Spring Romance Trip Ideas

Spring Romantic Getaway

This spring, visit Big Bear for a romantic getaway. Take a hike and experience beautiful mountain and lake views or to see wildflowers and nature or get out on the lake for a peaceful canoeing excursion; either way you are sure to find romance in Southern California's only mountain lake resort.

Trip Ideas:

  • Hiking - A hike together in the forest is always special. See beautiful wildflowers blooming along the trails in spring and summer. 

  • Paddle on the Lake - For a unique view point of Big Bear Lake, paddle in a hidden cover like Grout Bay on a canoe or kayak or try stand-up paddle boarding. Many of Big Bear's local marinas offer paddle activity rentals.

  • Catch a slow ride on the Scenic Sky Chair (Opening Weekends starting April 18, 2014) from the forest floor to the top of Snow Summit to treat your eyes to spectacular panoramic views.

  • Head into the woods for a romantic picnic under the forest canopy.

  • Take a narrated tour aboard the Miss Liberty Paddlewheel Boat to learn about Big Bear's intriguing history. Tours offered on Saturdays, 2 p.m. during the spring months.

  • Sunsets - Sunsets in Big Bear are always best when shared with a loved one. Stroll along the Stanfield Marsh boardwalk or take a sunset horseback ride.

  • Stargazing - The night sky fills up with thousands of stars unspoiled by city lights. Watch shooting stars from your deck and make a wish!

  • Spa & Massage - Enjoy a massage in your cabin rental with one of Big Bear's Relax and Unwind packages or visit one of Big Bear's day spas. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the peace and quite Big Bear has to offer with a relaxing massage.
