Things to do

Groveland's verdant vineyards

Several attractions lie within easy reach of your Groveland vacation rental. Before embarking on your Yosemite adventure, enjoy a primer in local history at the Groveland Yosemite Gateway Museum. Here, you can learn all about the region's early pioneers and the California Gold Rush, through beautifully preserved artifacts, photos, and newspaper clippings. For a further irresistible taste of Groveland's heritage, be sure to swing by the Iron Door Saloon. Established back in 1852, it's fiercely proud of its status as California's oldest continually operating bar. And for even more decadence, Yosemite Cellars is a beguiling boutique winery, where you can sample crisp whites and fruity reds whilst taking in views of its verdant vineyard.


Explore a world of natural spectacle

Yosemite National Park is a sprawling adventure playground, providing endless enticing opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors. In the sunny summer months, this expanse of breathtaking wilderness can be explored on foot, mountain bike, or horseback. Another thrilling way to take in the sensational scenery is to drift down the Merced River on a raft or inner tube. If you're visiting in winter, simply slip on a pair of skis or snowshoes, and traverse the powder-covered plains at your own pace. If you're hankering for a spot of well-deserved self-indulgence, the park also plays host to thrilling gourmet experiences throughout the year, from wine tastings to lavish festive dinners.


Vibrant seasons in Groveland

Summer days in Groveland tend to be sunny, dry, and warm – ideal conditions for exploring the surrounding countryside. Naturally, Groveland vacation rentals are in high demand at this time of year. The transitional seasons of spring and fall offer more changeable conditions, but daytime temperatures tend to be pleasantly fresh.

Keep quiet and you may catch sight of black bears, red foxes, or Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep.
