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

Good luck finding a place to park. And this is purportedly the OFF season. Area sorely in need of some replanning and reworking. Where possible, take the shuttles.

If you cannot find what you need at the Valley Visitor Center (groceries, souvenirs, etc.), surely you can in Yosemite Village. I saw other reviews about their being short-staffed, but that was not a problem when we visited late in the year.

Yosemite National Park is stunning and for a visitor to the US, a once in a lifetime experience. With a national park policy of open access for all, this is where Yosemite Village achieves that goal, but the price is very high. With over 200 lodges and coach loads of visitors every day it is very crowded. The very antitheses... More

The Village Store has almost anything you would need to supplement meals for your trip. We were able to buy propane for our stove and dinner supplies. They have almost all major grocery items and a nice selection of souvenirs. The only downside is they seemed short staffed.
