“The Rock” has served as a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison and a federal prison and is now a national park. Daily tours via ferry run out of Fisherman’s Wharf, but if you’re going to go to Alcatraz, do the night tour. Nothing compares to watching the sun set across the Golden Gate Bridge with the San Francisco skyline off in the distance. Dress warm.
