Definitely a bucket list item or two!!! Although the Yosemite Falls was dry , it is still an awesome sight. The tunnel view is spectacular!!!

This was a must do for our visit and we were not disappointed, we used it as a starting point for buses to all the sites and found everyone in the village helpful. Big pluses were the water fountains to refill bottles and the grocery store which had really good stock at incredible prices considering where it is and how... More

Very busy -- lots of day visitors, buses etc. But if you're staying in Yosemite it's worth a stop. The Ahwahnee village and the little museum are interesting. And after a day of walking around, it's nice to sit outside the convenience store with a beer and a sandwich.

Yosemite Village is a service center in Yosemite Valley. It is scenic because it's in the valley, but the village is really about visitor services. The historic Ahwahnee Hotel is here, as well as a Visitor's Center, Museum, and food services. The Visitor Center has exhibits about the nature and geology of Yosemite and a theatre that plays two different... More

While I love Yosemite and all it has to offer, I found the Village a bit too touristy for my taste. I enjoy being a tourist, but don't want it thrown in my face. That being said, there is no other place in California like Yosemite and all it has to offer!

The parking lots fill up quick so go early in the day. There is a visitor center, historic post office, a small museum with great art, and a few places to eat. Lodging is available too along with a stable offering different rides and several hiking trails.

Really wanted to like Yosemite, but Yosemite Village was just horrifying. After camping across the country in several national parks we found Yosemite Village to be so crowded (with dare I say "Chuckleheads") that it was not enjoyable. There were so many, many, many bicycles I felt like I was in Pee Wee's Big Adventure when he lost he bike... More

One of the most amazing experiences EVER. I admit the drive in had been spectacular if not a little nerve racking for those who do not like to see the sheer drop! We staying in a wood cabin with its own private little patio area. The most fantastic and thankfully natural (as is possible) setting I have ever stayed in.... More

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
