If you need a break from the natural beauty of Big Bear, skiing, lake activities, hiking, relaxing.... A few hours visit wandering the shops of Pine Knot Village can do the trick. Browsing for tourists, clean environment, restaurants. Nice stroll with friendly shops.

Just be aware that this place survives on tourists. Things are pricey everywhere here. If you just wander the village and keep your wits about buying, its fun
