Yosemite has got to be one of the most beautiful, awe inspiring places I've seen. Sedona AZ also ranks right up there with Yosemite, just different, but both beautiful. Lots of trails to explore. The village has museums, stores, book stores, art stores, an Indian village, lots of things to see. Plus then you walk outside and see the giant... More

It almost like visiting for the first time, that's how we felt coming back after 20 years. The valley hasn't changed but the amenities had become better, organized transportation, and you feel like you are engulfed by the sceneries and nature around you . Great hikes, walks, and biking trails. It's like going back to pure life way back when,... More

A necessary evil for most people, this is touristy, educational and congregational all at the same time. As do most of these places, it tailors to the RV crowd. For those of us who are serious campers, it does offer exhibits on history and geology. We did find the movies and educational pieces fascinating and it gives you a better... More

Skip the Village Grill- food is not good at all. This is where you will find the post office, store- for groceries and souvenirs, art center and the nearby Visitors Center. A good central place in the Valley. Many shuttle stops here so you can come/go very easily.

A perfect spot for those camping and also others wanting souvenirs. Food at the snack bar was good and the folks dispensing the food, even though VERY busy were friendly and pleasant. If you need food items or great souvenirs this is a great place to go.

If your looking for Ansel Adams photographs, this is the place to go. In addition, they have unusual jewelry items and some great books to choose from

My spouse and I drove the 45 miles to get to the park entrance, the. Endured the switchbacks and mountainous draining to see "el capitan" and Yosemite village and all other areas of the park. Many easy and moderate hiking trails exist. There were a lot of visitors and traffic was heavy, but tolerable. River rafting is available and the... More

Not quite what I had expected of a village within a national park. Nice and quaint with some interesting lodgings. A few places to eat too but watch out for bears at the local campsites.

The restaurant had higher prices than we wanted to pay, so we decided to try the pizza and salad. We received more salad in one container than we could eat. The dressing was Paul Newman dressing. The pizza was absolutely scrumptious and very popular with several diners of all ages! Great prices and our order was not pre-made and sitting... More

This was our base of operations during our one day visit to Yosemite. You also pick up the bus tour here and there are several restaurants.
