Best Weekend Getaway Orange County 2009 - Lake Arrowhead
Twenty million dollars can do a lot for a place. And it has done wonders for Lake Arrowhead. After being devastated by fires in 2003, the mountain community was in need of a reinvention; out of the ashes has sprung a beautiful mountain setting complete with boutique shops, outdoor recreation and spectacular views that set the scene for relaxation. Located 5,000 feet above sea level in the San Bernardino Mountains, this mountain masterpiece has been known to most Orange County residents as "that place I had summer camp in fifth grade." There's more to it, folks.
