Ahhh, the après-Yosemite treat: refuel, reenergize, and reward yourself in the valley’s beautiful setting. But don’t change out of your sweaty hiking gear—it’s part of the dress code at the Pizza Patio in Curry Village. A favorite spot among park staff, the Pizza Patio is just what the doctor ordered after a good hike. It’s not about the pizza (which is pretty good), but rather the atmosphere of hanging out on a spacious wooden patio with a close-range view of Half Dome. Or for a taste of rustic sophistication, shower up and change your socks for a drop-in at The Ahwahnee Hotel, which serves up nature’s decadence along with a classy bar and outdoor patio. The bar’s black-and-white photographs and old-time piano hark back to pre-Gore-Tex days. And if you haven’t seen the dining room, take a peek at its elegant, high-ceilinged wonder. Swanky!
