Muir Woods National Park is an ancient redwood forest spanning 558 acres. It’s located 45 minutes drive from San Francisco. Some trees of the Muir Woods are 1,000 years old and over 250 feet tall, leaving the sensation of some magical forest from Lord of the Rings. The sanctuary was named after the ecological thinker, political spokesman, and environmental advocate John Muir, who lived in the 19th century. Mur Woods National Monument has been under federal protection since 1908. The forest has 400 plant and animal species thanks to its unique ecosystem. 

Alcatraz Island

Is there anyone who hasn’t heard about Alcatraz Island or “The Rock,” as it’s also being called? No doubt, Alcatraz is one of San Francisco’s top traveler destinations. Views from the island over the city and the bay are jaw-dropping. But it’s not only about the scenery; its history is remarkable! Alcatraz appeared in numerous films and was chosen by Hollywood as one of the most dramatic shooting locations. Views from the island over the city and the bay are jaw-dropping. But it’s not only about the scenery; its history is remarkable! Originally operating as a military fortification, it gained its fame as a federal prison housing America’s most dangerous criminals like Al Capone and “The Birdman” Robert Stroud. But “The Rocks”‘ story doesn’t end there. It is also known as a symbol of Native American resistance. 

In 1969, nearly 80 Native Americans took over the island and occupied it for nearly two years. They hoped to build up a community on the island with schools and local administration. This action got a lot of public attention and support. However, their claim was opposed, and the federal troops ended the occupation.
