Massive granite mountains, towering waterfalls, groves of Giant Sequoia trees, and wilderness as far as the eye can see distinguish the landscape of Yosemite National Park.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Yosemite National Park: Bridgeport (Bodie State Historic Park, Travertine Hot Spring, &more), Lee Vining (Mono Basin Historical Society, Lundy Lake, &more) and Nelder Grove (in Madera). There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Tioga Pass, explore the activities along Tenaya Lake, explore the striking landscape at Glacier Point, and admire the sheer force of Yosemite Falls.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Yosemite National Park sightseeing planning website.
