Big Bear Fall Travel Tips
Planning for a fall vacation to Big Bear Lake is quite different from packing for a summer trip. You could just throw in a couple of shorts and a swimsuit and be on your way to your dream destination if it was in the summer. While trips in the fall and winter to Big Bear are amazing, they also require a little extra care and planning. Here is our helpful Travel Tips to help you be prepared for your Big Bear Fall weather trip. Here’s what you should know about traveling smart and planning a Big Bear Lake trip this fall season.
Packing for a Big Bear Fall Trip
Having a good suitcase is just as important as having the right essentials with you on your winter trips. Having a hard-shelled suitcase is the perfect choice as it will help you adjust all your bulky sweaters and long pants. It gets COLD in the fall at night! All the while, those bulky clothing items can help in protecting fragile items like your perfumes or watches. We supply a set amount of supplies based on your house occupancy so bringing that special favorite blanket never hurt for cuddle season! We also suggest bringing nice thick socks and a beanie or scarf. The winds are high this time of year and you’ll want to protect your ears and necks from taking the brunt of the autumn winds.
Always Be Prepared: Fall Weather Tips
Keep in mind that if you plan fun activities like hiking or biking, you will need extra warm clothes to keep you warm on your adventures. In addition, check the weather reports prior to coming up the mountain. Big Bear Lake gets flash floods often, so a raincoat and waterproof shoes might need to be in your luggage. You should also add a good pair of sunglasses, sunscreen, medicines, and toiletries with you so that you are ready to face almost any situation during your adventurous activities. We are miles closer to the sun up here in Big Bear Lake and even on a cloudy day the sun is strong enough to burn you.
