This isn't much in the way of an attraction. However, if you're visiting the Yosemite valley, this is probably the only place to stock up on food and drinks and the restrooms here were reasonably clean.

It's one of those places I always wanted to vist, it was like stepping back to a time which could easily have been lost, great walks around the village, with lots to see around and upwards, great base for anyone planning a vist to this very special valley.

Other than as a starting point for a hike, stocking up or grabbing a bite to eat there's really nothing here to make this a destination. It's busy too and some parts are quite unattractive when set against the rest of the park and much better views can be found elsewhere. River is quite nice to potter around beside.

Lot's of concessions, stores, huge parking lots, people. Reminds you of what you are trying to get away from. However if you go, the Visitors Center is a must along with the Yosemite Museum and the Falls.

So wives and girlfriends, give the "no speeding" lecture and Good Moms and Good Dads , give the "no shoplifting" lecture. The judges pride themselves on expensive ruining your vacation if you start a bar fight or cross the line. The best/fav shop stop is Ansel Adams, natch. Then the Visitor Center and Indian Village and Museum. You "Must" see... More

At the nice market they sell everything from groceries to t shirts to souvenirs. You can find all sorts of healthy food to junk food here. Prices are a bit steep but you would expect that in this remote location. Good values in the closeout section over to the side. Post office, visitor center and Degman;s deli were all open.... More

This is a good central place to hang out and walk around in the park but is very crowded even on a weekday during summer. Finding parking is a real nightmare even if you want to take the shuttles to other parts of the park.

Yes, most of the dining & retail needs updating but overall the feel of the village in the park is worth going to. Everything is walkable & we saw deer roam free as we walked from place to place.

This is the shopping area for Yosemite. Since they need to truck things into the valley floor, prices will generally be higher than if you bought ahead and brought them with you. Parking and lines can be dramatically long. However given that, they do provide a wide range of things that you might like to have while on ones vacation... More
