Lovely little village, very popular and crowded, had the best sandwiches at the Bakery for lunch. BLT and Chicken Pesto both excellent.

A cute, relaxing, slightly pretentious getaway from San Francisco. We biked across the bridge and did the "bike valet". Restaurant selection can be limited and many places only take cash (there are a Bank of America and a few other ATMs around). If taking a ferry back get you ticket at the blue kiosk as soon as you get there... More

Decided to go to Sausalito when in San Fran as my sister had been there before and said it was nice. It is easy enough to get to/back by ferry, either from main ferry terminal or further up on pier 39, where the fares seem to range from $9 to $13 each way but be warned the ferries leave around...

It was quite disappointing to see the visitor center to be closed on a weekday afternoon. The town is good to take a walk around and see some nice yachts but nothing so great as hyped

A small area with interesting historical photos and an old gramophone. They were most helpful and provided excellent advice.

My 3rd time to Sausalito . We drove and keep coming back to Hanson's Art Gallery . Walked the downtown area several streets of nice shops . Great photo op where the ferries dock . The best part of town is the Visitor's Center . I loved the history lessons the old pictures all very well done.

We did enjoy Sausalito however did find it expensive to park etc and do think it is this way to get money from tourists. I would recommend but take the change to feed the parking machines.

Visted Sausalito and loved it. The ferry ride was a treat on its own looking back to the city area. We had some nice seafood but cannot remember the name of the place. All in all a great place to spend half a day.
