SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - More visitors flock to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area than to any other spot in the National Park Service.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Bay Area's chain of federally run scenic and historic places - which includes Alcatraz, Muir Woods and Fort Mason - is the top draw among 401 National Park sites.

Newly released attendance figures show the Golden Gate attraction drew more than 14 million visitors last year.

It surpassed the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina and Tennessee.
