Spent a morning strolling through shops and boutiques. Breathtaking views reminded me of Capri in Italy. Do not miss this charming town. You will not be disappointed. O my drawback was it was very crowded, but it was a sunny Saturday in August.

My husband and I visited the little sea town/city for the day. We took the ferry from SF's popular Fisherman's Wharf. We have been raised in California, but so many beautiful destinations within our state we haven't seen Sausalito was one of those places. We visited in March 2015 and the weather was absolutely beautiful and warm. It was mid... More

The most beautiful town I have ever been. Otis reading sat and wrote dock of the bay and on the luckiest of days we visited, we sat right there and knew what this guy was singing about, an amazing view back to San francisco!

I had heard a lot about Sausalito so went there with great expectations and was very disappointed. In fact if anyone reading my review thinks I am a bit harsh in my assessment I met several other couples sitting around me at lunch who also expressed the same disappointment in the place when I was enquiring as to what there...

After a few days of frenetic sightseeing in San Francisco, I took the ferry ($11 round trip) to Sausalito. I came to the Visitors Center to get a local map and info about the city. When there, a bus to Muir Woods ($5 round trip) had just arrived. I had not planned to visit Muir Woods, as the 5-hour tour... More

Sausalito is another great town north of the Golden Gate Bridge and it is one of the ferry docking destinations. A great place to dine, shop, and most of all the view of the bay area and San Francisco. Great for biking, jogging, or just walking thru this unique little town. You won't see much Mc Donalds, Subways, or lots... More

Whether by driving or by boat, get into Sausalito. Park near the docks and wander the charming hillside shops and good restaurants.Very cute little place.

Friendly staff with lots of great ideas and tips. Any trip to San Fran should include Sausalito. Lovely township right on the harbour. Not a cheap place to stay (unless you have a great budget) so stay in SF and make a day trip across the GG Bridge instead. A cross between an arts community and fishing village. Lots of... More
