A few months ago, I went to Alcatraz for the first time. This former prison is fascinating, even more so with the guided audio tour by former prisoners and guards giving a look into how life on this island really was. Close enough to see (or at least hear for the prisoners in their cells), which was the hardest; hearing, smelling, and seeing freedom.  If you’re ever in San Francisco, head out there for a night tour, it’s really something else.
