A good place to start when visiting this charming waterfront community. The microclimate here gives sunny warm weather much of the time, even when it’s cool and foggy in San Francisco. Many great food and shopping options.

We stopped in Sausalito en route from Napa to San Francisco. The quaint village with the beautiful hillside homes makes a nice spot for breakfast or lunch and some light shopping. A different and relaxed vibe from that of San Francisco.The views of San Francisco...More
