Back to Nature

Get around Yosemite Valley in the spiffy hybrid-electric buses that produce fewer emissions and leave you rested for the awe-inspiring hikes along the Mist Trail, Bridal Veil Falls and Cloud's Rest. Bring a wildlife identification book, or take a ranger-led expedition. Families love to stay at the Evergreen Lodge, an affordable mountain retreat with kids' activities and guided nature experiences. Or, get rustic and pitch your tent!

Recommended for: Kids old enough to walk on their own or small enough to ride on your back! There's something for every age group here.
Not so hot for: Couch potatoes and the wilderness-averse
