Tucked away in the San Joaquin Valley, and less than two hours away from Yosemite National Park, the city of Merced is one of the premier outdoor living destinations in the United States. Centrally located in “The Gateway to Yosemite”, our Merced hotel is only a short distance from many of the city’s most exciting outdoor attractions like Lake Yosemite and Merced Falls.
Guests of our hotel in Merced can explore the beautiful parks within the city limits––don’t miss the Fahrens and Black Rascal Creek parks; if you’re feeling adventurous, a trip to the Great Valley Grasslands State Park is an excellent way to experience the central California countryside.
Families staying at our Merced accommodations will find plenty of educational entertainment at the Castle Air Museum, the Castle Science and Technology Museum, and the Challenger Learning Center. And for more all-ages fun, head over to the Applegate Park and Zoo for a look at some of the city’s natural fauna.
Be sure to set aside plenty of time for exploring the city’s extensive Hmong culture: swing by the Lucky Pho Noodle for authentic Vietnamese eats. Afterwards, cut loose at The Partisan, a favorite club among locals and visitors alike.
