When traveling to Southern California, Big Bear is always a must-see attraction that offers all sorts of adventure, rest and recreation activities and lots of nature. The Big Bear Alpine Zoo is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the largest county in the US and this is because both adults and children alike are sure to find something of great interest in any one or all of the 85 species of birds and animals in the zoo. This animal sanctuary is very accessible from Northwoods Resort, so it’s not hard to add visiting the place in your vacation itinerary.

Big Bear Alpine Zoo is also known formally as Moonridge Animal Park and is located in San Bernardino National Forest. It has been established over fifty years ago as a rehabilitation facility for injured animals. As years passed, the need to keep some of the animals permanently within the care of the zoo has grown because some animals were no longer able to survive out in the wild on their own.

The first animals in the zoo’s care were two bobcats and a black bear. Now, it is home to black bears, grizzly bears, eagles, mountain lions and wolves among others. This safe shelter provides rehabilitation and care for these animals until they are ready to go back to their natural environment. If the animals are no longer able to live on their own, or if they have already imprinted too well on human care, they stay at the zoo, where young and old visitors can enjoy watching them.

Two years ago, the Big Bear Zoo rescued a naughty black bear and named him Pooh. Some of the other bars are Hollybeary, the female bear, Zuni, the oldest bear and Hucklebeary, the three-legged bear who loves cookies. You will also find other animals like badgers, kestrel, owls, chuckwallas, coyotes, deer, snow leopards and mountain lions.

The zoo offers guided tours without additional charge; you just need to pay the admission fee that will be used to benefit the animals and their caretakers. Bring everyone with you and explore Big Bear, especially the zoo, this summer!

The Big Bear, California is a great destination for your summer vacations. There is a lot to see and do for you. If you’ve planned your next trip to this wonderful land, let me tell you some fun things you can enjoy with your family there. Everybody can get there something of his choice. However, if you’re really in search of some specialty superstores, you should consider shopping at ‘The Christmas Mart’ or the ‘Yarn Designers Boutique’ while you’re in the town. You would not come across such shops too often. No matter in what way you prefer passing your time at Big Bear, you are going to enjoy for sure. The splendor of this place is enough to thrill your senses.

Are you ready to trade the beach for ski slopes, log cabins, and fresh mountain air? Well, Big Bear is the place. ⦁    Located in the San Bernardino Mountains, Big Bear is only about a two-hour drive east of L.A.

⦁    Its close proximity to Los Angeles and 75 inches of snow per year makes Big Bear Lake a very popular place to go.

 

⦁    The perfect family-friendly destination with its sunny skies, mountains, year-round activities. ⦁    Though the town has “Big” in its name, it’s rather small. So yes, you can leave your GPS at home.

⦁    Big Bear will win you over with its small town charm. The cobbled streets in the city center known simply as “the village” is filled with small coffee shops, restaurants and other local shops.

 

⦁    Skiers and snowboarders: Hit the slopes which are perfect for newbies and experts alike. ⦁    Careening down mountains isn’t your thing? Ditch the skis and try snowshoeing instead.

⦁    Feeling the need for speed? Try zipping downhill at 45 mph. Of course, you’ll be strapped safely! ⦁    Northwoods Resort is the perfect and ideal place to be for exploring all of Big Bear.
