Alcatraz. Used to be you had to be a really bad character to get a room with a view on The Rock. No longer. Now you just pay a few bucks and take a leisurely boat ride over and simple explore. Truth be told, the accommodations aren’t that great. The rooms are too small, and damn view have a view, something many criminals found out too late, after being sent there for minor infractions such as mass murder and organized crime connections.
Currently, The Rock offers great views of San Francisco as well as an education. You can learn the history of the place and the people who booked permanent rooms there. I think it is a must see for those visiting San Francisco.
