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.
Big Trees Lodge, National Historic Landmark and Bodie State Historic Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get in touch with nature at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Glacier Point. Change things up with a short trip to Groveland Yosemite Gateway Museum in Groveland (about 1h 10 min away). There's still lots to do: hike along Tuolumne Meadows, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Bridalveil Fall, explore the striking landscape at Lembert Dome, and cruise along Tioga Pass.
