A vacation in California would never be complete without a tour of Yosemite National Park.

Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite Valley is one of California’s prime tourist spots. Yosemite National Park is home to El Capitan, the world’s largest exposed chunk of granite and a highlight of most Yosemite tours. Other Yosemite attractions include Lower Yosemite Falls, Upper Yosemite Falls (considered to be North America’s highest waterfall) and three groups of huge old growth sequoia trees (considered to be some of the oldest living things in the world).

Most Yosemite tours from San Francisco are fully escorted by knowledgeable guides who help you to fully appreciate the history and uniqueness of this World Heritage Site. Over three and half million visitors descend upon Yosemite Park each year so a guided Yosemite Valley tour provides the best opportunity to explore everything this amazing park has to offer. Come breathe in the fresh country air and witness spectacular rainbows created within the mists of Yosemite Falls.

Yosemite History

Yosemite Valley was discovered by a Swiss immigrant named John Muir in the 1860s when he migrated to California after finishing college in Minnesota. On his arrival to San Francisco during the period of the Gold Rush, John Muir began to ask the local towns folk about the most wonderful place in the area, to which he got the answer, ‘The Sierras’, where Yosemite Valley rests. Muir wrote several papers about the beauty of Yosemite Valley and these write-ups reached the US Congress in the capital of Washington, DC.

Because of John Muir’s documents, in 1890 congress was moved to declare Yosemite National Park as the world’s second national park. Yosemite took its name from the local tribe in the area, and its Ahwahnee origin literally means ‘grizzly bear’. Yosemite National Park includes awesome mountain formations, verdant meadows, teeming wildlife and huge sequoia trees, natural wonders which have survived since the Ice Age.

El Capitan, Lower & Upper Yosemite Falls

El Capitan, a granite monolith, is a featured rock formation at Yosemite National Park. It is the largest chunk of granite in the world, which rests on the Yosemite Valley floor and rises up to an elevation of over 3600 feet. During clear weather, expert mountain climbers scale the smooth surface of El Capitan. The Cathedral Rocks, just beside the El Capitan and fronting the Merced River, protrude into the valley in three areas and is home to the imposing Bridal Veil Falls.

The Lower Yosemite Falls is the most famous and most reachable waterfall in the park, rising to nearly 330 feet and originating from the bigger Upper Yosemite Falls which measures 1410 feet high. Combined, these two waterfalls are considered to be the highest waterfalls in the entire North American continent.

Yosemite Wildlife

Various wildlife can be seen in Yosemite valley including falcons, vultures, timber wolves, black bears and a host of mule deer, to name a few. Aside from the mountain goats, chipmunks, and squirrels, the Yosemite Valley is home to almost 200 varieties of birds, 60 different species of animals, and more than 30 species of trees. Yosemite National Park is also a virtual sanctuary of interesting and unique flora and fauna.

It’s impossible to provide information on all the great wineries in Sonoma Wine Country. After all, there are literally hundreds waiting to be discovered. In fact, it’s difficult to list all the names and locations without taking up pages of space. But the Russian River area might be a good place to start sampling the great wines here.

Instead of asking about things to do in Los Angeles, it may be better to ask what’s not to do.

Visitors from around the world come to the “City of Angels” for many, many different reasons. While many vacationers to the Los Angeles county area come to visit Disneyland or to experience the magic of Hollywood, more than a few visitors travel to Los Angeles California to try their luck in the movie industry.

Vacationers and fans of movie celebrities view Hollywood and Beverly Hills as important “must-see” destinations. For these movie buffs, if you haven’t seen the Hollywood sign, the Walk of Fame or the mansions of the stars in Beverly Hills, then you haven’t experienced Los Angeles California.

Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills is truly a city of wealth beyond compare. It’s a great place to window shop but if you can afford it, don’t miss shopping in one of the exclusive stores on Rodeo Drive (pronunciation sounds more like “no way oh” instead of “rodeo” where you “ride the bull”). Beverly Hills hotels are very high-class so start saving your money now if you want to spend the night here. Make your reservations well ahead of time. Of course, the food in the various top-shelf restaurants is exquisite but prices do reflect the area you are in. Some of the “big name” Beverly Hills restaurants to check out are Spagos, La Scala, Polo Lounge and Regent Beverly Wilshire.


Every visitor to Los Angeles California should make a point to see the famous Hollywood sign standing on the side of Hollywood Hills. The Hollywood sign began as an advertisement for housing and has become a landmark icon of the movie industry that is recognized by people around the world.

Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

The other location that might be at the top of your “must see” list in the Hollywood area is Grauman’s Chinese Theater, accurately billed as “the most famous movie theater in the world.” Grauman’s Chinese Theater was used to premiere Hollywood’s most talked-about movies but the building itself is beautiful enough to be one of Hollywood’s top tourist draws.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

Most visitors to Los Angeles California make a concerted effort to visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard, if only to be able to say that they’ve walked where the stars walked. Other tourist favorites in the area are Mulholland Drive, Laurel Canyon County Store and Hollywood Bowl, the famous venue for music performances and another important icon of Los Angeles California.

Sony Pictures & Universal Studios

While you are in the Los Angeles area you may want to take a tour of some of the giants in the movie industry including Sony Pictures and Universal Studios. Both are constantly busy with the production of movies, television shows and commercials and both offer excellent studio tours. Tour guides make the experience enjoyable and educational at the same time.

Santa Monica Pier

There are plenty of Los Angeles attractions that have little to do with Hollywood or the movie industry. For example, one of the highlights of a trip to the Los Angeles is Santa Monica Pier, now famous for its entertainment venues, excellent dining options and wonderful specialty shops. There is no admission charge at Santa Monica Pier where you can leisurely stroll along and experience exceptional musicians, artists and street performers. Santa Monica Pier is also one of California’s most amazing places for watching the coastal sunset.

Malibu California

When you are in southern California you may want to visit incredible Malibu, known for its beautiful landscape and California beaches. This area is also recognized as Los Angeles’ most famous residential area of the rich and famous. Malibu offers plenty of recreational opportunities including swimming, fishing and shopping in many of the beachfront stores.

Caravan’s All Inclusive California Tours

Places like Hollywood and Beverly Hills in Los Angeles are included as part of Caravan Tours’ 8-day, all inclusive California Tours, which are exceptionally priced, starting at just $1,395.
