"Alcatraz - book in advance!" Alcatraz Tip by martystagram
Alcatraz, San Francisco: 292 reviews and 488 photos
Well worth a visit - I arrived to Pier 41 to book my ticket over and found I had to wait 5 days. That was fine for me as I had intended to go later during my holiday.
It is possible to queue for standby tickets and I heard that you can also get ticket through the different tour companies operating in the area - but they might cost more.
Alcatraz is fascinating and the audio tour is very informative (and quite amusing when you watch people back tracking because they have walked too quickly!).
Alcatraz has an eerie feel to it - and no surprise when you actually see what it was like for inmates.
Address: In the middle of San Fracisco Bay
