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.
Family-friendly places like Badger Pass Ski Area and El Capitan will thrill your kids. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Cathedral Beach Picnic Area, admire the sheer force of Bridalveil Fall, hike along May Lake Trailhead, and contemplate the waterfront views at Mirror Lake/Meadow Trail.

For reviews, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Yosemite National Park sightseeing site.
