Choosing a Wyndham Worldwide Hotel for Your Yosemite Stay
Wyndham Worldwide’s Yosemite National Park hotels are mostly under the Travelodge brand, and offer reliable, affordable two-star accommodation that is perfect for families. Useful in-room facilities such as fridges, microwaves and extra beds will help to make travelling with children a little easier, and depending on which Wyndham Worldwide hotel you choose you might have a games room a swimming pool, a spa tubs and a sauna on site.
Exploring Yosemite with Children
If your children love nature and the outdoors, they’ll adore Yosemite National Park. The park has many miles of hiking trails to be travelled and even little legs will be able to manage some of the shorter trails. Try the popular route to Lower Yosemite Falls from Yosemite Village, or walk in the shade of ancient giant sequoia trees at Mariposa Grove. Get further off the beaten track to spot some of Yosemite’s iconic wildlife, including eagles, deer, ground squirrels and bighorn sheep.
Organised Activities for Yosemite Visitors
Give older children their first taste of rock climbing, horse riding or rafting, or encourage them to learn more about the park in the Yosemite Junior Ranger programme. Little kids can have a go too – there’s a special Little Cubs programme for under-sevens.
Yosemite on a Budget
Wyndham Worldwide’s Yosemite hotels offer great value for money, but there are plenty of other ways you can save while visiting the park. Try using the local YARTS buses instead of driving – they’ll take you straight to Yosemite Village, and you won’t have to pay the park entry fee imposed on private vehicles. From Yosemite Village you can take a free shuttle bus to many of Yosemite Valley’s most famous sights.
