Welcome to Sausalito
Delicious, artistic, colorful seaside leisure awaits
Across the bay from downtown San Francisco, Sausalito is a popular community known for its houseboats built by artists who moved to the community after World War II and its sweeping estates. Coffee shops, cafes, and seafood eateries are abundant, but residents who desire other options can easily hop the ferry across the Bay to Fisherman’s Wharf or the San Francisco Ferry Building. Art shows, jazz concerts, and community gatherings in local parks have made Sausalito one of the Bay Area’s most colorful gems.
Sausalito residents enjoy unmatched views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge from their hillside homes and the community's several waterfront eateries. Coffee, brunch, and of course, insanely fresh seafood are all top choices. Since 1966, Fred's Coffee Shop has consistently been named as one of the top brunch establishments in the city. Sausalito’s artistic heart can be best appreciated at Le Garage, a French bistro located in an old converted auto shop right on the water. A similar brunch menu with a French twist includes eggs Benedict, croque-madame, croque-monsieur, and duck confit. Nearby, Salito's Crab House & Prime Rib has been a long-standing staple of Sausalito's waterfront lineup since the late ‘70s. Seafood classics, and other plates with a twist, like crab alfredo or enchiladas, have earned Salito’s a loyal following. Other dishes with European flair can be found at Lighthouse Café. Since 1992, this casual establishment owned by Danish immigrants has perfected their American brunch menu while offering a taste of their native Denmark through their fresh pastries, Danish meatballs, and herring plates. Lucky locals can enjoy magical dishes prepared at Sushi Ran, a multi-award-winning honoree of Michelin, Zagat, The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, Travel and Leisure, USA Today, and many others in their nearly 40 years of business.
In addition to dining, Sausalito celebrates the seaside lifestyle everyday. The Fourth of July is particularly celebratory when locals can enjoy beautiful fireworks over the Bay. In the winter months, the boats embark onto the Bay yet again for the annual Lighted Boat Parade & Fireworks. Throughout the year, residents can spend ample leisure time out on the water by obtaining a membership to the Sausalito Yacht Club. Established on New Year's Eve in 1942 by a group of ambitious teens, the club eventually relocated to its current location in 1960. Today, the club holds regular boat cruises and races. If a simple day spent enjoying a picnic by the sea is in order, Sausalito's several seaside parks are the perfect place to do just this. Tiffany Park provides dramatic views of Sausalito's cliffside homes, the Bay, and Angel Island State Park in the distance. Your four-legged friends can run off their energy, make new friends, and play fetch at Sausalito Dog Park. Since 1991, it has been the city's most popular place for dogs to run and play off-leash.
