Discover Yosemite

“The Top of My Bucket List”
“The Jewel of the Sierra”
“America’s First National Park”
“Inspiring” can’t begin to cover the enormity of the many Yosemite experiences possible. I encourage you to create different bucket list events for Yosemite and begin to check them off as soon as possible.

  • Experience the falls
  • Be inspired at Glacier Point
  • Step back in time in Wawona
  • Hike – easy to expert
  • Float down the river
  • Picnic in the meadow and watch climbers on El Cap
  • Explore the museums, visitor centers and historical sites
  • Walk in the footsteps of Presidents at the Awanhee Hotel
  • Visit Yosemite in winter
  • Visit Yosemite in autumn

No matter how many people visit Yosemite each year, the valley and the mountains will touch you personally and become your own personal experience. Try one or all of these ways to discover Yosemite.
