Sausalito, just across San Francisco Bay, has some of the best views OF San Francisco in the area.


Most visitors take a stroll in Sausalito, browsing in the shops and having a bite to eat. The ferry ride across the Bay to Sausalito is like a mini-bay cruise.

Pros and Cons

Sausalito has great views of the city - and it's pleasant enough otherwise, but to get there, you have to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge (and pay a toll to get back) or take a ferry (and face time pressures to be sure you don't miss the return trip).
