Lake Gregory Regional Park

Lake Gregory stands amid a cool cedar and pine forest in the San Bernardino Mountains. But don’t let the pastoral setting fool you - the park teems with activity throughout the year as nature lovers converge for a wide range of recreational activities.People flock to Lake Gregory to enjoy its cool 84-acres of surface area for swimming and water sports. Each August, a 2,500-year-old Chinese tradition comes alive at Lake Gregory in the form of Dragon Boat Races. The elongated canoes seat 12 to 20 people, and a drummer beats a cadence to set a pace for the paddlers.Other activities include a fitness trail with exercise stations, picnic areas with barbecue grills, fishing, a skate park and model boat area. Four-legged friends are welcome at Lake Gregory’s dog park.The park lodge is available for events ranging from weddings to company parties.

We used to love going here,but this time we did not even go in.The lake looked like it's dried up a lot on the side near the street.They have added big rafts,slides and blow up stuff so now they call it a water park.But in doing so raised the prices since we came .we used to go for a few hours and rent the paddle boats but for $10 a head and $10 to park,and then the rentals,it no long ER seemed worth it to us.If your going for a full day I guess it might.Sad we really loved it there years ago,but Times and things change.

Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear are all worth the trip. All have beautiful mountain views and fun things to do. Lake Gregory for picnics and swimming. Lake Arrowhead for dining and unique shopping. Big Bear for snow boarding/skiing, plus a quaint village with shops and many good restaurants/diners. Take your camera and if you are into hiking, there's lots of good, save trails. Also, plenty of lodging in this forest.

Lake Arrowhead Queen

Reviewed By Linda L - Vancouver, Canada

We bought our tickets 10 minutes before the 11:00 sailing and there were only 10 of us on the paddlewheeler, so it was almost like a personal tour. Captain Craig kept us entertained, regaling us with historical facts about the area, pointing out celebrities' homes, and telling us some pretty corny jokes - and sometimes breaking into song, too! It was a perfect day to be out on the water and the time went by quickly. This is definitely worthwhile doing, and the price is reasonable too.

We took our young grandkids to visit the fire lookout and they had a great time. Wonderful views, and nice volunteers to answer questions. The lookout is not the sturdiest structure so they recommend not more than 5 visitors at a time. Definitely worth the visit.

This facility is very clean and looks great. The employees were all very enthusiastic and seemed to be enjoying their jobs. Santa was a really, really good looking Mr. Claus. We were there with out two granddaughters, ages 4 and nearly 3. They thoroughly enjoyed the day which began at 10 a.m. and lasted until about 4. There was plenty for them to do. I doubt, however, that older children would be as enthralled. I think the trick is to go mid-week before maybe December 20. We were there on Dec. 15 and it wasn't overly crowded (whew!).

Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area

Reviewed By CrankingChick - Tucson, Arizona

We stopped in at the lake while driving the Rim of the World scenic byway (CA138). Day-use fee was about $10. We were there on a Friday before Memorial Day and it was very quiet - we only saw a few people fishing. We drove around to admire the lake from different vantage points and the facilities seemed very nice. There were sandy beaches and plenty of restrooms. Paved bike trails wind through the park and connect to the beaches and campgrounds, but most of them appeared too rough and/or steep for a wheelchair. We walked the short paved "Cleghorn Trail" from parking lot 5 toward Garces Overlook because it was advertised as accessible, but a gate/baffle made entrance difficult and it was steep and becoming overgrown with vegetation - didn't look like it is being maintained. The beaches and picnic areas seemed nice enough but we didn't experience the campgrounds. If you just want to see the lake, there is a free scenic viewpoint on CA138 about 1.5 miles north of the park entrance at Cleghorn Rd.

Reviewed By bamollers760 - Riverside, California

This casino is just very convenient for a lot of people who shouldn’t even be going to a casino. That’s the start of an old post. I had some complaints regarding the pit bosses and how unfriendly they seem to be to regular players in High Limit table games. Just recently a dealer mentioned that I could request the table be RESERVED to prevent the mid shoe buy-ins. Those people who are “afraid to win are are the “table experts” who are playing the table minimum bet of $50, which is absurd. That same visit a pit boss in the second High Limit table gaming area told me the same thing. Later I found out from the initial dealer that she told the pit boss to make mention of that to me when she walked though the other room and saw me playing. Good looking out, from the dealer and the pit boss that day!

Lake Arrowhead Village

Reviewed By RNRVTravler - Crestview, Florida

This is a great little village nestled in the mountains. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride up the Rim of the World Highway.
In the village are outlet shops and restaurants as well as kiddie rides and mini golf. There are public restrooms placed conveniently throughout the shopping areas of the village.
Parking is free but it can be a nightmare when it starts to get busy. There were several long waits for people who came later in the morning. Good advice would be to arrive early.

This is a very dog friendly village with water dishes outside of many shops. There is a grassy dog walk area with clean-up bags near the carousel.

Original McDonald's Site and Museum

Reviewed By misopiso88 - Seattle, Washington

We had seen the movie "The Founder" so thought it would be interesting to stop at the site of the original McDonald's. So many cool artifacts as well as many things borrowed from the museum to produce the movie. The majority of items are happy meal toys from various years and countries which is an interesting glimpse into pop culture. The museum is FREE which is very generous since it is privately run. Recommend for a quick stop if you are a McDonald's fan!
