Scenic Viewpoint
“Drive out Glacier Point Road from the Yosemite Cabin. We recommend stopping at Taft Point for the 1-mile, low-angle hike out to the most stunning views of El Capitan and other special features in the Valley. Not many tourists do this! ”

Historic sites

State / Provincial Park
“This is a must-see, especially if you have kiddos. It’s a preserved historic town with the streets shut down to cars. Our kids always enjoyed the jail, bowling alley and candy store where they will make some of the candy they sell. ”

“What a fun day to spend with the family. Columbia has everything from good food, a couple sweet shoppe stores, gift stores, a stagecoach ride around the center of town, candle dipping, old timer photo booths and a blacksmith. The parking is free and the people are friendly!”

Historic Site
“If you want to have the kids giggle, take them to "Jackass Hill" to see Mark Twain's cabin. To get them ready, we have an audible book of "The Celebrated Jumping Frogs of Calaveras County" by Mark Twain. My guys (now they are grown men) love to drive to "Jackass Hill" - weird maybe but I loved to hear them roar with laughter every time. ”
