Marina to Yosemite


We will be traveling from Marina to Yosemite early in July. We are wondering if there are any stops we should try and make sure we do along the way. We are traveling with one older child, and two teenagers.

Most of this drive will be pretty boring - you have to cross the central valley, which is mostly farmland and non-descript towns. It will get more scenic once you reach the foothills though.

San Juan Bautista makes a nice stop - the mission is there and it has a rebuilt/restored old town square. It is a good place to learn some California history. It is right off Hwy 156, so on the way, but only about a half hour into your drive, so not very well-placed for breaking up the drive.
