Big Bear City
Big Bear City is not a city at all, rather an unincorporated, census-designated place in San Bernardino Mountains immediately east of Big Bear Lake, a mountain resort community. The makeup of Big Bear City is commercial and residential and is home to the Big Bear airport. Mostly smaller houses and cabins can be found here, laid out in typical square block fashion. Many full-time Big Bear residents call Bear City home, though the majority of homes in the area are second homes and or vacation rentals.
