Take the day trip out hereon the ferry. They leave mid morning and cruise you right over. Bring walking shoes, something tasty to drink, and a picnic, and hike around to the side of the island facing the city. You will be rewarded with the most spectacular views of downtown, and there are a couple little beaches where you can post up and enjoy the sun. There are also some historical buildings to investigate from its days as an immigration check point. It is a great day out for a change of pace.

My favorite way to get to Angel Island is by kayak. Book a trip with Sea Trek in Sausalito. Or head to Tiburon and take the ferry. Once you're there walk or bike the circumference trail for fantastic views of the bay. If you plan ahead you can reserve a campground.

This is a beautiful place to camp - and you can get there on public transportation! We took a ferry from the city, hiked a couple miles to the other side of the island, and set up camp. It was terrific to feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness, but also within site of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines.

A beautiful little island just off the coast of Tiburon in Marin County. The ferry from San Francisco takes 30 mins to an hour. A great place for a day trip, you can also apply for camping spots. Know though that these are hard to come by!

The island was home to military bases and has quite a bit of interesting history about it. It is a great to visit for the beautiful scenery and quiet surroundings.

Bring your bike (or rent one on the island) and take a cycle around the perimeter road. Not only are there awesome abandoned buildings (they're not all completely abandoned though-- no trespassing), a reminder of the island's history, but the views of the city are spectacular.
Be sure to catch the ferry back at the end of the day. I wouldn't want to get stuck there!Recommended for:History Buffs
