"I escaped The Rock !" Alcatraz Tip by Tom400C

Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos

by Tom400C

It's really scary seeing how all the prisoners had to live here. The small cells, the D block. I know they were criminals but I couldn't help but feel sorry for the people who were once locked up here. Thank goodness I got to go back to my hotel.

For people with reduced mobility there's a car that goes up to the main building every hour.
