SAUSALITO

Sausalito is located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, on the south-eastern tip of Marin County. This small town of only 7,500 residents boasts spectacular waterfront views, with many beautiful and unique homes scattered throughout the wooded hills overlooking Richardson Bay. There are also many condominiums with marvelous views of San Francisco. The regular ferry service makes this town easily accessible for commuters and tourists.

Considered to be the gateway to the wine country, Sausalito is well known as a popular visitor destination with its first-class hotels, art galleries and world-class restaurants that line the San Francisco Bay waterfront. It has a deserved reputation as a home to free-thinkers and artists. The Sausalito Art Festival, held every Labor Day weekend since 1952, showcases the best local, American, and international artists. This quiet community, reminiscent to many as a Mediterranean fishing village, has much to offer those looking for a place to call home.
