Sightseeing
Half Dome is an iconic Yosemite feature. It is best seen either from Glacier Point (drive out Glacier Point Road, which is close to the Yosemite Cabin) and enjoy the unique view of Half Dome's profile and back side. You can also take the trail to Mirror Lake from Curry Village and enjoy the view of Half Dome from its base. Another cool/adventurous option is to take the Snow Creek Trail (a super steep, windy trail) and get some of the best head-on views of Yosemite from across its canyon.

This is the first waterfall you come to upon entering Yosemite Valley from the Yosemite Cabin. It's a quick, light hike to its base - and worth the trip any time of year.

Drive out Glacier Point Road from the Yosemite Cabin. We recommend stopping at Taft Point for the 1-mile, low-angle hike out to the most stunning views of El Capitan and other special features in the Valley. Not many tourists do this!

A great, low-angle hike that even kiddos can do. Great views of Half Dome and Mirror Lake is a great place for a dip. The lake dries up by autumn though!

This is a high-angle trail that takes you to the top of Yosemite Falls. If you are fit and looking for a safe adventure, this is worth your time! Often you will spy high-liners walking slacklines above the Falls, which is a special thing to watch!

When it's hot and crowded in the Yosemite Valley, we head to Tuoloumne Meadows to hike, climb, walk and enjoy the cooler temperatures and smaller crowds. There are beautiful granite domes all through Tuoloumne, which makes the drive stunning... even if you don't get out of your car.

This is a great day-hike that provides incredible views and unique perspectives of Yosemite. It's not short... and it can be steep in places, so make sure you're up for the adventure!

Classic Hotel, Bar and Restaurant
The Ahawanee Hotel is a Yosemite Classic and offers the only fine dining in the Valley. Worth a visit for a nice drink or a formal meal in the fancy dining room.

Food scene
For a nice drink at the end of a fun day, head to the Mountain Room Bar (there's an awesome fireplace for chilly winter evenings) to spot climbers and other local heros. And for a great dinner, the Mountain Room is a local favorite. The prices range from about $20-35 per plate.

The only proper grocery store located in Yosemite is in the Yosemite Village. They have everything you could want/need - but it's slightly more pricey than if you stop at VONS in Oakhurst or the grocery store in Mariposa on your way into Yosemite.
