Getting Around Yosemite on a Budget
If you’re staying in a Magnuson Hotel then you’ll already have a great room for a great price. But there are other ways to save money while visiting Yosemite National Park. Travelling by bus can work out cheaper than using a private car, as drivers are required to pay an entry fee at the park gates. Most local buses terminate at Yosemite Village, and from there you can board a free shuttle bus that travels around Yosemite’s key sites.
Hikes and Picnics: Free Outdoor Fun in Yosemite
There are 800 miles of trails in Yosemite National Park, and the vast majority are free to use. The few exceptions include the hike to the top of Half Dome, which is so popular that permits are given out by seasonal lottery. Yosemite also has masses of scenic picnic spots, so bringing your own lunch is another great way to save money.
