Local Activities

The mountain communities offer a wide array of activities for individuals and families alike. A range of outdoor and indoor activities are available each season of the year, thereby ensuring that there is never a dull moment in the life of a mountain resident. A typical Friday night could consist of a variety of activities ranging from dinner at a cozy local restaurant, to a movie at the local theater, to attending a jazz festival in Lake Arrowhead Village.

Outdoor activities include swimming, waterskiing, skiing, boating, snowboarding, climbing, hiking, and camping. In addition to the aforementioned outdoor activities, the mountain communities offer bowling, a movie theatre, and numerous dining options. Nearly all of the restaurants in the mountain communities are privately owned and they collectively offer an eclectic mix of cuisines including American, Chinese, and Mexican, among others.
