With many people road-tripping to make the most out of the July 4th break and summer vacation, one option has emerged as the most popular and hassle-free way to visit some of the largest trees on earth. Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias in Yosemite National Park recently reopened following three years of restoration to save the lives of the trees. The Gold Line, the Amtrak San Joaquin train, and Yosemite Area Regional Transit System (YARTS) bus take visitors from Pasadena directly to the park and the big trees. Once in Yosemite Valley, you can ride the free shuttle bus to iconic locations. As an alternative, take a guided bus tour bus or transportation via jeep or SUV.
If you’re headed to Yosemite National Park, why endure time behind the wheel? Adventure with your eyes on nature instead of the road. Here are some reasons to take public transportation or private tour and why it’s a simply unbeatable option.
- It is an efficient way to get around to the destinations on your bucket list. No traffic, no hassle and no parking issues.
- Adventure the scene with your eyes, someone else watches the road.
- Less tiring. The tour takes you directly to important sites.
- Meet other interesting travelers.
- Tour drivers are informed experts on the area. They know Yosemite. They can take you on an unforgettable journey, providing you with history, current information and fun facts.
Therese Williams, Public Relations Director from Visit Yosemite Madera County said, “Visiting Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias in Yosemite National Park to see the biggest trees on earth should be on everyone’s “bucket list.” Amtrak San Joaquin train and YARTS bus make travelers’ visits to the National Park both relaxing and unforgettable.”
With no time spent behind the wheel, you can create lasting memories and enjoy the road.
