Watch 4th July Fireworks from Angel Island


06.28.12

From the issue Fourth-coming Fun

The best (and newest) place to watch fireworks this Fourth of July is smack in the middle of the Bay! For the first time ever, Angel Island State Park will stay open late for fireworks viewing, so get your tickets now—availability is limited! Pack layers, a flashlight, blankets, and folding chairs —special ferries depart from San Francisco's Pier 41 and Tiburon.

On the island, celebrate with live music, craft beers, barbecued Hog Island Oysters, and inventive food at The Cove Café and Cantina. Then hop on a shuttle to Battery Ledyard—Angel Island's premier spot to watch the night sky light up over the Bay, including the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Angel Island is where the fireworks are this Fourth of July, so book your tickets before they're gone!

Do the Diggler: This summer, check out one of the most adventurous ways to tour Angel Island: on a brand new electric Diggler Scooter. Part skateboard, part scooter, and part BMX bike, riding a Diggler is like carving turns on a board—or on skis—because of its low center of gravity and long wheelbase. Highlights include cruising past a restored U.S. Immigration Station, old Army forts, wildflowers and wildlife, and postcard-famous views. More info at angelisland.com.
