Spend Quality Time on Alcatraz IslandThis National Historic Landmark is just a short ferry ride from Pier 33 at Fisherman's Wharf, which is less than two miles from Hotel Nikko. The highlight is the former federal prison that can be experienced courtesy of several different tours, such as the Cellhouse Audio Tour where you'll hear the voices of actual guards and inmates discussing what life was like on the inside. There are also nighttime tours along with an orientation film and information-rich museum displays. Hiking down to the Bay, visiting the old parade ground, and bird watching are other equally interesting Alcatraz Island activities.
