Review Big Bear Lake
I love living in Big Bear. 4 seasons but not extreme cold or extreme hot. No humidity or mosquitos. Fun lake & skiing & hiking & fishing. Main drawback is it's 100% tourist based so at holidays and weekends, traffic is a nightmare. And, there are a lot of empty weekend houses so not always a sense of "neighborhood". Lastly, the shops are primarily geared at the tourists so not always practical for day to day shopping.
