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.

Interesting to contrast with our last visit during January of this year when most places were closed. Surprisingly, it is still feasible to have a reasonable, albeit crowded visit to the Villasge and the Valley during summer. Make good use of the shuttles, which have fairly good frequency.

We absolutely loved our trip to Yosemite. It was amazing. I wanted to mention the Curry Village Recreation Centre as there isn't a separate review for it. My partner is a manual wheelchair user after breaking his neck over 14 years ago. We don't like to let this stop us from getting about and seeing some amazing things. He really... More

If you're looking for a good place to buy souvenirs, use restrooms, grab a quick lunch, Yosemite Village has all of that. When we were walking by we noticed a post office and decided to buy some post cards at a nearby souvenir shop to send back home. We're glad we did, it was something our family members didn't expect... More

The village is predictable: store, bathrooms, souvenirs. The feeling isn't as it once was 18 years ago when I last visited but it's very helpful to have such a place. Park nearby and walk the village area which includes shopping (including the Ansel Adams Gallery), bathrooms, and a mini-museum in the same area. But don't go expecting to see "Yosemite".... More

I don't know if this is a village or not. I do know that its designed for a positive customer experience. There's a lot to buy and a lot of items that you would see in any nature themed gift shop or bookstore. There's a lot of framed photos to buy and lots of jewelry and things that are made... More

We enjoyed a full day in the village walking around and observe the Mother Nature. Dears, birds and shameless squirls are your visit companions while scenery of peaks and waterfalls are completing a wonderful experience. For renting a bike try to be there before 4:15 PM otherwise there is no chance to get one.
