DESTINATION GUIDE

What to Do on the Water

The Sausalito area is always up to date on the latest trends in sailboats, or you can try ocean-going kayaks, mini-cruises, and yacht rentals. Bring your friends for a day of upscale partying on the water, but don’t forget that a trip on the Sausalito Ferry is a must to get the full Bay experience. Want a day on the water without the touristy attractions? Head over to the neighborhood of Marinship, an industrial waterfront and beach area where you can still find sailboat rentals and canoe rentals, plus plenty of places to dock your boat rental. This area has a funkier vibe where you’ll see more of the informal local flair.

What to Do Off the Water

Just off the Bay in Sausalito, you’ll find the promenade and gorgeous beaches, both perfect for sunset walks. Sausalito is a very dog-friendly area, with many of the waterfront shopping and dining being open to furry friends. Some of the most well-known art galleries in the San Francisco area are located in Sausalito, such as the famous Petri’s Gallery, a must for any art lover interested in glass or bronze sculpture.
