Mini Big Bear Getaway (Day 2)

It snowed while we were taking these pictures & you can tell by my face that I’m super excited about it. I always tell people I’m “selectively outdoorsy.” In my mind that basically means I will go out into the elements for a few hours maybe even the entire afternoon if I’m feeling adventurous but by the end of the day I’ll want: a hot shower, soft bed & warm drink waiting for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried a lot of “outdoorsy” things in my life from ziplining (twice) to parasailing (on our honeymoon, that’s a story in itself!) I have a bit of vertigo, so I feel pretty brave whenever I do something involving heights. I’ve kayaked quite a bit & tubed down a river in Michigan. I’ve gone snorkeling & attempted wake boarding (epic fail.) Hiked to waterfalls & “mud bugged” in Kauai. I can’t say I am particularly good at any of these things but hey I gave it a shot. Okay back to Big Bear!



Places We Visited:

  • Nottinghams Restaurant & Tavern– This is where we met up with our friends after their day on the slopes. Get 10% off your bill when you check in with YELP. I had the biggest burger I have ever seen! Prices are fair & the place is huge! Good spot for a large group. Service is a bit slow but the staff was great.
  • Murray’s Saloon-dive bar but friendly local vibe. Try their “nachos.” They are basic but actually really good because the chips are made to order.
  • North Pole Fudge & Ice Cream Co.– Their fudge was delicious! We also had mint cookies & cream bark. Yum!
  • Broadway Cafe– Neighborhood vibe with lots of bbq options. Their online menu is completely wrong but the food is great. I recommend calling to get an idea of the food options ahead of time. We had mimosas on the patio that were delicious. A must: ordering the cheesy chilli tots. You won’t regret it.
  • Downtown (in general)– Walk along the main drag, grab a coffee, pop into boutiques, bars, restaurants etc…it’s a great way to spend an afternoon or evening if the weather is good.
