1 week of day hikes with no car camping

any suggestions of how to spend the mere 1 week in yosemite/kings/sequoia area? also open to other areas - we'll be coming from and returning to santa cruz...

the 4-5 day hike is off the menu (happy wife=happy husband), but i loathe the loud car camping sites. so im looking for campsites that are close (a mile?) from trailheads. also looking for day hikes (max around 8 miles) or some easy overnites (around 12 miles) or a 3 day hike (around 18 miles, or shorter with options for day trips from one camp site).

not much time, but im sure we will find lots of beauty (and hopefully avoid the crowds) wherever we go, but any suggestions?

thanks so much,
the happy couple (on our first anniversary!)

ok - looks like we are skipping yosemite due to time restrictions and refusal to spend so many hours in a car. so, any suggestions for us in kings canyon and sequoia areas would be great! thanks!
