  • The quaint village where you have the opportunity to visit the Museum of the native Americans of the area and also in the direct vicinity you can get free entry into an area where it was built a mini village of the natives ... where you realize the size of the cabins and what life was like in a small native community. I recommend bringing children to visit the village. surely will prove interesting. the surrounding area also has a large gift shop. Watch your wallets ... the souvenirs are not just given away. a good experience!

  • It's Yosemite, what you can say! As expected, it is awesome. If you can come after some good rains the falls will be much better. As well known as Yosemite is, it isn't as busy as you might expect- which is great! From you car there is a great drive with many spots to pull-off, and it's not to hard to get some amazing pictures and see the wonderful views. Fill-up your gas before entering the park, but if needed gas is sold inside (you'll pay the premium for it though). There are also several places to camp, reserve a spot early if you can. A must see if you're in the Fresno area.
  • Great camping spot. You have to make line at 6:00 a.m. in hopes of getting a spot, only 56 numbers are given out.. $6 per person per day, restrooms are cleaned every day, toilet flushes and toilet paper provided.. no soap in restroom, bring your own.. squirrel are everywhere, storage bins provided at every camp site because of bears... great nature place will definitely go back..
  • If you visit California, this is the one place that I recommend above all else to visit. Landmarks such as El Capitain and Half Dome are spectacularly brilliant. Even though its a bit of a trek from most major cities, its well worth visiting, especially if you are into hiking and photography.
  • This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Yosemite Village is great because even though it's in the middle of the forest, there is a sense of community with other visitors. There is everything from hiking, biking, canoeing, fine dining, and shows. I love coming here.
  • Absolutely stunningly gorgeous. And Yosemite Villiage has pretty much anything you could need while in the park.
