First. San Bernardino being the largest county in the nation. Is on slow path to recovery. Check out all SB's western cities (chino, upland, Ontario, rancho Alta loma etc.) they started out roural, then ghetto, and are now upscale honkey towns!
The city of SB, had to start over after the base closed, right now it's being redeveloped, if you can bring your honkey arse down and take a look, you will see block after block of houses red tagged for demolishion. There are plans to restore the lake, and build parks, all the things "YOUR" people like.
None of this would be possible without ghetto people's beer taxes.

i'm speaking the truth about the majority of the people who live on my street/area in big bear lake. i guess i'm a honkey who does not like skin heads and white trash and any color of low lifes! hand outs exploit others or "scum" and keep them down. it's hard to appreciate things and have pride if you do not earn it. so darkkewlz you can feel free to work hard, earn money and send it in to the government to redistribute and hand out to the lazy.

Turn back the clock to the 1800s, and before.. when people were starving in the streets, Sure there are people that abuse the system, but it's better to suffer the loss associated with lazy bumbs, than to have good people starving to death.
We work and pay taxes so we can live better than them, If their lifestyle was good, no one would work. Also, have you looked around, lots of good people dont have jobs due to the economy, not because they are lazy.. i guess you would have them homeless in the streets too!

As for SkinHeads, Few Like or agree with them. But this is America, and part of what makes it great is that people (even ignorant ones) have freedom to express themselves as they see fit.
Furthermore, to dislike any group or individual is to be a bigot. Regardless if those you are predjudice against are an unfavorable group.
I suggest you move to Maine.
I’m disgusted with you. Hatred is hatred, it’s people like you that is the real problem!

Big Bear, is a great place, Nice friendly people, clean air, great views. Lots of trees, generally a nice place to live.
Yes there are poor folks, and borderline hillbillies. But they are friendly and dont bite.
It's the only place in So-California, where everyone speaks, and is courteous, and respectful (except while driving).
If you cant afford to live in Malibu, then Big Bear is the next best thing.
Thing I like most, I haven’t once been asked for change. Big Bear isn’t perfect. But tell me where is?
I haven't seen any skinheads, or mexican gangs. As a black man, i haven't experianced any racial issues.
The worst person(s)in Big Bear, is the fool(s) writing all the garbage in this thread.
I hope they find their utopia, and leave Big Bear.

Yes people! Time to redistribute the wealth.

No matter if you can spell, have an education, or know what a paragraph is! It's your duty as a citizen to give up 33% of your income to someone that did not necessarily pay attention in school and is burdened with two kids by the time they were seventeen!

You can always move to another country, Don't act like there is anything super special about america that you cant find in another country. one that doesn't take care of it's poor, one where the only tax you pay is to your drug lord president.

Well, we were stupidly taken by the beauty of the mountains and moved there to discover: Many people are short on cash, thought and humor; There is absolutely nothing to do; You will regrettably know the details of everybody's sordid affairs after one lonely week; The locals have little of worth, secretly gloating over "flatlanders" (i.e. tourists, who coincidentally have something to show/ spend, and, make up 98% of the local economy); They don't refer to snow as bitter cold for nothing; Many are on the poor mans coke (crystal meth) and/ or drinking their life away; The kids, bless their hearts, are bored to death, like the parents who reside there; Crime is rampant but largely hidden (to not scare away the cash strapped tourists).

After chit-chatting with the locals for years, the people who claim to like Butt Hair really want to move yet don't have the resources to do so (or are sadly stuck with a mortgage in a house no one will buy).

Local property prices are dirt cheap and still mostly not selling (don't buy a house upfront if you move their, rent first to test the waters so you won't have a mortgage to abandon to get away from the freezing cold). Many people who bought second homes in Big Bare are walking away, which is a shame (BE WARNED: The local realtors are the most desperate liars of all time, particularly Mark Poster, aka Realty Executives and their associates) They'll tell you you could rent some (overpriced, eh-hem "shack") to tourists. But the local redneck laws are such that the city henchmen get most of your rental income... You'll likely get fined for the rest because of some stupid recluse neighbor calling the "ah-thor-ah-tays" because "someone with a "Mur-say-deez" parked nearby mah house and they are mak'n noize with muzik pleeze halp me ima simple person"!!! Now, the local police, who normally have absolutely nothing to do except chase after drunk druggie drivers are now stupidly harassing your tenants (and you) daily or weekly about parking in the dirt! Talk about desirability.

In short, after years of hibernation, we moved back to the city, kissed the ground and haven't looked back (the sun, the beach, museums, no lack of entertainment; education, business; recreational resources, yes traffic but it's crowded because everybody that comes here wants to stay). Smog? It mostly gets pushed out by our ocean breeze into the San Bernardino mountains!

If you're okay with: Nothing to do; Having few outside resources; Freezing cold; Looking forward to a cherished 60 mile round trip expedition to Wal-Mart; Can stomach being looked down on because you shower daily or have nice clothes and possessions (and want a "simple" life), Big Bear may work... Otherwise, save yourself the grief (and considerable money moving in/ out). Chalk it up to being a nice place to visit for the scenic beauty, stay for a day or so, take some pictures, then leave. Don't be taken in by the cheap real estate. After a week or so, it's a dirt cloud man.

I can only go by what I and other credible sources have seen... With little exception, Big Bare locals are as cold and bitter as the freezing weather, with thoughts as thin as the high altitude air. The area reflects this fact.

Wow. There must be a lot of kids in Big Bear with no imaginations. My kids are always busy-tubing, sledding, hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc. Boring people will be boring anywhere they live. Druggy people will use drugs anywhere they live. We have nice neighbors and have had only positive experiences there.

Big Bear Lake is amazing. The only downside is the locals who can't seem to figure out how to appreciate it and be happy.
