    Sausalito

    Sausalito is about 8 miles north of downtown San Francisco and has been called, 'the Riviera of California.' It's a beautiful, quiet, artistic community that offers an historic downtown, some great view of the city and Angel Island, as well as some great restaurants and parks. If you only have a half a day for a day trip, this would be the place to go.

    Easily reachable from SF by car Sausalito is a lovely little harbour town, very clean, with great ice cream.
    It seems popular with families and couples alike. There are some great phot opportunities and plenty of places to sit and watch the water.
    We spent a very pleasant afternoon there.

    Take the Ferry / or bike to Sausalito

    Small beach at Sausalito

    "Sausalito is located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, on the south-eastern tip of Marin County. Sausalito was incorporated in 1893, and named by 18th century Spanish explorers for the "little willow" trees (Saucelito) which were found, in abundance, on the banks of its streams. Sausalito covers a mere two and one half miles; a small town of only 7,500 residents boasting spectacular waterfront views." - from City of Sausalito homepage - http://www.ci.sausalito.ca.us/vis-info/index.htm

    Sausalito is easily accessible by ferry from San Francisco. It is a perfect getaway for a day - or maybe half a day. You can stroll along the shore, check out the art shops or have a nice lunch/dinner at one of the restaurants. If you can catch the artfestival (see link below) all the better!

    Biking across the Golden Gate and catching the ferry back is also an interesting option... There are a lot of bike shops that will provide you with the rentals and maps around Pier 39.

    Sausalito is a very touristy 'chi-chi' place. The town is a sleepy fishing village gone touristy, but is still fun for the ferry ride and views of the bay. You should buy some ice cream in Sausalito and stroll around. I just loved this area but the restaurants are very overpriced in Sausalito. At one time there was a lot of houseboats moored here but they had mostly moved on.

    Sausalito...just across the Golden Gate from SF. Sausalito has some great things to see, and you will get the best view of the Golden Gate and SF from here. Lots of Bed and Breakfasts are also located here in this upscale community.

    The beauty of visiting San Francisco is the other attractions nearby. One of the side trip should be across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito in Marin county. It's very small but it lends a spectacular view of San Francisco. One suggestion is to eat at a restaurant by the wharf so you can admire SF from afar.

    Take a drive to Sausalito, in Marin County. This community is built up on a hill and offers some spectacular views of the Bay. Enjoy a nice lunch and an afternoon of shopping or taking a stroll along the marina.

    Headlands State Park. Has the most beautiful view from far above the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The park has access to a small sandy beach, and trails throughout the headlands. The
    view of San Francisco from the headlands will leave an impressin you will never forget. For anyone who enjoys the outdoors and hiking this is top of the list for anyone visiting the Bay Area.
