2 Days   Yosemite National Park, Hearst Castle

Highlights:Experience the miracles of nature and man in one fun two day package. See the towering granite cliffs and stalwart pines of Yosemite. Spend time exploring America’s tallest waterfall, Yosemite falls. Marvel at the vistas that caused early explorers to call Yosemite the “incomparable valley.” After an evening in Fresno, it’s a sunrise journey through America’s most fertile agricultural region to the windswept central coast. Looming off of the mountain cliffs is your morning destination, Hearst Castle. Experienced State of California employees will lead you through every detail of decadence and luxurious elegance of William Randolph Hearst’s sprawling ‘ranch’ above the clouds on ‘La Cuesta Encantada.’
