Yosemite tours

Fossil Discovery Center of Madera CountyIt's no wonder why Yosemite is popular with tour groups - the dramatic granite cliffs and thundering waterfalls all make a lasting impression. However, Yosemite is one of many attractions, as there is so much more to see and do in Madera County: California's Gateway to Yosemite. You could craft an entire tour around the attractions of Madera County.

Learn about the animals that roamed the region tens of thousands of years ago at the Fossil Discovery Center while examining mammoths, sabre toothed cats and other prehistoric animals discovered right there.

Go wine tasting along the Madera Wine Trail.

See beautiful paintings, stunning photography and inspired sculpture at the many galleries throughout Madera County.

Take in a melodrama or comedy at the Golden Chain Theatre, which has been open for nearly half a century.

There are even more ideas; The Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau will help you craft a fun itinerary including these attractions and more, plus delicious meals, perfect lodging and anything else you could want.
