"See The rock!" Alcatraz Tip by shadowmon

Alcatraz, San Francisco: 291 reviews and 484 photos


Alcatraz is the infamous site of many gangsters, criminals and now, toursits. It is a national park run facility and while you walk through it you can just hear the old sould who have died in this place when it was a prison crying out. A very eerie, spooky place. Lots of uphill walking involved to see the best part of the prison

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