All shops we visited were pet friendly. Fun place to walk around and shop. Prices excellent. Parking convenient to all shops. Many nice restaurants to choose from. Great place to spend an afternoon while visiting Big Bear.

If you need a break from the natural beauty of Big Bear, skiing, lake activities, hiking, relaxing.... A few hours visit wandering the shops of Pine Knot Village can do the trick. Browsing for tourists, clean environment, restaurants. Nice stroll with friendly shops.

So warm and friendly love the fire pits around the village sit by them and enjoy a cup of coffee. Nicely decorated for x-mas. They have thought of everything. In front of the Copper Q they even have a bike fixing station. with air and all the tools.

This is what I would term the upscale downtown area of Big Bear. Plenty of small shops---mostly touristy stuff, but a few nice galleries and higher-end clothing and local art shops. A cute little movie theater is also here, several coffee shops, and many restaurants and a candy store. Good place to just hang out for a few hrs, grab... More

Love the Village. The City has made it real nice now. The sidewalks are heated for the winter to melt the snow and you will see fire pits all around that are awesome and it is a lovely lovely walk. A little concerned about the Clydesdales horses they have there for rides though. the horses look soooo bored and tired.... More
