Get a piece of "the rock".....

A recent family trip will inspire our next series of blog posts.  We had a wonderful time and stand ready to help your family experience the sights of the Northern California coast. 

We highly recommend, on your next trip to San Francisco, that you take the time to tour Alcatraz Island.

A quick ferry ride away, Alcatraz features a very well done audio-tour which takes you through America's most famous prison from the days of prohibition and America's most wanted list.

Narrated by one of the actual guards from Alcatraz, the tour moves at a comfortable pace.  Highlights include the isolation D block, actual stories from former prisoners and details of some of the most famous escape attempts.

As odd as it sounds, the experience is fun and educational for the whole family.

And the view back to San Francisco isn't bad either.....
