Alcatraz Island
📍 From Ferry, United States
Alcatraz Island, located in the San Francisco Bay in Tiburon, United States, is world renowned as the site of one of the most secure former federal prisons in history. After its closure in 1963, Alcatraz went on to become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States, with over 1.5 million visitors yearly. Explore the old prison grounds, boasting original cells and exhibits, and marvel at the stunning surrounding beauty of the San Francisco Bay as you wander around the island. On the island you can go on guided audio tours and attend events from music and talks to night tours, as well as snapping shots of the iconic birds of Alcatraz, including cormorants and western gulls. Enjoy an unbeatable view of the city skyline from the island’s beaches, and make sure to bring a jacket, as the temperature is much cooler than mainland San Francisco!
