      Big Bear, CA,  February 8, 2014 – Perhaps you’ve seen movement out of the corner of your eye from time to time, or the flash of a misty figure on a dark night. Or maybe you’ve found your dog staring at something you couldn’t see. If you’ve had one of these experiences, you may have met one of the many ghosts that are said to inhabit Big Bear right along with us. Our most famous ghost is undoubtedly George, the accountant at the Captain’s Anchorage, who died long ago under mysterious circumstances. Long time employees tell stories of their clothing being tugged on, whispering in their ears, bottles falling off shelves, and music playing when no one is there.There’s a woman in Sugarloaf who claims that a group of Serrano Indian spirits walk through her kitchen on a regular basis.

Hikers and rock climbers have reported seeing what are thought to be echoes of the moment she fell. Some of the other spooky spots in Big Bear where you might have your own encounter include the Miss Liberty Tour Boat and the Big Bear Mountain Brewery. Miss Liberty is docked near the spot where two children are thought to have died...
