Alcatraz (San Francisco, California)

10.26.2012- Alcatraz, the infamous prison off the coast of California was once an infamous prison.  Now it’s most well known as the top tourist attraction in San Francisco.  Often referred to as “The Rock”–and for good reason, it more or less is one–it served as a federal prison from 1933-1963 and some of the most notorious prisoners of the US were housed there.  Visiting it can feel a bit creepy at times as you walk the halls of the prison, but it’s a must-see on any trip to San Francisco.
