants and hotels were built, and by 1949 Big Bear was one of the top ski resorts in Southern California.

Even though the gold rush is long gone, a great number of people from the whole world still come to Big Bear all year-long. If not for the incredible snow sports, hiking, bird watching and boating, many people visit just for the glorious lush scenery. Hollywood, for instance, often filmed in Big Bear Valley. The famous musical "Paint Your Wagon" as well as "The Parent Trap" and episodes of "Bonanza" were all filmed here.
