"Island located in the San Francisco Bay which is part of the Golden gate national recreational area. Nicknamed the 'Rock' it was America's ultimate prison! Often descibed as inescapable eep!"

Church Of The Nativity Wedding In June
Church of the Nativity, 210 Oak Grove Ave, Menlo Park, CA 94025-3257, USA   |   June, 2011   |   Attraction

"Alcatraz and history go hand in hand. Once home to some of America's most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. The presence of infamous inmates like Al "Scarface" Capone, and the "Birdman" Robert Stroud helped to establish the island's notoriety. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world's most legendary prisons."

Danielle & Patrick's Wedding
San Francisco   |   November, 2009   |   Attracation(s)/Destination(s)

"*P&D* favorite! Classic and "must do" site for a trip to San Francisco. The history of the island is really fascinating. Starts back in the civil war era, to the prison era and a final chapter on the Indian takeover. There is a brief introduction made by a ranger when you get off the boat, and then I recommend you stop up the ramp to the left and go in and see the movie. Only 17 minutes long, it is a good way to get a summary of its history and life. Then up the hill to the prison. There a lots of paths below the prison that take you around the island and well worth the effort. Walking around the island is fascinating itself. Great views of the city of San Francisco, Angel Island, North and East Bay. The prison tour with headphones is the best tour option! They've done a nice job in having a visitor get the "feel" of prison life. Lots of stories from it's past, and Frank, the ex-prison guard, is still in the store at the end of the tour autographing his book. Much more frail now, I'm sure. Side-note: Make reservations in advance using the website: http://www.alcatrazcruises.com/website/buy-tickets.aspx by: D"
