My husband and I are going to spend Thanksgiving in SF so we'd like to visit Yosemite on our way there. We will depart the weekend before Thanksgiving and prefer to use the roads east (not the PCH) to get to Yosemite. Does anyone have suggestions for stopovers in any of the places on that route(Bakersfield, Fresno, etc.)? We're interesting in finding a good lunchspot or place to stretch our legs or possibly a place to stayover en route to Yosemite, since we can do the trip in 1-2 days. On our way home from SF, we'll be hitting the PCH route.
