Big Bear City Area Overview

The roads have low-speed limits and the houses sit like a normal suburban neighborhood, making the area friendly to kids and good for knowing your neighbors. Lots of trees are scattered throughout the area as a reminder that it is in the forested mountains. Some homes have views of the surrounding mountains or some sit along the Big Bear airport for great sky views.

  • Balanced between city and rural
  • Flat terrain and laid out neighborhoods
  • Neighbors around with lots full-time residents
  • Homes with fenced yards to play in
  • Away from tourist crowds

Big Bear City has a rich history of once being a ranching center for cattle, as well as the historic Pan Hot Springs resorts. “Gold Mountain” was named after the gold rush that happened in the late 1800s in Holcomb Valley.

The Peter Pan Woodland club is another major piece of Big Bear City history since the reason behind the community in the area originally came together around the lodge. You’ll find many streets named after the famous story of Peter Pan still in the city. “Peter Pan,” “Wendy,” “Michael,” and “Nana” are just a few that represent the storybook characters.
