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 stepped off the ferry from San Francisco, turned left and within 30 seconds were at this visitors center kiosk. It was the perfect location for getting information about Sausalito before exploring the town. Brochures and maps filled racks on the kosk's exterior walls. A...More
