* Take a tour of the Valley on the open air tram
* Take the shuttle bus and get off at each stop and look around just there
* Visit the Ahwhanee Hotel
* Take the tour to Glacier Point and back (Tour bus). Half day I think.
* Visit the outdoor Indian exhibit behind the visitor center

For tours see http://www.yosemitepark.com/

Way too late for rafting the Merced River--that's when the Merced River is higher (but not too high!). Usually in July. Sometimes in June and early August.

If a little big of walking is desired.

The Museum/Visitors center.
Lower Yosemite Falls trail, very short, paved, and mostly flat.
Bridal Veil Falls, paved and short. A little steep. Bridal goes all year too.
Happy Isles walk, short and flat, dirt trail.
