Oakhurst is one of California's gold towns. It sits at the junction of Hwy 49, the gold country road, and Hwy 41, the southern gateway to Yosemite. There are many hotel/motels and restaurants for the travelling tourists who want to relive those golden late 1800's (49ers) years of gold being discovered and mined all along the California hillsides.
But, the real draw to Oakhurst today is that Yosemite and all it's natural wonders are close at hand. One of the locations in Oakhurst trying to remember the way it was is the Fresno Flats Historical Park near downtown Oakhurst. Many displays of buildings and vehicles of the old pioneer days and wild west are here, as well as a fine museum of times past.
