Yosemite National Park is an outstanding destination for families with children. There are few better destinations for introducing kids to the power, majesty, and complexity of the natural world than this sublime slice of the Sierra Nevada. The not-so-secret flipside is that the experience is also uproariously fun.
Yosemite vacations with kids can be as action-packed as you want them to be. An excellent resource for planning your getaway is the regularly updated Yosemite Guide, chockfull of details on guided events, directions, and essential information for getting the most out of your visit.
Kid-Friendly Yosemite Vacations
The Guide will clue you into regular happenings such as evening fireside storytelling and interpretive walks, specially highlighting those appropriate for all ages. There are also a slew of activities associated with the park’s organized children programs–the Wee Wild Ones, Little Cubs and Junior Rangers. These are excellent ways to get kids excited about and invested in the wonders of Yosemite and of national parks in general.
A ranger-led outing into the woods is an unparalleled way to combine education and adventure for those endlessly energetic kids–and they’ll surely also enjoy self-guided hikes, especially those they get to plan out with a little guidance. The Yosemite Guide spotlights easy strolls in the park, and the staff at any visitor center can steer you toward more.
Yosemite Magic at a Young Age
However you fill your family Yosemite vacations, you can be sure the park and its magnificent panoramas are seeping deep into your kids’ fibers. Alpenglow on the high peaks, a glimpse of a meadow-hunting coyote, the mesmerizing power of one of the great waterfalls–this is a place where unforgettable memories are forged.
