From museums to villages, Yosemite West has it all

When you book a Yosemite West vacation rental, you're minutes from some of the country's most beloved attractions. The Yosemite Museum, dating from the 1920s, is packed with exquisite exhibits showcasing the area's phenomenal landscapes and sites. Since Yosemite West is located within the gates of the park, you're ideally situated to enjoy everything it has to offer. Head to Yosemite Village if you need the 411 on what's going on, or to check out the Indian Cultural Museum and Garden next door to the visitor's center.

High above, the weather is perfectly fine

Yosemite West is situated at an altitude of 5500 feet, which is considerably higher than the valley itself. This means that when summer arrives, you won't have to deal with stiflingly hot temps when you leave your Yosemite West vacation rental. Instead, you'll notice it's at least 10 to 20 degrees cooler. Winter is generally a mild affair, although snow does accumulate fast once it starts to fall and lasts throughout. The average temperature in the area ranges from 36 to 67 degrees. The occasional summer thunderstorm isn't out of the question, either.
