Mariposa is the gateway town to Yosemite National Park, home to old-fashioned restaurants, vineyards and historical Californian museums. Need somewhere to rest your head? Stay at one of these top hotels, bookable on Culture Trip.

The charming Wild-West town of Mariposa, first settled in 1849, is known as one of California’s Gold Rush towns. The shutter-heavy main street with its shops, restaurants and bars looks like a film set from a Western. Beyond, the town is on the fringes of Yosemite, making it the perfect base for hiking, fly fishing, kayaking and other outdoor adventures. Here are the best hotels in town.
