Butterfly Creek Winery and Vineyards is set on 200 acres adjoining the Sierra Foothills, yet only 45 minutes driving time from the borders of Yosemite National Park. When visiting the winery, plan a picnic lunch next to their own bubbling "Butterfly Creek."
Ice Skating at Curry Village
Open daily through March 2022 (conditions permitting)

Yosemite Museum and Indian Village
While most people only think of Yosemite's natural wonders, the Sierra Nevada region in and around Yosemite has been inhabited by native people for more than 3,000 years. You can learn all about the first peoples of the valley at the Yosemite Museum and Indian Village. The museum displays artifacts, and docents are on hand to give demonstrations and answer questions. Behind the building are some bark-covered dwellings, built in the traditional style used by the Miwok people who once lived in the area, as well as their later, Euro-American-style buildings. The museum is free and conveniently located in Yosemite Village.
