How would you like to be close to Yosemite, winter sports and Calaveras Big Trees? Well, when you visit Modesto you are a day trip away from all of these! 

Imagine grabbing breakfast then jumping in your car, having lunch on the valley floor of Yosemite and back in town for dinner. Or taking the family for a day of sledding, skiing or snowboarding and back in time to take a hot shower and then go to dinner. Or even taking your coffee and cocoa to go before a walk surrounded by the world’s largest trees – the giant sequoias – in Calavaras Big Trees State Park and back to in your hotel hot tub before dark.

That’s all possible when you stay, and play, in Modesto.

Modesto offers so many natural and man-made amenities close by. You can set up your home base in Modesto and be right in the middle of day trips to all of the following destinations;
