Sean became fascinated with Alcatraz and his interest in the site inspired his wish. Sean and his mother traveled to San Francisco and enjoyed exploring the city during their five day stay. They went to a San Jose Sharks hockey game, visited Muir Woods, and spent hours exploring numerous museums and exhibits.
