Ready to start planning your trip to Yosemite National Park? Here are some helpful tips to help you make the most of your Yosemite vacation.
If you’re bringing the family… Consider a bus tour through the park. Guided tours are a great way to start Yosemite vacations because they expose you to areas and aspects of the park that you might not otherwise get to see. A number of Yosemite bus tours are offered through the National Park Service, including the Valley Floor Tour, a two-hour tour of Yosemite Valley; the Glacier Point Tour which lasts four hours; and the Tuolumne Meadows Tour, an all day excursion. If you already know a little bit about the park, you can also opt to take yourself on a tour in your very own car. Yosemite maps are easy to navigate and are readily available.
If you’re planning an outdoor adventure… Remember to acquire the necessary permits and reserve the appropriate Yosemite vacation rentals to make your adventure is safe and legal. A permit is now required to climb Half Dome, and fishing licenses are required to fish in Frog Creek, Lake Eleanor, or the Tuolumne River. Many of the fishing and/or climbing supplies you’ll need can be purchased or rented at the park, but permits and licenses should be obtained well before your trip to Yosemite National Park in order to ensure that you’ll be able to do exactly what you’d like.
If you’re planning a Yosemite vacation for yourself and a loved one… Why not plan a romantic hike? Pick a trail that won’t be too difficult for either of you (huffing, puffing and sweating profusely isn’t exactly ideal when you’re trying to set a romantic mood). Bring along a picnic lunch and take in the wild beauty of Yosemite with the one you love.
And most importantly… All great Yosemite vacations start with great lodging.
