This is a gem of a place. I visited here as an extension of the Big Bus City tour. It is quaint and beautiful. A nice place to spend away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Stay a while. Have some ice-cream or coffee then walk around and enjoy the views of San Francisco and the bay.

We stopped by the Visitor Center to get a map of the city and we were greeted by a lovely lady who gave us a lot of information and recommendations about this beautiful town ! She even told us to watch for a parade around 13h30 which in fact did happen ! The only downside about the Visitor Center is... More

If you have time, stop and visit the neat little town of Sausalito. They have some neat shops and restaurants here. You can also take a ferry to and from San Francisco if you don't want to drive. Remember, there is no fee to leave San Francisco on the Golden Gate bridge, but there is a $7 fee to return... More

They call Sausalito the french riviera of USA, but I think they have never been in France... The place is nice to walk around and there are millionaires living there how ever this will never look like Montecarlo or the riviera. You can live without visiting it.

We went to this little town after our Golden Gate Bridge tour. It was a nice little with many little shops and restaurants. I just wished that we had more time at this place. Also, be sure to carry some quarters with you for the parking (they only take quarters). We had to go to the store to exchange some... More

We drove to Sausalito from Half Moon Bay . The coastal drive us stunning . The drive through San Fransisco was challenging and busy but it was nice to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. The town of Sausalito reminds me of the Amalfi coast in Italy very scenic. I have never seen so many people on bicycles and they... More

We took a bus tour to Muir Woods and got off to explore Sausalito with intent of taking ferry back to Pier 39. Signage is very confusing at the boat dock and no personnel to provide guidance at the location. We found the visitors booth nearby and met a lovely woman who was so helpful, guided us through what to... More
