Alcatraz Island is one of the most iconic and feared locations in the United States. Located in San Francisco's bay, the island was home to the most notorious and maximum security prison in United States history. Used as a military fort during the American Civil War, it was then transformed into a high-security federal prison, with the first inmates arriving in 1933. Alcatraz's hallowed walls have held some of the most dangerous criminals, including Al Capone and Robert Stroud, known as "The Birdman." Alcatraz Island is a popular visitor spot fortunate enough to have survived its tumultuous past. Visitors can explore the prison cellhouse and many other insightful exhibits, such as tours to the original lighthouse and gardens. There are kayak tours and exclusive boat tours that take you around the island, offering some breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Alcatraz Island is a must-see for any traveler, both for its fascinating history and for its incredible views.
