Adventure: Yosemite National Park, CA

13 of 17

California’s sky-high sequoias and surging waterfalls—not to mention Half Dome, the monolithic granite icon immortalized by photographer Ansel Adams—draw their fair share of tour buses, but park ranger Scott Gediman dodges the masses by taking his kids on the Valley Floor Loop Trail, past Yosemite Falls and the base of El Capitán. Bunk down in a wood-floored canvas tent cabin at Curry Village, and head to the grand Ahwahnee Dining Room for its famously over-the-top Sunday brunch.  —Kathryn O’Shea-Evans
