Most people go Big Bear's ski resorts in the winter, but it's also beautiful in the summer. It's a great day trip or for just a quick overnighter. The lake is beautiful and many people do water sports here. I only went an overnighter so I didn't have much time to do water sports. However, the community is great. There are local pubs, restaurants, and great people you could mingle with. Whether they were a local or just another visitor, I had great conversations with them. A quick and fun getaway place.

Be sure to wear clothes that you feel you can get dirty and you need to wear long pants so you don't get hurt. I'm a bit of an adrenaline-junkie, but to be honest I was a bit scared when I was on this course (my friends weren't). It might be me slowly becoming a scared-cat. The course is beautiful because you're up on the trail where you can the landscape. It was an amazing view, but scary for me at the same time because I was scared that I would fall off the trail. There's also a lot of motorcycle riders and its really cool to see them on the trail.
