More About Sausalito
A quaint and intimate Marin County town, Sausalito once served as a distant oasis for bootleggers during the Prohibition Era who were drawn to its geographic positioning, waterways, and culture.
Thriving shipyards occupied the waters of Richardson Bay during World War Two, but were eventually abandoned. Making use of the empty space, San Francisco's beatniks and hippies flooded the vacant shipyards throughout the 50s and 60s, often building homes aboard deserted boats, ferries and barges, giving birth to Sausalito's original houseboat community. Today, historic relics of the early days wade beside floating homes of various shapes, sizes, values and luxuries.
In a Word

- Parks and playgrounds are a bit sparse, but the century-old Fort Baker is close by with 355 acres to explore. The fort’s Cavallo Point offers historic and contemporary lodging, which is great for family vacations and intimate weekend getaways. It’s also the venue of the Sausalito Film Festival which celebrates the area’s creative inspirations as well as the philosophers, artists, writers, Hollywood icons and rock legends who’ve passed through.
Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was written right here. Enough said.
With San Francisco just minutes away by car, ferry, or public transportation, world-class views and quaint, European feel, Sausalito continues to draw creatives, executives, and dreamers alike.
