A Visitor's Guide to Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park is a stunning and historic area and unquestionably one of the most popular National Parks in the United States. In fact the park is so expansive that a visitor's guide to Yosemite National Park can only scratch the surface of all there is to do and see!

One of the factors that many visitors' guides to Yosemite National Park fail to mention is that one will need at least a few days to enjoy the entire park's natural wonders. What's more is that should one actually have the time to spare, the National park can provide visitors with comfortable accommodation experiences. Yosemite National Park can accommodate its many visitors with an array of campgrounds, RV lots, cabins and a hotel. So whether you have a tent or a trailer or even if you want something a bit more upscale you will find plenty of options at the park itself.

Visitors to Yosemite National Park will be able to see of the country's famous landmarks such as the Bridal Veil Falls, one of Yosemite's most famous waterfalls as well as some of the most stunning natural rock formations in North America: Yosemite's El Capitan and Half-dome. El Capitan stands over 3,000 feet from head to toe while Half-dome continues to remind visitors why it has that name in the first place.

Any visit to Yosemite National Park will not be complete without a trip to the "Giants of the Northwest." These giants are the beautiful trees in the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. The Mariposa Grove is the largest grove of the giant Redwood trees in Yosemite. Like silent witnesses to the park's history, the Sequoias tower to heights of over 200 feet. As the park goes to great lengths to protect these redwood behemoths it is best to sit back and relax while enjoying the view from the seat of the park's tram ride.

The park is also a bird lover's dream and an animal lover's delight and it enthrals its visitors with the plentiful flora and fauna that thrive there. Yosemite National Park continues to win over fans with each new generation of visitors. The Yosemite National park is located in central California and is accessible by bus, car or bike. Entrance fees are $20.00 per car or $10.00 per individual entering on foot, horse or bike. Veterans and individuals with disabilities receive an entrance-fee discount. Yosemite is a truly memorable location and you are sure to not be disappointed.
