Yosemite National Park
SR 120 takes you through the majestic Yosemite National Park, filling your drive with dozens of educational and interpretive stops.
Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Calaveras Big Trees State Park is home to the giant sequoias. This is a great rest stop, with picnic areas and miles of hiking to enjoy while passing through. You will find this stop on SR-4 to Monitor Pass on State Route 89.
SR 50 travels through South Lake Tahoe and then connects to highway 395 to Mammoth Lakes. Stop for lunch at one of the cafes, or enjoy a picnic out on one of the numerous public beaches.
If you prefer take major highways to get to highway 395 from Highway 80, traveling through Reno will allow for a plethora of amenities, cheaper gas, and entertaining casinos.
