When you go on a romantic vacation, your loved one and you want to make the most of it. It doesn’t matter where you go, you need to feel like you’ve gotten the best value for your money. Yosemite is one of the most romantic and adventurous places on earth, with its beautiful scenic views and amazing experiences. Make the most of it for your twosome by trying out the following experiences.
Take a Trip to the Mirror Lake
If you love hiking and seeing beautiful sites, the Mirror Lake is the place to visit. The trail is relatively easy, unless you come across the icy patches during the winter, and it can even be accessed by wheelchair. It gets its name from the reflection of the mountains and trees in the area while the water is calm. It’s a reflective place and would really make an excellent proposal spot.
Have a Night Out Camping
There are some excellent spots for those wanting to camp out. In fact, there are 1,500 camping spots to choose from, but you do need to make sure you are in a designated area. Camping will give you the opportunity to explore the wilderness. Make sure you have the right permits for this, and get out on the trails for a romantic adventure.
Go Panning for Gold
It’s not often that you get to go out in a genuine hunt for gold, but you can at Yosemite. There are various spots where people have been in the hope to get rich quick, and there are still spots where you will pick up something. Some of the areas even give lessons, but in others you can pan for free. Even if you don’t get lucky, it’s a great way to spend an afternoon together doing something slightly different.
