Yosemite National Park

Lying in the western Sierra Nevada of Northern California, Yosemite National Park is one of the favourite places of American families and tourists which come from all around the world. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, the park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, there can be seen deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and so much more. Besides glacier-carved beauty, Yosemite also showcases North America’s highest waterfall -Yosemite Falls, the world’s tallest uninterrupted granite monolith - El Capitan, and mountains that Ralph Waldo Emerson (an American essayist, lecturer, and poet) described as “unmatched on the globe.” The reason why this is a great park for families is that many of the trails are stroller accessible and easy enough for children to tag along. There are many ways how to spend a day here, from hiking, rafting, fishing, and big-wall rock climbing to camping and simply lounging at some of the hotels.
