Set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Mariposa prides itself on its friendly small-town feel and Old West heritage. It was first settled in 1849 as a gold rush town and today serves as a gateway to the famed granite cliffs and picturesque valley of one of the country's most popular national parks. The downtown area has the feel of a bygone era, with boardwalks lining the streets and buildings dating back as far as the 1850s. In addition to enjoying the Western Americana vibe, visitors can learn about the area's pioneer and gold rush history by touring historical buildings and visiting the local museum. The town's proximity to the national park makes Mariposa a favorite among nature lovers. Our United States travel itinerary maker allows you to plan your trip to Mariposa and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
