A lot of people are yearning for a vacation. People take the time in planning on where to go and what to do during their vacation. Most if not all the time, when we talk about going on a vacation we always associate it with the perfect time we can spend with our family and friends. However, was there a point in your life when you decided to go on a vacation alone? Yes, you read it right, go on a vacation or break alone. Sounds interesting right, but at the back of your mind a voice is saying “No one goes on a vacation alone!”

The thought of going on a cruise or checking – in on a resort/hotel doesn’t sound interesting for some, but there will come a point in our lives where we just wanted to be alone, sit and stare blankly in the horizon. No one to think of except yourself and you will not go through the hassle in creating a planned out activity for your family or friends.

When you go on a vacation solo, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are lonely or depressed. Going on a trip alone is also rewarding and important for our well being. Let us take a deeper look on the importance and reasons for going on a break on your own. Travelling alone means being more self – reliant and responsible. You have planned out the destination, decided on where to stay and carried all the things you needed for your vacation and you did it all by yourself. Give yourself a tap on the back, you deserve it.

When you travel alone you teach yourself that it is ok to go out of your comfort zone. This leads to self – discovery. As you take and experience things all by yourself, it sets you the time to understand and learn more about the things you like, dislike and activities you enjoy.Going on a vacation alone also gives you the opportunity to meet new people. A lot of people might see this as an unpopular thing to do when you are on a vacation, but it is a worthy experience to meet new people and extend your circle of friends. It is not easy to start a conversation with a complete stranger, but if you successfully do it, it means that you were also able to build your self confidence.

As you travel alone you become more conscious on how you budget your money. This is a great way for you to learn about proper budgeting. Some people say that traveling alone is cheaper and some say it is more expensive, but what is important is that you learn how to be frugal and enjoy your time within your budget. You also feel that sense of accomplishment when you go on a vacation alone. If you are afraid of riding an airplane or public transport alone, then this is a good time to tell yourself that you can do it. Keep in mind that you will do things and make decisions on your own with no one to tell you what to do. That is a radical way of experiencing a different level of being accomplished.

The best part of all these is that you decide to take the plunge, enjoy the opportunity to understand the other side of you and other capabilities you have.
Live life and enjoy!

Big Bear is a famous summer vacation destination because there are many fun activities to do around the area while the sun is out and the weather is just perfect. The top activities are:

Fishing

There is an abundant supply of different fishes in Big Bear Lake that makes fishing a favorite activity in the summer. The cool alpine lake is very accessible from the many resorts around the area so you can come for a weekend, stay at a nice resort like Northwoods Resort and go up to the lake to enjoy a day of fishing. Catch a rainbow trout or find a largemouth bass. You can rent a boat at the marina or hire a licensed fishing guide to take you to the best fishing spots in the lake.

Hiking

Hiking and walking for all levels can be done in the trails surrounding Big Bear Lake. Experienced hikers can go for an adventure hike to get a view of the scenic backdrop from atop. If you’re hiking with kids, there are friendlier trails you can conquer. Hiking is a very popular activity here and you should make sure to try it so you don’t miss some of the most beautiful spots that will take your breath away.

Boating and other watersports

When it comes to watersports and boating, Big Bear Lake has it all. From waterskiing to kayaking, parasailing to jet skiing, the 23 miles of shoreline offers a lot of space for water fun. Rent a motorboat or a yacht and spend a day at the lake relaxing, eating and drinking.

Biking

Professional bikers come to Big Bear to practice biking, but this doesn’t mean you can’t take on the trails if you’re not a pro. Rent a bike by the lake and hoose a biking trail of your level to discover off the beaten path spots, challenging peaks and rolling scenes.

Zipline

Fly through the air like a bird stretching its wings to experience freedom and thrill. Ziplining in Big Bear is another famous activity, and not only during the summer. If you need an adventure rush, zipline across rocky canyons and over amazing landscapes for the thrill of your life. Surely, this will be an unforgettable experience of fun.
