Big Bear Lake is a fascinating city in San Bernardino County, California, with a magical charm. Once inhabited by the indigenous Indians for over 2,000 years, the area was explored by Benjamin Wilson. Then, what was once populated only by natives and grizzly bears eventually became the lovely city it is today.
The introduction of a bus line from San Bernardino to Big Bear Valley made it possible for villages to grow around the area and for Big Bear Lake to be the first mountain recreation location in Southern California.
