Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary

We toured Alcatraz aka "The Rock" when my mother came to visit in December 2003. We had a great time.  From San Francisco you take a ferry over to the island.  You are able to tour the grounds and the inside of the prison.  It is a self guided audio tour that gives you a very detailed history of the prison.  I enjoyed it very much and would like to visit again.
