Still looking for the perfect holiday gift? Head to The Village in Big Bear where you can shop big and support small.
Enjoy strolling the colorful and charming streets while supporting a variety of local shops. You can find everything from boutique clothing shops to cooking and kitchen supplies, athletic apparel, unique art, handcrafted jewelry, souvenirs, and more! Whether you’re ready to do some serious shopping, or just browse the shops, The Village is the perfect place to spend an afternoon.
The Village is bustling all year long. Beautifully manicured planters show off their vibrant blooms, and bright green trees line the streets, providing shade to shoppers during the spring and summer. In fall, the San Bernadino Valley backdrop is bursting with autumnal hues of yellow, orange, and crimson, and wintertime turns The Village into a winter wonderland with twinkling holiday lights.

Looking for a Place to Do Some Sipping After Shopping?
Located conveniently in The Village, Barrel 33 is a local favorite spot to sit back, relax, and toast to the mountain life. This family-owned wine bar offers beer, cider, wine, hard seltzers, and non-alcoholic options. They also serve several small plates to choose from – perfect to pair with a glass of wine from their own exclusive label. We love their charcuterie platter and burrata prosciutto flatbread. Everything is first come first serve, so no reservations are needed. Pups are welcome, too!
