Exploring the Mysterious Alcatraz Island with American Income Life
Shrouded in legend and mystery, Alcatraz Island is a landmark unique to San Francisco with a notable history. Alcatraz Island opened to visitors in 1973 after becoming a national park in 1972. It didn’t take long for rumors of hauntings and legends to spread to the masses. Regardless of the island’s cold perception and creepy penitentiary surroundings, Alcatraz remains a prominent tourist attraction in San Francisco.
To get to ‘The Rock’ visitors must purchase tickets in advance from Alcatraz Cruises and catch a boat out from Pier 33. There are several free adventures on the island that detail the history of the lighthouse, notorious prison escapes, the military, the American Indian occupation, and more.
