California on the Road: Yosemite National Park

by Little Fairy Project on 08 Apr 2016

We drove from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Park, one of the most spectacular places that we’d seen during our journey through California, whose imposing nature kept surprising us for three whole days. The drive itself was quite long, even though the American roads are very pleasant with numerous service stations. In one of the remote areas, we came across an incredible interactive museum, where Edo played and had a lot of fun. It helped us rest and reembark on our journey more relaxed.


What we loved: visiting giant Sequoias of the Sequoia National Park, observing the animals like squirrels, dears and birds, organising fun picnics (there are numerous places intended for picnics), admiring majestic rocky mountains, trying to come across the famous bears present in the park, visiting a historic village where life of the pioneers is reproduced (Pioneer Yosemite History Center) and playing around the river with local animals. If you have big kids, the activities for them are numerous: from tracking, mountain climbing, rafting, bird watching to ranger tours through the park and many, many others.

We stayed in Tanaya Lodge, a refuge situated in the entrance area to the park and most suitable for our family. Our room was quite big, restaurant food was very good and there is also a fantastic swimming pool, which considering the august heat, was very useful.
If you wish to particularly pamper yourself you can stay in a historic hotel Ahwahnee, the most refined place in the entire park, but also the most touristic one. We visited it one afternoon, had a snack and admired its amazing architecture.
