The Magic of the Holidays at Yosemite National Park


The Magic of the Holidays at Yosemite National Park

The holidays are always a wonderful time of the year, but this year, you may wish to take book a getaway this December to see Yosemite’s holiday décor at Yosemite Valley Lodge and The Ahwahnee ahead of the holiday. Book a stay at one of these properties and make this holiday season one to remember, filled with creative holiday decorations, outdoor adventures, and endless holiday cheer. Make sure to visit the Village Store and Degnan’s Kitchen in Yosemite Village as they are also decorated with festive decor!

Our holiday décor designer Carla has been decorating stores and hotel lobbies in Yosemite 

for more than 30 years. Each year she picks a specific theme for each location. For example, Base Camp Eatery has a rock climbing themed tree; Degnan’s Kitchen has a nutcracker tree and there is a fun community tree at the Village Store made with handcrafted frogs from recycled materials by local children.

There are four small windows along the red carpet entrance to The Ahwahnee each decorated with a winter scene. Carla handcrafted many of the elements including a working wishing well.

We hope you enjoy the holiday décor on your visit to Yosemite National Park this holiday season!
