This summer I will do a roadtrip through California and I want to make a stop in the Yosemite national park. How many days should I stay there and what is a good but cheap hotel/motel there? I'll be driving from San Francisco and I was thinking of 2 nights, is this enough or not? Thanks a lot!

    It all depends on what it is you want to do. Two nights would allow you to see the waterfalls and do a couple of short walks. Make sure you stay in the Village area. Summer will be warm. over 5 years ago

    Depending on when in the "Spring" you travel, you'll may have more or less of the Park that you can explore.I think two nights might be sufficient, tho' some would spend a week. You can walk 3 or 4 miles round trip to a grove of Giant Sequoias (not in the Valley), walk up to Vernal Fall or just the footbridge, enjoy the loop walk to Lower Yosemite Fall, wander in one of the Valley meadows, get wet near Bridalveil Fall, stroll up to Mirror Lake (should be full in the spring), and enjoy the views from Tunnel View. When you exit the Park, you'll probably use Hwy 41. Depending on your timing, staying in Oakhurst or in Fresno can work as an overnight between Yosemite and Sequoia. over 4 years ago

    If you stay outside the park, plan to get there by 9am daily or you likely will be in a traffic nightmare. You can see the top spots (Half Dome, the falls) in 1 long day. For hikinf, getting into truly seeing &appreciating this gem, 3 days. I assume you don't intend any backcountry trekking. Just be prepared for crowds! over 4 years ago

    Two nights and 3 days should be enough, on the third day you could leave late morning and head out to San Francisco or the wine country of California. I recommend day one arrival before noon - Yosemite Valley for a breathtaking open-air Valley Floor Tour led by a Yosemite Park Ranger.- After the tour and some lunch, you’ll saddle up for a guided trail ride on mule or horseback next day hiking and biking followed by a big dinner. over 4 years ago
