Big Bear is typically associated with Southern California's winter paradise. Situated 3-4 hours East of LA County, Big Bear provides everything outdoorsey* hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, resorts, shopping, lakes etc. Be careful when spending money however, as you might learn that resorts tend to be more on the expensive side and not worth it when you can take a car from a local hotel for much less spent each night. The snow is worth it during the winter months, but even during the summer/fall months Big Bear is incredible. Often times it seems to get forgotten (because of the beaches), but the hiking and mountain biking can rival most places and could argue you for top spot in Southern California. Pick your time of the seasons well, when it rains there, it can not be the most of fun. Not the cheapest route to take but if you find yourself in So Cal during the Winter months, give it a shot.
