Book Now

You'll appreciate this refreshing escape from city life when you travel with us to Big Bear Lake, a charming mountain community nestled in the beautiful pine forests atop the San Bernardino Mountains. Spectacular scenery surrounds you as the motor coach winds its way up the scenic Rim of the World Highway into green woodlands and clean mountain air. Enjoy an afternoon of relaxation in the Bavarian-style village where you’re free to discover the enchanting town and grab lunch at your leisure. Then, meet your Tour Manager and fellow travelers back at the coach to be transported to Pine Knot Landing for a 90-minute narrated cruise aboard the Miss Liberty, where you’ll learn about Big Bear Lake's rich history, insightful facts and folklore, celebrity homes, and much more. Don't miss this fun alpine refresher! Note: This tour encounters elevations up to 7,000 feet.
