Inland Empire California Visitor Information

Lake Arrowhead / Big Bear

For a see-and-do alpine tour featuring stunning vistas as well as abundant recreational opportunities, travel the aptly named Rim of the World Scenic Highway in the forested San Bernardino Mountains.

Visit the Lake Arrowhead communities to dine, shop, and enjoy art galleries. Board the Arrowhead Queen excursion boat to view a landscape of charming, alpine-style waterfront homes. In Blue Jay, visit the Ice Castle, an Olympic training facility.

You’ll find Big Bear Lake at 7,000 feet elevation. The lakeside resort communities here offer year-round recreation-boating, jet skiing, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, skiing, and other snow sports. If you have children, be sure to visit Santa’s Village, a theme park in Skyforest. Also, walk the nearby nature trail at Heap’s Peak Arboretum. Follow the scenic highway to Barton Flats, on the edge of the San Gorgonio Wilderness, for a picnic, and later stretch your legs on the fascinating San Bernardino Peak Loop Trail.
