If you are planning a getaway for Thanksgiving with your family, we suggest spending Thanksgiving weekend in Big Bear Lake this year. Big Bear Lake is the most popular spot in Southern California to see autumn's beauty in November, and it is a great spot to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Things To Do in Big Bear During Thanksgiving Break 2020
Get dressed in your best turkey, bear, or autumn costume, and go for a walk in the village and check out the shops or grab a coffee at a local eatery or a coffee shop.
Take the kids snow tubing. Snow play is geared for kids of all ages. Big Bear has two snow play fun parks: The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, just west of Big Bear Village, and Big Bear Snow Play, which is located on the east end of Big Bear Blvd. Snow tubing areas are also open for night tubing on Fridays and Saturdays.
