Big Bear, CA

Creative Brief

It was a pleasure to experience this beautiful destination high in the San Bernardino Mountains and meet with the talented staff of the Big Bear Visitor's Bureau. Thank you to Darien Schaefer, Eddie Kirsch, and Monique Rangel for hosting us and kicking off this exciting new project with our creative team. 

I definitely recommend checking out The Discovery Center (shown above with Gregg, Mike, and Jenny) for an immersive and educational overview of Big Bear's natural environment and history. 

Here are a few more inspiring sights and travel tips that we picked up along the way:

Beautiful vistas on the drive up to Big Bear.
Family-friendly hiking and outdoor activities at The Discovery Center.

If you go . . . 

  • The Discovery Center is a must-see where you can learn about nature and environmental stewardship, pan for gold, or catch a show at the outdoor amphitheater! Kids will love the interactive activities available in the nature center.
  • We stopped by Big Bear Lake Brewing Company, which is a fun spot for pub food and locally-brewed beers. Try the fried avocado!
  • After a day of outdoor adventure, Saucy Mama’s Pizzeria is the perfect place to enjoy lunch or takeout.
  • Head to Murray’s Saloon for a friendly late-night spot (especially if you like karaoke).
  • If you're looking for stick-to-your-ribs grub in the morning, then Grizzly Manor Cafe is a must. The pancakes are enormous and delicious.
