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!

great fudge shop with ice cream. The town was a little sleepy but this street was alive and well. Check the city website -- we found $5 Movie Tuesday and there are several great restaurants within walking distance

Of course, this street has their tourist traps, but there are also hidden gems of shops that you can only find here. It's a scenic walk, and lots of places for pets to stop. Shops are very pet friendly, and those that aren't simply aren't...More

Great shops, live music inside and out, good places to eat, drink, shop for kitsch and generally enjoy the SoCal mountain vibe in a laid back atmosphere. Tiny compared to Mammoth and other destination mountains, so don't expect the Vail experience. Great for families, well...More

This is a really cute little area but most of it was closed during the week. Most were open on Friday and Saturday. Nice places to eat and souvenir shop.

"The Village" seems to have something for everyone. Food, coffee, tourist traps, bars, entertainment, clothing and more. I've come here many years so I've seen changes in the stores though the mainstays continue. For food, there's anything from Italian to BBQ to burgers to salads....More
