Yosemite in a Day

The Crown Jewel of the National Parks!

Child (11 years and under)

6:30-7:00am | 15 Hours | Daily

Yosemite National Park is the “Crown Jewel” of the National Parks system! Enjoy this 1-Day trip to one of the nations oldest National Parks!

The drive to Yosemite Valley is approximately 3 ½ to 4 hours in length. There will be a brief rest stop halfway to the valley. While on board the bus, your tour guide will provide narration and you will see such sights as:
Bridal Veil Falls
El Capitan
Half Dome
Merced River
Valley views

Once in the valley, you will be able to enjoy up to 3 hours of leisure time to explore the park. You can walk to the base of Yosemite Falls, check out the visitor center, visit the Ansel Adams Gallery, stop in at the Ahwahnee Hotel, rent a cruiser bike, or hike some of the trails that originate from the valley. Although you could spend three weeks in Yosemite, the three hours you get on your own is enough time to understand why Yosemite is one of America’s most popular national parks.
