    Go Snowboarding in Southern California!

    The Place to Be

    The secret is out that there is a mountain close by to Los Angeles that has some great runs to board. That place is Snow Summit, a great place to snowboard in Big Bear. The locals know this place, and now you do. Just drive through up the mountain to Big Bear to find these skiing/boarding areas. Snowboarding in Southern California has never been so good.

  • Best Massage Ever!

    by blaz686 Written Jul 14, 2006

    I got a massage at Cloud 9 Massage Therapy. It was the best ever! She is so good! I honestly felt like I was floating on Cloud 9. Her room is so perfect. It makes you feel like you are in heaven, well you are. I highly recommend her!

  • I think one of the most unique...

    I think one of the most unique aspects of nearby Big Bear Lake is that it has a Sun Observatory near the middle. How can an observatory be in the middle of a lake? A long rocky penninsula runs in a straight line for about a hundred yards out into the lake itself. At the end there's a tall white building, that's rounded at the top, where astronomers study the sun.
    Being an insatiably curious person, the study of the universe has inspired and captivated me since I was very little. Who could have guessed that when ancient man looked to the heavens and saw the beauty of God reflected in the stars, that he was only skimming the very surface of the infinitely vast and awe-inspiring vista of creation. Astronomy has deepened our understanding of ourselves by extending mankind's physical vision to the point of surpassing what even our imaginations had been able to conceive before. I have great respect for those enterprising minds who attempt to understand existence through exploration. After all, where would VTourist be if no one attempted to explore the wonderful world around them? Who knows? Maybe someday people will be travelling to other planets. Then we'd be able to write about Mars and the 'Galactic Nebula' instead of (Yawn) Big Bear. Anyways, just go see the observatory. Sheesh!
