Yosemite is a year-round vacation destination, obviously most popular for its National Park, breathtaking landscapes, and wildlife. Jump in a nice rental SUV after landing at Fresno Airport then head 80 miles north to Yosemite. Passing Sierra National Forest will get you a first glimpse of the beautiful mountain scenery you’ll be calling home for the weekend. No matter the season, a stay in Yosemite always comes with many great things to see and do. Keep your eyes open for deer, foxes, bears, and even cougars! Spring is for lush dogwoods, jays and squirrels all over, while in summer, splashing around at the beach in Yosemite Valley, surrounded by the most amazing rock formations, makes for an unforgettable experience. Numerous hiking trails leading to dashing waterfalls begin at the border of Yosemite West and could possibly keep you busy all fall, while winter getaways might include skiing at Badger Pass. Nature lovers won’t want to ever leave again!
