  • Wawona has several hidden attractions and this is one of them. This is a great place to get away from the crowds in the valley. Take the time to enjoy the Pioneer Yosemite history. For a few months out of the year, the center has history reenactments.
  • Nice, uncrowded spot by the river for the family. Some good historical context can be found as well.
