No longer a prison for some of America's most dangerous offenders, Alcatraz is part of the National Park Service and is a must-see for visitors to the city. Visitors to the island will certainly be captivated by its history and its incredible beauty. A photo opportunity awaits behind every corner. Also, dress in layers (even during the summer months) because the island can be breezy, and the inside of the prison is cold and damp. Ferries to Alcatraz depart from Pier 33 and are run by Alcatraz Cruises.

it was interesting to be in an old jail, but it was kinda scary. i did injoy myself while i was there though. i travel a lot and i think this was one of the best places yet. it deserves a hearty WOW!!!!!!!!
It wasn't easy to get a ticket to this well known penitentiary but the whole experience was worth it. I felt eerie walking up and down the hallways, trying to imagine what it must have been like being locked in prison on such an isolated island.
I took the liberty to wander around and admired the beautiful scenery around the island while enjoying lots of fresh air and sunshine. The ferry ride to and from Alcatraz was very pleasant.
