If you look out our kitchen window, you’ll see it. A monstrous island rising out of the water of the San Francisco Bay. So big in fact, you won’t be able to miss it. While it appears to be secluded, after one click on Google you’ll quickly realize this island has quite a lot to offer. Abundant hiking trails. Sweeping panoramic views of both the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco’s downtown skyline.
And of course, lots and lots of fresh air.
If you’re in the city and are looking for a quick adventure, Angel Island is the way to go. It’s a lovely escape from the city hustle and allows you to sync back up with nature without getting too far away. Not to mention, unless you own a boat or kayak, you’ll have to hop aboard a ferry from Pier 41 in San Francisco, providing for the perfect excuse to sail across the Bay.
