We love Yosemite and the Valley Floor is the most accessible point in the park for everyone. It can be extremely crowded most of the year - congestion and lines - feels like the Disneyland of National Parks. If you can get past the crowds...More

Beautiful place with the giant granite mountains rising around you and the crystal flowing river. Water falls all around. Weather changes quickly. Expect crowds.
