Alcatraz is located in the San Francisco Bay, offshore from downtown.

The small island was developed with a lighthouse, a military fortification + jail and became a federal prison from 1934 until 1963 - housing famous criminals such as Al Capone + Machine Gun Kelly!

On January 17, 1986, 32 years ago, this iconic penitentiary became a National Historic Landmark so that future travelers can continue to learn about its unique history!

*BONUS*: The friendly welcome committee, the Pier 39 Sea Lions!
