Very easy to get to on the ferry ($20 p.p. round trip). You can hike up the mountain, and visit the immigration station. Great views of SF Bay.

A hidden gem, only a few miles from the hustle and bustle of the city and you are away from it all. This sparsely populated island has an interesting history and is host to deer and possibly one female coyote!

The hour long tram tour is very interesting although there is not as much information on the immigrant aspect as I expected. For the best views sit on the right hand side of the tram (as you face forward). Very clean and kept up.

we have to have more than some hours to spend there. The tour was just inside the microbus. It was nice but if you think about enjoying more of that place, you should rent a bike.

Angel Island is the "Ellis Island" of the west coast, the first stop for new immigrants coming to America. There is also some camping here.

Pier 41. I am not sure about Oakland but I think you need to purchase a ticket to Angel island at Pier 41.
