Wow what a wonderful place to visit, it is a very pretty little town with quirky little shops and great restaurants, with lovely views across the bay. We went across by bus and then took the ferry back to San Francisco, just so we could get different views of the wonderful scenery. Definitely a must see place to visit.

The Sausalito Visitors Center is located in the city center and has a full time staff person to answer questions. They do have maps and suggestions for sightseeing trips, bike rentals, etc.

I was welcomed warmly and directed promptly as needed. I learned the sea food restaurant could not rely on local supplies and was quite disappointed. You expect otherwise when on the sea shore. I went for something else.

This is a really pretty spot with a good range of shops to wander around and a variety of places to eat and drink. My son, who has lived in San Francisco for ten years , and is keenly interested in the music that he heard as a child, tells me that the wall that I was sitting on, looking... More

What a nice little place this is to visit and just stroll around. We took a bus there, but there is a regular ferry that goes from somewhere around Pier 39. Apparently, Sausalito was voted the 6th cutest town in the USA, but I have no idea by whom. Maybe by thee guy that told me? Nice place for a... More

What a great tranquil area. I enjoyed the Holiday Shop (great San Francisco trinkets) and I thoroughly loved my wine tasting experience at Bacchus and Venus (great blend – yummy). The marina docks were beautiful, the view was awesome and the walk ways were super friendly… .. JUST be mindful of the cyclists! They DOMINANT the streets! Nice but not... More

So many little shops and eateries to partake in while sitting on the rocks watching the waves. The hop on/hop off buses very conveniently will get you there and back into the city. A house on the hill costs $15m and the bottom of the hill is $5m. A very upscale area but also very 'down to earth.'

We stopped in Sausalito on our way from San Francisco to spend a few days in the Napa Valley and we are so glad we did. The town has a cool and friendly vibe to it. My wife and I enjoyed shopping in the stores along the main street, with the Bay in the background. The real highlight was lunch... More

I had only two days to visit SF and I must say, this day turned out to be perfert! After a tour of Muir Woods, we had the option of going back by ferry. Do consider this option if you are short on time. It is your chance to take awesome pictures of Sausalito, the Golden Gate, Alcatraz, The City... More
