We are so glad we found this little tucked away marina in Big Bear. There are others, but this one has the Pirate Ship tour!! And, boy - would we recommend that!!
The tour was unique, the kids loved it! The Pirate tour guide and cocktail "wench" were great too!
If you are looking for a tour - do this one for sure! Oh, and consider doing the 6pm, the tranquil waters and sunset make it even more perfect!
We went to an event at the Pearl recently and the food and atmosphere were wonderful, as always. But, when many of our friends had booked rooms to stay the night, they were pretty disappointed. The rooms were cute and went with the theme ,but were pretty bare-bones for the nearly $200/night price. So, enjoy the bar/food, but forgo the overnight (unless you get a last minute deal...)
This hotel offers a monthly mom's day out where moms and tots can enjoy exclusive time at the beach bar! Usually with kid-friendly music or other entertainment, it's a ton of fun, (and a little swanky!) But, they keep it very affordable with 1/2 price kid's meals etc.
Would recommend this fun event!
We brought our vehicle here and they had it for a WEEK while we were out of town. Nothing was done! :-( Long story short, when they did finally do the repair(s) and charged us nearly $1000, we left to find that the noise/problem we brought it in for was STILL happening! They did not property diagnose and then charged us for a bunch of work we didn't need!
We are still negotiating this issue with them, but it has been a terrible burden regardless if we ever see some sort of a refund. We would NOT recommend ...
We were lucky enough to win a free night at this local hotel and what a treat it was!!
The location and views are wonderful. The pools are a lot of fun for the kids and the buffets are VERY scrumptious!
But, most importantly - the STAFF was outstanding!
Fair warning though - EVERYTHING costs money: rent a blow up toy at the pool, overnight parking and the buffet breakfast not included ...so it can easily add up to another $100 or so on top of your rate!
Ok, so 10 years living near by and we NEVER made it to this place. But, when we did - we were very excited! Our 10 and 5 year old LOVED it! While it's not "real" camping by any means, it's FULL of activities and that's the adventure.
You and the kids bike, scooter and walk all over the place. It's a crack up.
Would recommend for a fun get away right in your own backyard!
We enjoy meeting friends at Wine Steals pretty regularly.
We wish the service was not so "one-size fits all" though. I prefer to be seated and relax, rather than fighting to place my order at the bar... Outside you can do that, but inside it is rarely an option. Kinda awkward.
But, nice atmosphere, Good prices, & good food!
We are just neighborhood customers, but we are VERY glad these local boys decided to stay in their neighborhood when opening Tender Greens! They are doing a GREAT JOB! I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is much hearty fare as well - now I can share the place with my husband as well!
Yummy food, good atmosphere, nice owners/staff! Welcome Tender Greens!
We were a little scared to get into the "Karate thing", but we are very glad we found USA Freestyle! The instructors are REALLY wonderful with the kids and our son (age 5) LOVES it! They offer parent participation days/ buddy days, etc. They teach A LOT about patience, responsibilty, etc - and the kids don't even know they are learning. Again, we are VERY impressed with the instructors. We would recommend!
Dr. Strauss delivered my baby many years ago. He has also seen me through some serious medical issues. His humor is "dry", but if you don't mind that (I think it's great) he's as good as they get. He pays ATTENTION!! He takes his time. He calls you personally. He is never in a hurry on the phone or in the office.
His office staff as also been very proactive in helping me navigate some insurance junk too. Great office - highly recommend!
