"Alcatraz" Alcatraz Tip by kimwen

Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos

I'm quite amazed that Alcatraz is a National Park. There's nothing parkish about the place. The building is so-so but the view of the city from the island is fantastic. No wonder "no one escapes from Alcatraz".

Address: In the middle of San Fracisco Bay
Directions: Alcatraz is reached by ferries of the Blue and Gold fleet from Pier 41
Phone: Blue & Gold (415) 705-5555
