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.
Take a break from the city and head to Cathedral Beach Picnic Area and Pothole Dome. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Big Trees Lodge, National Historic Landmark and Ansel Adams Gallery. Change things up with a short trip to Stanislaus National Forest in Hathaway Pines (about 38 minutes away). Spend the 6th (Sun) on the water with a fishing tour. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Vernal Fall, hike along May Lake Trailhead, explore the striking landscape at Cloud's Rest, and get great views at Tunnel View.

For ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Yosemite National Park sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Fresno Yosemite International Airport, Reno Tahoe International Airport and Sacramento International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Yosemite National Park are 22°C, while nighttime lows are -2°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
