Alcatraz Island

No trip to San Francisco is complete without a visit to one of the most infamous prisons in the US (and perhaps the world!). The tour is fascinating and worth every penny. As a bonus, the ferry ride over to the island is a treat in itself. However, the tour sells out well in advance so plan ahead. For those last minute travelers (like me!), a few day-of tickets are released each morning but you need to rise early and stand in line.
