"You should try to visit..." Alcatraz Tip by Psychokiwi

Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos


You should try to visit Alcatraz. If you don't atleast take a picture of it.
Knowing that the biggest criminals used to live there is cool. Machine Gun Kelley, Al Capone, and Robert Stroud, 'the Birdman of Alcatraz' were some of the famous inmates here. If you prefer a different language to take the tour, you can request it. There were some Germans that went along with my group and they had tape players that conducted the tour in German.

Address: Pier 33, Alcatraz Landing,San Francisco, California 94111
Directions: If you don't know, Alcatraz is on an island. You can see it from the shores of the main city.
