Get Outdoors in Fresno This Summer!

Here in Fresno, California, there are many things to do, from shopping to nightlife to enjoying the outdoors. In the summer, day or overnight trips to one of the three separate national parks located near Piccadilly Inn Airport are a great way to spend your time in Fresno. You can choose from Yosemite, Sequoia, or Kings National Park to go hiking and experience the nature offered by these parks. Located a couple of hours away from Piccadilly Inn Airport, Yosemite National Park offers everything you could imagine. Within the 1,500 square miles of land, there are six main segments of the park. Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point, Wawona and Mariposa Grove, Tioga Road and Tuolumne Grove, Tuolumne Meadows, and Hetch Hetchy all offer a unique vantage point into Yosemite and include different activities for all ages.

If you want to get a full Yosemite experience, Yosemite Valley activities encompass hiking, biking, horse rides, tours throughout most of the park, different programs to learn about the history of Yosemite and more, and sightseeing. Within Yosemite Valley, you can view Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Happy Isles, and El Capitan, all of which are breathtaking landmarks located within Yosemite National Park. Tours go up to Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove, the former of which can only be reached via shuttle. Yosemite Valley also has multiple areas that can increase your knowledge of the park and its history. The Yosemite Museum includes an Indian Cultural Exhibit and an art gallery, which is separate from a second art gallery, the Ansel Adams Gallery. If you want to learn more about the nature within Yosemite, there is a Wilderness Center as well as different naturalist programs available.

There are hundreds of things to do at Yosemite National Park among any of the six areas.
