Yosemite National Park
Planners looking to book a retreat, teambuilding weekend, or intensive training seminar should consider truly getting away from it all and heading to Yosemite National Park. Yosemite’s Half Dome rises to a height of almost 5,000 feet above the valley floor, and attracts hikers, rock climbers, outdoor enthusiasts and nature photographers from all over the world. But the area that surrounds it also draws numerous conference and seminar attendees to a handful of resorts. The AAA Four Diamond Ahwahnee is probably the most well-known of the area’s lodging options, with six meeting rooms, 123 guest rooms, and four parlor rooms. Another option is Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite, located two miles from the park. On-site, planners will find 297 rooms and suites, 15,000 square feet of interior meeting space, several outdoor areas and a LEED-Certified conference facility—all surrounded by verdant forests.
