Angel Island State Park

by Brie Grossman

Angel Island is the largest island in the San Francisco Bay.  When most people think of islands in the SF Bay they usually think of the infamous Alcatraz.  But Angel Island is pretty famous in its own right.  To visit this park you either have to hop on the ferry from Tiburon or take your own boat or kayak or however you prefer to traverse open waters.  Once you arrive on the island you can either hike, ride a bike, catch the tram or maybe even rent a segway.  There are many picnic areas as well as some camping options.
