  • How Yosemite National Park influences the Valley's economy

    Yosemite National Park attracts about 4 million visitors every year, and those visitors arrive with money to spend. Yosemite is an important economic engine to nearby communities in its "gateway" region within 60 miles of the park. The National Park Service estimates Yosemite generated about $380 million in direct visitor spending at businesses inside and outside the park in 2012, the most recent year for which figures were available (in June 2014).
