"The Village" seems to have something for everyone. Food, coffee, tourist traps, bars, entertainment, clothing and more. I've come here many years so I've seen changes in the stores though the mainstays continue. For food, there's anything from Italian to BBQ to burgers to salads....More

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.
