    Alcatraz Island is another top-rated tourist destination in San Francisco. The complex on the island was originally a US military fort, which was later converted to a maximum-security penitentiary in 1934. The federal prison housed some of America’s most notorious criminals, including Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, and Robert Stroud (the infamous Birdman of Alcatraz). The jail was shut down in 1963 and reopened as a tourist spot in 1973. It also has a self-guided audio tour of the main building.

  • Golden Gate Bridge
