The Yosemite area of California is found in the Central
Valley of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This once arid
desert plain now boasts some of the richest farmlands in the
USA because of the liberal use of irrigation. The
Central Valley is 50 to 100 miles wide (90 - 150 km) and is
covered with farms, orchards and vineyards.
From Bakersfield, just east of Las Angeles, to Yosemite,
nearly 200 miles north, there is no road traversing the
Sierra Nevada Mountains from east to west.
Yosemite Vacation Rentals
Vacation rentals in the Yosemite and Pinecrest areas of the
Central Valley regions consist mainly of mountain
vacation cabins. Some of the cabins are close to ski
resorts such as the Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, while others are
close to Pinecrest Lake. Also available to rent by
owner in the Yosemite area are spacious vacation homes,
ideal for retreats or family reunions. So if you feel
like a mountain, get-a-way, the Yosemite area of California
is a good choice for your vacation.
Try renting from a
private owner in the Yosemite Pinecrest regions of the
Sierra Nevada Mountains for a more affordable
holiday with better amenities than a hotel can provide.
