Room With A View

img_3734Our views out our windows are taken in sometimes for granted and sometimes with admiration of the beauty that unfolds before us.  At Alcatraz Federal Prison only a few prisoner were lucky enough to have this view.

San Francisco has daily tours run by Alcatraz Cruises taking off near Pier 39 at Fishermen’s Wharf that takes you to the island for a self guided tour that unfolds such an incredible piece of the San Francisco history.  Additionally, you have the bonus of seeing the city skyline, Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate from a different perspective.  A beautiful sight to behold.  Some visits even add the extra bonus of sailboats skimming across the bay for race or leisure or a sight of the cargo ships coming in and out of the bay.

Plan your trip, make reservations and pack a lunch.  Make it a family day  and enjoy  of a wonderful outing full of history.
