  Alcatraz - as seen from a 2 short distance
by orke

geez...its sooo nice to see it from pier but when u actually take the ferry there (10 usd) u find out its actually prety boring to walk there...not so nice to see from the inside...:-)

plus when u buy ticket to ferry at the morning u leave at 3 -4 pm- just 2 much...


Unique Suggestions: dont go

Fun Alternatives: walk that area, see the prison from far ...say to yourself "wow....lovely" and continue to walk around there its a really nice area...spend the money in one of the restaurants there or buy winney the pooh underwear at the disney shop...lol...costs the same
