Love to shop here.... handy restaurants, furniture store, curio shops, clothing shops, even a quilt shop. It's got it all. Some newer parking lots have helped out with the parking.

I am a Big Bear Local and try to get to the Village whenever I can! They have the best shops and people! Christmas time is magical in the Village and summertime is cool and beautiful.

Last here May 2016. Been here dozens of times over the years so have seen it grow and became better and better. There is a theater we go to. There a nice coffee shop we like to go to and candy shop we always stop by for a treat. Always seems like something new and also are old favorites.

Wonderful fudge etc... in several sweet shops. Nice to walk around for a while, too small for a whole day. One building had twenty individual stores, everyone had a different theme, kids enjoyed all... More

This is just where you go when you're up in Big Bear. It's a spider web of streets with lots of little shops and restaurants. They have also installed these large heating areas where you can go stand and warm yourself up on the way to your favorite spot. It pretty much has everything, coffee, food, bars, etc. There's also... More

I spent a few days in Big Bear Lake at some cabins right down the road.. the Village is within walking distance.. full of shops and restaurants, something for everyone. I was here on "off-time", meaning most of the traffic happens at the end of the week thru the weekend. I chose Tuesday and Wednesday to stroll the Village.. it... More

The best time to visit the village in Big Bear is winter when the lights are on the trees for holiday time and the covered horse drawn carriages are in motion!
