"Big Bear or Idlywild in the..." California Favorite Tip by irishileen

California General: 347 reviews and 301 photos

Favorite thing: Big Bear or Idlywild in the San Bernardino mountains is a beautiful place to go. Also, the Beaches around Dana point are well kept. AVOID THE BIG COMMERCIAL TRAPS WHERE MONEY IS THE ONLY OPTION! Get out and enjoy nature. The tram ride up the mountain in Palm Springs is also quite memorable.

Fondest memory: My fondest memory of California is as a child going to the pike on the 4th of July to see the firework show with my father before he passed away. The 'Pike' is no longer there. The Queen Mary is now harbored there as a museum of sorts.
