Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park ©
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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Four Mile Trail and Olmsted Point. Attractions like Cathedral Beach Picnic Area and Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from Yosemite National Park with a short trip to Tioga Rd in Lee Vining, about 52 minutes away. Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Bridalveil Fall. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Tenaya Lake, tour the pleasant surroundings at Panorama Trail, hike along Tuolumne Meadows, and don't miss a visit to Tuolumne Grove of Giant Sequoias.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Yosemite National Park visit planner.

August in Yosemite National Park sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 43°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
