Famous for its plunging cataracts and massive granite formations, this unparalleled parkland attracts more than four million visitors each year—with good reason. Nearly the size of Rhode Island, Yosemite National Park dazzles with unforgettable natural beauty. Most visitors head directly to Yosemite Valley, a 4,000-foot-deep trough lined by sheer cliffs of glacially sculpted rock. It’s amazing, but don’t you dare stop there. You have to drive through the Wawona Tunnel, explore the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, wander through Tuolumne Meadows, and so much more.
