Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Mariposa County is a popular destination in Central California, known for its natural beauty, historic sites, and outdoor activities.
The county’s biggest draw is the iconic Yosemite National Park, one of the most popular parks in the United States. The park’s 747,956 acres (3,029 square km) feature towering mountains, gushing waterfalls, and huge meadows. With plenty of hiking, rock climbing, and guided tour options, the park is a vast playground for outdoor lovers.
Our visit last May 2023 resulted in social media coverage, editorial coverage and a vlog about our time in the region.
