Make sure you book your vacation rental in Big Bear Lake early to get the best location for watching the fireworks and having fun in The Village.  Lakefront cabin rentals in Big Bear Lake are the premier spot for all the fun, especially close to Pine Knot Marina where the show will take place out on the water.  The largest cabin rentals sleep up to 16 people or have a more private getaway and have everyone rent their own smaller cabin.  Find your cabin HERE

Avoid the North Shore

It’s true that the north shore has a great, unobstructed view of the fireworks show, but the trip back to your Big Bear cabin rental can be a hassle and can take over an hour to get back to the other side of the lake.  If you choose to venture out, plan ahead and pack comfortable chairs and prepare to leave before the show ends, or hang out on the beach for awhile and let the traffic subside.

 

Bring a Warm Coat

The days are warm but the nights are chilly, especially down by the water.  Make sure you bring along a blanket and warm coat to make the evening comfortable and pleasant.  You won’t be able to get a good view from your car, so be ready to enjoy the fresh mountain air.

Plan Your Grocery Shopping
