The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Ahwahnee, Yosemite National Park

Where once stood a Miwok village in Yosemite Valley, the Ahwahnee's stacked boulders and heavy beams serve park visitors who carry fat wallets and plan well ahead. (Reservations for the 99 hotel rooms and 24 cottages disappear fast.) For a glimpse of its grand public rooms, reserve a meal or just walk through. Info: (801) 559-4884,
