Top Ten Things to do in Yosemite



Description:

Renting a raft from next to Curry Village is the one item not listed here, but it's a unique way to see Yosemite Valley. Don't miss the higher country on the Tioga Road (Lembert Dome) and the Glacier Point Road (Sentinel Dome). Yosemite Valley's attractions are numerous, and include hikes that are at least somewhat challenging to those that are as demanding as they come. Making a summit attempt on Half Dome is a pilgrimage of commitment for many. There's also the popular Valley Floor Tram Tour for the more sedentary, and pedaling your bike around the Valley floor is a great way to explore. The three groves of giant sequoia trees are part of the reason Yosemite was preserved to begin with; not to be missed. Yosemite is place where it's not easy to pick just ten best experiences.
