Cal­i­for­nia’s Mam­moth Lakes is a va­ca­tion hot spot all-year round, with un­be­liev­able ski­ing and snow­board­ing in the win­ter months (last sea­son’s Mam­moth Moun­tain was open from Novem­ber 2016 to Au­gust 2017) and all kinds of ad­ven­tures to be had in sum­mer. Yosemite Na­tional Park is first on the list. Just 45 min­utes’ drive from Mam­moth Lakes over Tioga Pass, Yosemite is heaven for those who love be­ing in the great out­doors. An­other place to visit is Bodie State Park, a real, dead ghost town that livens up in the sum­mer months with vis­i­tors want­ing to see what life was like in the heady days when min­ing saw this place boom­ing with 10,000 res­i­dents. Mam­moth’s moun­tain bike park is world class with more trails pop­ping up every year. You can also go hik­ing to Devils Post­pile and Rain­bow Falls, kayak­ing at Mono Lake with its weird and won­der­ful lime­stone tu­fas or fish­ing in one of the many lakes around.
