Top Reasons to Visit Sonora Inn

  • Guest rooms were remodeled in 2012 with new carpeting, beds, and flat-screen TVs. Floral linens and white shutters retain the rooms’ elegant country style.
  • The hotel is 5 miles from the gold-rush-era town at Columbia State Historic Park, and about an hour from Yosemite National Park.

Sonora, California: Former Gold-Mining Town Close to Yosemite National Park

Located about two hours east of the San Francisco Bay Area is Sonora, a small town tucked along the Sierra Nevada in California’s Gold Country. Learn about the area’s gold-rush history at the nearby Columbia State Historic Park, which contains buildings from the 1850s, a century-old stagecoach, and saloons with sarsaparilla and piano music.

Sonora is about an hour’s drive from Yosemite National Park, the third most visited national park behind the Great Smoky Mountains and the Grand Canyon. While some roads in Yosemite close in the winter, you can reach Badger Pass Ski Area, popular with both downhill and cross-country skiers.
