Alcatraz Island


<p>The pictures were taken from the Golden gate bridge as I wasn&#39;t fortunate enough to secure my tickets for the tour to the island. So, plan ahead &amp; get your tickets if you are interested to visit&nbsp;&quot;<em>The Rock</em>&quot; which was once a maximum security prison and&nbsp;held the most notorious criminals&nbsp;during its years of operation from 1934 to 1963.&nbsp;The prison got it&#39;s nickname as no inmates ever managed to escape &quot;The Rock&quot; though there were numerous recorded attempts were made. The prison was shut down due to high operational costs.</p> <p>Over the years, the prison has been depicted in quite a number of movies such as the <em>Black Mass&nbsp;</em>which evolved it into a tourist spot. There are day and night tour to the iconic prison island and its ecouraged that you visit websites for&nbsp;<em>Alcatraz Cruises</em>&nbsp;and the&nbsp;<em>National Park Service</em> to check on availability, terms and conditions and any seasonal or operational changes.</p> <p><strong>Alcatraz Cruises:&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>National Park Service:&nbsp;</strong></p>
