For our last pre-trip activity, we were invited to tour the Angel Island Immigration Station. Located in San Francisco Bay, the Angel Island Immigration Station served as an immigration port between 1910 and 1940. Approximately 500,000 immigrants from 80 countries were processed, detained, and/or interrogated at the site.
The day started with an early ferry ride to Angel Island, then we hiked up to the Immigration Station. The views from the Island were stunning.
