Big Bear Lake

PALM SPRINGS

To the uninitiated, Palm Springs
tends to mean three things:
palm trees, swimming pools,
and mid-century modern. Sure, you can spend a fabulous weekend
shopping for Eames chairs or sipping tiki drinks from your chaise lounge.
But sooner or later you'll feel the urge to explore. (The desert does that.)
Stroll through the Palm Springs Art Museum's mix of contemporary and
modern paintings, sculpture, and art glass. Visit Moorten's Botanical
Garden, a family-owned cactus Shangri-la planted with 3,000-plus
specimens. Go for a hike in the Indian Canyons, where streams tumble
down from the San Jacinto Mountains and bighorn sheep clatter across
the hillsides. At day's end, take your pick from Palm Springs' primo
restaurants-an ever-evolving food scene offers countless choices-
then splash into your hotel pool for a late-night swim.

A hundred miles east of Los
Angeles, Big Bear Lake has
elevation with beneļ¬ts. At 6,750
feet, summer temps are 20
degrees cooler than the inland
valleys, making ideal weather for
mountain-getaway fun. When
the sun scorches, it's all about
the lake. Leap off granite boulders near China Island, hang out
at sandy McDill Swim Beach,
take a cruise on the Miss Liberty
Paddleboat, or rent a kayak
and go paddling. In winter, ski,
snowboard, and snow-tube at
Bear Mountain and Snow Summit resorts. Year-round, browse
the shops in Big Bear Village's
stroll-able downtown, eat momo
dumplings and curries at the
Himalayan Restaurant, or visit
the chainsaw artist at Kirby's
Custom Carvings and take
home a smiling wooden bear.
