MUIR WOODS AND ALCATRAZ TOUR
Be sure to add a trip to Alcatraz, once the site of a former maximum-security penitentiary and now one of San Francisco’s most popular tourist attractions. A short ferry ride from Pier 33 at Fisherman’s Wharf, you will have the opportunity to talk with National Park Service Rangers about the island’s history, watch a short slide show and take an audio walking tour of the cellblock which is included (estimated time is 2-3 hours). Lean the incredible history of the island and about its most infamous inmates such as the “Birdman” Robert Stroud or Al “Scarface” Capone. The legendary “Rock” features some of the most spectacular photo opportunities.
It is advisable to wear comfortable walking shoes and a jacket for the Alcatraz trip. Alcatraz Cruises provides the Alcatraz ferry service to and from the island.
Venture north over the Golden Gate Bridge to an isolated canyon filled with ancient coastal redwood trees, also known as Muir Woods National Monument. Enjoy solitude and peace as you stroll through 1000-year-old trees towering 260 feet tall. For up to 1 1/2 hours in the park, enjoy such sights as:
· Coastal Redwoods · Marin County · Black-tailed Deer
