Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Big Trees Lodge, National Historic Landmark and Yosemite Museum Gallery. Visiting Tuolumne Meadows and Glacier Point will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Scenic Route Highway 49 (in Oakhurst), El Portal Market (in El Portal) and Bear Valley (Bear Valley Cross Country and Adventure Company & Bear Valley Mountain Resort). There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape at Sentinel Dome, hike along Lembert Dome, explore the activities along Tenaya Lake, and don't miss a visit to Yosemite Village.
