EXPLORE | Yosemite National Park

IMG_8504 (2).JPG

Yosemite National Park, in the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges in California, is one of the most well known National Parks in the United States AND one of the most beautiful! Just 4 1/2 north of Los Angeles this National Park NEEDS to be on your summer vacation bucket list.

I recently visited this beautiful park with my boyfriend and we were seriously blown away by the tranquility that it put us both in. We ended up camping at Wawona campgrounds, which is one of the few "first come, first serve" campgrounds in the park October through March. Most of the other's are reportedly booked up to five months in advance, so we made sure that we got there early enough to find a space for the night since it was 'first come, first serve' when we visited. We were so lucky because we did end up getting one of the last spots available (see pic directly above) and arrived at 10:00 am. Our site was equipped with a picnic table, fire pit and parking spot right next to the water under a canopy of towering pine tree's.

As for the other things to do in the area with you time - the list is really endless and depends on the time you have to spend there. Please, watch my video below and see the links below to start planning your personal trip of a lifetime to this BEAUTIFUL oasis.

OKAY - this place is SO cool and such a fun spot to hit up with your crew to be entertained all day or all night (heck - maybe even both). The first time I went to this brewery was on a Saturday night, and it was crazy busy. I was kinda worried because when you see a long long just to get in a place that usually means that you are going to be crammed inside and never get a drink (you know what I am talking about). HOWEVER, I was completely wrong!!! The brewery is pretty much always busy, but there is no need to worry about feeling cramped - it is HUGE. They have two large areas with seating, an upstairs area that overlooks everything and a large area outside lot that usually has a food truck selling all kinds of yummy bites. The only downside about the outdoor area is that you can't bring your beer (boooo!).

**Outside food is welcome, and there are a number of great locations in the neighborhood that offer take out too**


They also have a wide assortment of beers and an awesome FREE tour where you get to try them all out. I really liked this because you can decide what your fav is before even spending a dime!
