Looking for a great place where you can escape for a couple days and get out of the city and into the mountains? If you find yourself traveling the iconic US Highway 395 through the Eastern Sierra then you owe it to yourself to take an extended break in Bishop.
This small town has charm and grace, the community is hospitable and friendly, and the landscape is … well … spectacular! Bishop is within striking distance to the oldest trees(Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest), the highest peak (Mt. Whitney) and the lowest point (Badwater) in the continental US. Not only that, Bishop is set between two of the country’s most impressive National Parks, Death Valley and Yosemite.
Bishop Creek Canyon, a mere 15 minute drive into the Sierra, is the ‘pièce de résistance’ for water fun, summer sun, autumn leaves and winter backcountry skis. Need a lift? Be sure to check the Bishop Creek Shuttle Schedule at www.estransit.com. There are few regions along the eastern Sierra that can match the beauty or deliver the amenities that this magnificent canyon can!
To further whet your whistle, Bishop Creek Lodge serves the best big mug of cold beer and burger, and Cardinal Village Resort dishes up all you can eat stone-fired gourmet pizza Thursday-Saturday on summer nights. Lake Sabrina Boat Landing has the best “eats” view for water lovers.
