Alcatraz prison

Alcatraz is a small island across from the city of San Francisco. It used to be a place for the criminals who had committed a very serious crime, such as Al Capone. Now this place has become a tourist spot. It is very cold there and it's really even not far from the city, but this place makes you feel a bit creepy and lonely at the same time. This place is pretty old but they are doing a very great job to preserve a lot of old buildings and old facilities. It's like a museum where you can walk around and explore on your own. The museum provides the tourists with all the information one could need and also with information assistant if necessary. For example, the assistant narrates about this place and also guides you around where to go. There is a very well done graphic map that keeps you from getting lost. Is it a fun place to go? No, I think this place would be more educational and adventurous. When I got out of this place I felt that, I will never do anything wrong and end up in the prison like

this for sure. You can spend more than 2 hours within this place and there is an interesting exhibition about prisoner’s life located at the basement of the main building and also a gift shop. The way how to get there is very easy and convenient. There is always a boat
at Pier39, that leaves every 30 minutes to take you there, and you can spend the whole
day on the island but make sure that you come back for the last boat trip.
