Three women hiking in Big Bear

Get Outdoors And Enjoy Outdoor Activities

Posted: 05/27/11 | By Daniel

That should be our motto here in the Big Bear Valley: no excuses for not getting outside.

For me this weekend was all about getting out, Friday night entertainment at Nottinghams, outdoor gardening and swinging in the hammock on Saturday, and mountain bike racing at the Team Big Bear event for Sunday. In fact, this past weekend sets a perfect example of what summer weekends are like in Big Bear with a laundry list of activities to choose from:

Team Big Bear Mountain Bike Series Race.

Scenic Sky Chair Open for the summer season.

Big Bear Cycling Association Saturday and Sunday morning community group rides.

Bass Tournament, fishing and lake activities, Both East and West ramps are open!

Open house at Camp Whittle.

Discovery Center and Moonridge Animal Park.

Not to mention all the hiking trails now free of snow and paddling over smooth waters!

This coming weekend is shaping up to be even busier. More community road and mountain bike rides, Big Bear Historical Museum opening for the summer, Sky chair for hiking and biking, Old Time Bear Country Fair at Moonridge Animal Park celebrating wildlife, Citibank car show and pinewood derby, live entertainment (Bob Gulley at Nottinghams in the Village), more hiking and mountain biking, and a community gear swap at North Shore Trading Company. It is sure to be a lively holiday weekend in Big Bear. Plan your days out by checking the calendar: you won't want to miss out on anything!

Hmmm, after reviewing all there is to do I can think of one excuse, you're too tired from playing so hard! But really, rest should be saved for Monday mornings, right?
