Ulysses Press's Weekend Adventure Getaways guides break the mold of traditional travel guides to meet the needs of today's active travelers. Combining descriptive ideas for both traditional travel and outdoor recreation, these guides allow modern-day adventurers to incorporate the elements they want into the ultimate personalized getaway. Weekend Adventure Getaways Yosemite Tahoe features complete camping details of 42 campgrounds with descriptions of setting and services, and recommends over three dozen hotels, resorts, and bed-and-breakfasts that cover a range of budgets. The book details the area's top attractions and popular activities for those with and without children, including 67 hiking trails, 14 biking trails, and 26 ski resorts. It offers an extensive survey of all the area's recreational options including fishing, boating, golf, rock climbing, and horseback riding. Author Richard Harris also tells when, where, and how to enjoy Yosemite and Tahoe's outdoor adventures, with specific details on best locations, difficulty of the activity, and local outfitters that rent necessary equipment. Also features sidebars that relate interesting facts and suggest fun things to do, like taking an authentic stagecoach ride through Pioneer Yosemite Historic Center. Over 150 photographs capture everything from beaches and wilderness landscapes to historic sites and charming inns.
