Yosemite, California

One of California’s most amazing natural landscapes, Yosemite National Park features nearly 1,200 square miles of absolute awe. Yosemite offers towering waterfalls, millennia-old Sequoia trees, daunting cliff faces and some of the most unique rock formations in the United States. But despite its enormous size, most of the tourist activity takes place within a 7-square-mile area of Yosemite Valley. Here you’ll find the park’s most famous landmarks – Half Dome and El Capitan – as well as excellent hiking trails through the natural monuments. Even inexperienced hikers can enjoy Yosemite: Guided tours and climbing lessons are available from local adventure specialists. Just don’t expect to experience it by yourself. Like so many other American tourist destinations, crowds are the biggest obstacles to an enjoyable Yosemite vacation. There are at least 4 million people visit each year. But if you go at the right time and start your day a little earlier than usual, these natural wonders will reveal themselves to you in a miraculous and serene way. This experience will be one that you remember for your entire life. The scenery is absolutely breathe taking.
