Known by travelers as a lovely and scenic daytrip from San Francisco, Sausalito is also a preferred place to call home for those looking for a private coastal setting with old-world charm and great access to San Francisco.
Located at the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito is bordered to the north by Marin City. Just a trip across the Golden Gate Bridge or ferry ride away, Sausalito feels like a world away, with the atmosphere of a small seaside town and a layer of protected land, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, acting as a buffer.
Sausalito was originally developed as a shipbuilding center during World War II and has evolved over the years into an artist’s retreat and an island hideaway. Today’s Sausalito retains elements of both, with a bohemian spirit woven into the upscale lifestyle with unique shops and restaurants and hundreds of houseboats dotting the landscape in tandem with prized residences.
Sausalito has been ranked among America’s “Happiest Seaside Towns” by Coastal Living, noted for its scenic beauty, relaxed pace and remarkable views just minutes from one of the most dynamic employment centers in the nation.
