Spanning 1,200 square miles of nature's finest—from the cascading waters of Vernal Falls to the soaring sequoias of Mariposa Grove—Yosemite National Park is larger than life. Just ask Ansel Adams, whose large-format photos of this majestic Sierra Nevada setting helped promote the preservation of the landscape for generations to come. Indeed, this "temple of nature," as naturalist John Muir described it in the 1800s, draws visitors from around the world to worship at Mother Nature's altar.
Head just two hours north of Fresno to the 336-room Yosemite View Lodge, which overlooks the Merced River on the border of the park. Rooms boast a private balcony and a bathtub, for which you'll get a spa basket upon arrival, as well as two queen beds and view of either the mountains or the river. After a day in the park, take a dip in the indoor pool and head back to your room (with kitchenette) to unwind.
Drive 15 miles east to Yosemite Valley, home to one of the country's oldest national parks. Start the adventure with a peek at the continent's highest waterfall, the iconic Yosemite Falls, or seeing Carlon Falls (a rare year-round waterfall). Rent snowshoes and hike up the Crane Flat lookout trail, which offers spectacular 360-degree views of the landscape below.
In the evening, grab a window seat overlooking the Merced at The River Restaurant & Lounge. One of two restaurants at the lodge, this casually upscale eatery dishes up hearty rib-sticking meals and cocktails with sophistication.
