The National Park system is indeed a great asset for all vacationers. One of the most famous, Yosemite National Park, is home to some of the most spectacular natural wonders the continental US has to offer. The park is more than just hiking trails and signs reminding you to not feed the bears.
If the idea of camping in the wilderness seems romantic but not romantic enough to pitch the tent, check out this smart A-frame cabin. It’s perfect for pretending to camp. The creek running by, mountains in the background, and enormous pines will all feel authentic and rustic. You’ll have the modern conveniences like a kitchen and queen bed. If you really want to feel like you’re roughing it, the fire pit or grilling area and sky lights can help you cook an outdoor meal and feel like you’re sleeping under the stars.
When it’s time to get into nature, check out some of the unique features of the area. Mono Lake, a shallow saline desert lake, lies just north of Yosemite. This amazing natural wonder is an ecosystem that has baffled scientists with his extreme animals. The science is amazing, but the scenery is breathtaking.
If you plan to meet the rest of the family for spring break in Yosemite, this luxury cabin with 3 king suites and space for 14 guests is the perfect place for your base camp. Family friendly features include an outdoor kitchen, game room including pool table, televisions in every bedroom, and a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops. You can pack in the cousins and all this entertainment is an easy rain-out contingency plan.
Yosemite has hundreds of waterways for kayaking, fishing, and other water sports. Early spring may be still too cool for getting totally wet. Take your family on a hiking tour of waterfalls over the park. Maybe you can get your own photos of double rainbows in the mist.
