About Alcatraz: Most people know that Alcatraz was once a world-famous federal penitentiary, but the island’s history before and after the penitentiary era is less well known. For example, few realize that it was also the site of the first American lighthouse on the West Coast and that the island served as a huge harbor defense fort during the Civil War. After the fort became obsolete, the U.S. Army turned the island into a military prison. Following the closing of the penitentiary, Alcatraz became the site of an American Indian protest movement that would change modern American history.

About Angel Island: Angel Island is known as the “Ellis Island of the West”. Between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, immigrants that came to America’s West Coast were processed at Angel Island. They were detained for days, sometimes months or years, while waiting to enter the country. The United States Immigration Station on Angel Island is now a newly renovated museum that offers visitors a chance to learn about this important part of U.S. history. The museum is open for self-guided tours between 11:00am to 3:00pm, Wednesday-Sunday.
