    Sausalito Walk

    After finishing our day outing in the area of the Golden Gate Bridge, we stopped off in the north-side community of Sausalito to admire its quaint streets, hillside housing and fine views of the city. This photo of the park on its main street was taken as we were walking down to lunch at the Water Street Grille.

    Hillside Stroll

    Stroll on an Abandoned Road

    It was very relaxing to wander around the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean, not far from the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The wild flowers were putting on a great display and kites and hawks were soaring overhead! A great spot to just stroll around at leisure and take in the whole scene from a great vantage point!

    Sausalito

    For a quick trip out of town, pass over the Golden Gate Bridge or take a ferry to the elegant little village-town of Sausalito. Over the years this community has understandably become more and more wealthy. Even while escaping the city you still feel very connected to it thanks to a fantastic view from across the bay. The main part of town is set along Bridgeway. Here there's a little park and several quaint shops and restaurants. Conveniently there's a visitor's center in the middle of town as well. For a romantic getaway this could be your spot. Be sure to book ahead, as many people will have the same idea. If you're around for Labor Day weekend check out the Sausalito Arts Festival. The place is jammed with people checking out some great arts and crafts. This is a wonderful place to pick up a highly original souvenir.

    Marin County
    North of San Francisco the city is the well known and the awesome Golden gate bridge but this bridge can be truly appreciated if you make the trip across it and arrive in Marinn County. Beautiful lush countryside only 20 min drive from downtown. Wonderful!. I did not hink much of the town of Sausalito. A bit to idyllic for me, rather like touristy Brighton of the summer. But the National park...the scenery is a sight not to be missed.

    Taking a ferry to Sausalito (north of the Golden Gate Bridge) is a nice activity. The tourists ferries are more expensive, as expected. The tourists ferries leave Pier 39, I believe. The regular ferry for people who live in the area is called Golden Gate Transit (who also operates buses). They depart from the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street. The California Street cable car ends close to this building (not the other cable car lines). The ferries are not too frequent, only about every 1:15 or so.

    Sausalito was a fishermen village but nowadays is a very trendy and lovely town. It is located just after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. From the port you can see a fantastic view of the skyline of San Francisco.

    Sausalito - beautiful buildings

    by blue_sky04 Updated Feb 7, 2005
    Beautiful building

    There are nice Victorian houses in Sausalito, too. This beautiful building in my photo is a fashion shop (If I am not mistaken), located in the main road of Sausalito.

    The Marina

    Nice little town with interesting "boat" houses - known as the resident of artists.
    Beautiful marina.

    Marin County is right north of the Golden Gate Bridge, there are some quaint seaside towns such as Sausilito and Tiburon.

    Delightful communities across the bay from San Francisco. Each has its own identity and so different from the main city
