Best Adventures of the Nighttime Activities Around the World

Alcatraz Night Tour – California

 

Once the location of a notorious federal penitentiary housing America’s most hardened criminals, Alcatraz Island has since been declared a National Historic Landmark and integrated into the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The prison itself now stands empty except for the stream of one million visitors a year who wander through for an up-close look at the place that was once home to mobsters and mass murderers.

Nicknamed “The Rock,” Alcatraz Island is in a bay 1.5 miles from San Francisco – far enough from the general population to ensure isolation but close enough to taunt the island’s former inhabitants with symbols of freedom in the form of San Francisco’s glittering lights.
