Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos

  from the ferry
by steffini

I've been living in SF for more than a year and finally went to Alcatraz.
Went into Al Capone's cell.
It is great to see the dummies made by the 3 inmates who escaped from Alcatraz. Not as good as the movie "Escape from Alcatraz" though.

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