"Visit Alcatraz -- I didn't,..." Alcatraz Tip by DrewV

Alcatraz, San Francisco: 291 reviews and 484 photos


<font face=verdana>Visit <font color=slategray><b> Alcatraz</b><font color=black> -- I didn't, so I'm relying on your judgment.</font>
<font face=verdana>Err... San Francisco has a lot of things to see, and when you go for a weekend, chances are that you'll miss something. I for one missed Alcatraz. It's the old inescapable Federal prison on the island in the middle of the bay (think <i>Chateau d'If</i> from the <i>Comte de Monte Cristo</i>). I've heard it's crazy windy. As stated above, I haven't been.</font>

Address: Pier 33, Alcatraz Landing,San Francisco, California 94111
Directions: <font face=verdana>In the middle of the bay. I would recommend taking a boat. As opposed to swimming.</font>
