San Francisco: Alcatraz Part 1

Another spot that one cannot miss when visiting San Francisco ~ Alcatraz Island.  However, if you would like to visit it during peak tourist season you have to book your ticket in advance.  There is only one company operating the ferry that is authorized to carry you to the island.  Anita and I were lucky to get ticket for only a day ahead.

This is one of the best places Anita has been to, she told me.  The audio tour (which is included in the price for the ferry) should win an award if it hasn’t yet.

  1. I’ve lived here my entire life and I’ve never been to Alcatraz. Not that I haven’t wanted to, it just hasn’t happened yet.
