I got to Angel Island, along with my nephew, his soon to be bride, his parents and a large number of his friends via a boat from San Francisco. The trip was great as we passed Alcatraz Island and settled into a little cove on Angel Island.
Angel Island is sometimes referred to as the "Ellis Island of the West". Many of the immigrants from Asia were processed through here. The place where they were processed and housed, along with most of the island, has been made into a state park.
My trip here, though was not so much to tour as it was to attend a picnic to celebrate my nephews upcoming wedding. We had the picnic at Ayala Cove near where the boat from San Francisco docked. It was quite beautiful and a great setting for a picnic.
- In a nutshell:Beautiful place with an interesting history
There is a 5 mile hiking trail on Angel Island. It is not a very easy trail as it rises several hundred feet in... more travel advice
