Why plan Yosemite travel?
The majestic beauty of Yosemite National Park beckons to many, enticing would-be-travelers with the pristine waterfalls, massive sequoias and unparalleled natural magnificence. Yosemite offers many activities, from skiing during winter months, to kayaking and hiking in summer. Here are some good reasons to visit this awesome natural playground, and some activities you may want to consider.
Yosemite Travel for Romantic Adventure
Yosemite travel may not be a ‘traditional’ romance spot, but when you think about it, it really is the perfect place for romantic adventure. Hike with your honey and enjoy the beautiful rush of the waterfalls in spring. Or enjoy a romantic moonlit tour along Yosemite’s valley floor.
In winter, snuggle up with the one you love after a day of skiing and snow-covered Yosemite splendor. For a honeymoon, anniversary, or ‘just because,’ Yosemite travel makes a great romantic getaway.
When’s the last time you took a family vacation? Yosemite offers many family friendly activities, like living history shows, evening campfires, scavenger hunts and swimming in Curry Village, raft rides, and even panning for gold experiences.
More than the activities, though, is the valuable time you’ll have as a family with Yosemite travel. Hiking, rafting, fishing, and more offer perfect times for family togetherness and growth without the distractions of the outside world.
