Yosemite - a Gorgeous Retreat

If you are a very busy person on the go all the time, always working, needing a break, you need a getaway!  I know that after a long year in school or at work, if you accumulate too much stress, you need a break!  So take one!  One place I will always love going to is Yosemite.  It is gorgeous!  Here are some of the reasons why you should go there:

  • An Amazing History

Yosemite was first inhabited by Ahwahneechee Indians.  Then white men came, took it, and made it a state park in California in 1864.  Because of its Indian background, Yosemite has many historical features to discover.  The Ahwahnee hotel is an ancient five star hotel still in use today.  There are also Native American trails to follow and a recreated Indian camp.  These make Yosemite fun and educational for all to learn about the ancient Indian cultures.

  • Entertainment and Amusement

If just relaxing at Yosemite isn't enough, there are many fun activities to enjoy.  There is a pool, an ice cream shop, and a pizza shop all in Curry Village.  There are many gift shops and stores to visit to get souvenirs or just to look around.  There is a river going through housekeeping, so there are also beaches to relax on and you can ride on it on a raft or boat at times when the water's low enough.  Of course, you can go on a hike up Yosemite Falls, Glacier Point, Half Dome, El Capitan, and many other of the mountains.  You can also go on walks through the valley to Mirror Lake, Tenaya Lake, Tuolumne Meadows, and other secret paradises.  All together, Yosemite is a very fun place!

  • Nature

Yosemite is the best place to go for you nature-lovers!  Along with the granite giants surrounding you, you have huge trees speckling the ground with golden sunlight, waterfalls silencing the wind, rivers calmly brushing past, I could go on and on!  From soft sand to rocky shores.  From the saphire sky to the pinecone lined path.  Its truely amazing!  You can never take a bad picture or see any hideous thing there!  Its all just beauty!  Along with that, the wild life there is wonderful.  Squirrels are always scuttling across the dirt.  Majestic deer can be seen in families walking through the trees, or just one beautiful one, all by itself, that can be so breath taking.  Black bears, although pretty rare for a one-time visitor to see, can be found in camps in trees by themselves (they most likely won't hurt you if you don't hurt them) or with their cubs.  So Yosemite is a gorgeous, wonderful place.

So when you're deciding where to go for a family trip or just a simple getaway, make sure Yosemite's on your list.  It would be fun for kids and a relaxing break for parents.  A perfect honeymoon and a wonderful anniversery.  Yosemite is the perfect place for all.  So be sure to go there and have a great time!  If you would like to go to Yosemite, go to http://www.yosemitepark.com/Accommodations.aspx and make your reservations today!  If you have any questions, go ahead and post a comment and I'll be sure to get back to you!
