“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
– Pablo Picasso
Located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the scenic waterfront city of Sausalito is one of Northern California’s most popular tourist destinations. If you’re driving from San Francisco, take a short detour to the scenic Marin Headlands – it’s one of our favorite vantage points of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline — the views from the top are absolutely spectacular, especially on a fog-free sunny day.
Fun Sausalito Attractions, City Sightseeing Tours & Day Trips
Besides great shopping, trendy restaurants, upscale art galleries and chic boutiques, Sausalito offers stunning views of San Francisco and the Bay. Take a Ferry to Sausalito from San Francisco (from Pier 41 at Fisherman’s Wharf or the Ferry Building) and enjoy a scenic cruise across the Bay, with views of Alcatraz and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Nearby attractions include San Francisco, Muir Woods and Tiburon.
