California’s Yosemite National Park will have you amazed by its beauty, lush greenery, huge sequoia trees, caves, streams, and mountains. This naturalist’s playground will keep you busy for hours and hours.
8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. | Breakfast: Before heading into the park, grab breakfast at June Bug’s Café. This café boasts traditional American fare sourced mainly from the local region and offers organic and vegan options.
9:30 a.m. – Noon | Morning Meandering in the park: After breakfast, head into the park. There’s a lot to see in Yosemite, but we recommend checking out the waterfalls in Yosemite Valley before walking the trails and exploring the wildlife. Looking for something more structured? A ranger led tour is a great family-friendly option.
12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. | Lunch: After spending the morning hiking, recharge at the Wawona Hotel Dining Room. Here you can take a break, grab a bite to eat, and relax a bit before you head off to your next adventure. This American style restaurant offers soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers.
2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. | Sequoia National Park: After lunch, head south and check out the world’s largest trees. Sequoia National Park’s dramatic landscape features huge mountains, deep canyons, rugged foothills, and breathtaking sequoia trees. Spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the Sequoia groves and hiking and backpacking through some of the best views the area has to offer.
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. | Dinner: Before heading back to your resort, grab dinner at The Gateway Restaurant and Lodge. This is the perfect place to kick back and decompress from your day. The Gateway is a favorite for locals and visitors alike and features an open-air dining patio that overlooks the Kaweah River.
