Alcatraz is a small island in San Francisco which originated as a military prison. A lot of history is attached to the place. In 1972, it became a recreational area and a historical landmark. A trip over to Alcatraz is a must if you happen to be in San Francisco. The history and exhibits are the real eye-openers. Have audio tours there to know well about the place. The prison has got a number of interesting tales behind. One has to make bookings well in advance since the trip gets filled weeks before.  The boat trip over is stunning on a beautiful day and the walk around the islands gives you a totally unique perspective.
