"Alcatraz" Alcatraz Tip by Suzanimal
Alcatraz, San Francisco: 291 reviews and 484 photos
You should really take a trip to Alcatraz during your visit. Alcatraz was once the home of Al Capone and the Bird Man of Alcatraz, among others. The trip includes an audio tour for a few dollars more and I would definitely reccommend the audio portion. The ride out, by ferry, is wonderful and scenic in and of itself.
Cost is typically less than $20 (more in the $15 - $17 range when you purchase tickets from the Parks Department Website - http://www.nps.gov/alcatraz/ )
During the summer you can take a night tour to add a special creepiness to the whole experience.
