Angel Island State Park is sometimes known as the “Ellis Island of the West” because it was the first place many new immigrants stopped to be processed on their way to the mainland. Visitors to the island today will find that it offers gorgeous views of the sea and will be able to take a 60-minute tram tour.

However, you’ll have to book your trip this summer if you want to enjoy this special combination trip. The two-island tour is only offered until October, so click here to reserve your spot.
