To take a look at the happenings in Tuolumne County, we’ll zoom in on three areas: Yosemite National Park, Gold Country and High Sierra.

Yosemite

Groups looking for the ultimate Yosemite adventure can catch a bird’s-eye view of Yosemite National Park with Yosemite Flights Tours. With flights out of Columbia airport, choose from packages that range from sunset flights to soaring over El Capitan and Half Dome. Or check off two national parks at once with a morning flight over Yosemite while en route to Death Valley. yosemiteflighttours.com

At Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging in Groveland, sleep in new Conestoga wagons for the ultimate rustic and unique Old West experience. However, don’t fret because there are modern features like Keurig coffee makers and air conditioning. yosemitepinesrv.com

Tuolumne Trails offers rustic conference rooms with views of the Tuolumne River Canyon, cozy accommodations, trails to hike, agility courses, hay rides, and a heated pool. While the summers at this camp are filled with special needs programs, the fall, winter and spring offer some of the finest times to book a retreat or meeting. tuolumnetrails.org

Gold Country

Inner Sanctum Cellars expanded its footprint in Tuolumne County with the acquisition of the Columbia Nursery and Florist property in Columbia. With the purchase came a small café that is reopening with a tasting room for Inner Sanctum Cellar wines and an events venue. The owners envision the property to be everything from a wedding venue to a music venue with the wines and winery being at the center. innersanctumcellars.com

High Sierra

Black Oak Casino Resort has launched its new outdoor concert venue, Westside Pavilion, with summer concert series that kicked off in summer 2018 with world-renowned acts like Justin Moore, Smokey Robinson and Rick Springfield. blackoakcasino.com

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
