Touristy days- Alcatraz

Sometimes when we live in a place, we don't do all the typical touristy things. Yes some of them are not worth it at all (pier 39 anyone??), and others absolutely are. I'd been wanting to go to Alcatraz for pretty much the entire 6+ years I'd lived in the city, and finally got around to it when my parents came to visit. I LOVED it. The history of the place is really interesting, and the buildings and scenery themselves are haunting and beautiful.

For some reason I also really want to get some friends and do a double deck bus tour. On a sunny day, sitting on the top with a bottle of white wine you snuck on. Sounds fabulous to me!
