11) Big Bear Lake

One hundred miles east of Los Angeles, in the San Bernardino Mountains, lies the city and reservoir of Big Bear Lake. The quaint city, tranquil alpine lake, and the great outdoors is what draws visitors year- round. However, summer is the best time to visit to take advantage of mild temperatures and outdoor activities. Naturists will love the cool, crisp, and peaceful environment of the national forest surrounding the area. Hiking, mountain biking, horse-back riding, boating, and kayaking in a gorgeous natural setting appeases the masses. Pitch a tent or bring your RV and stay a while; Big Bear has plenty of camp sites and RV park options available. The most popular activity is fishing; trout, bass, and catfish are all found here. Remember: While Big Bear boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year, summer temperatures hover in the 60s. So, be sure to bring warm clothes.
