Isn’t it often the case that it takes having visitors in town to see the sights that your own town/region is known for? To avoid this missed opportunity, head down to Sausalito today for a full-fledged tourist experience.
Being a tourist in Sausalito can involve basically sedentary activities all day, or it can be really active. On the sedentary side, there are a spots all along the waterfront to sit and just enjoy the view of San Francisco, Angel Island and the Bay, from the seawall along Bridgeway, to the ferry landing plaza, to Dunphy Park. If you choose to stroll that whole distance, you’ll come across dozens of cafes and eateries, many with sidewalk tables and chairs and ice cream service to go. Eating ice cream while strolling seems to be the favorite choice on a sunny day.
Don’t forget to walk out on the docks among the yachts at the marina just next the the ferry landing and the Sausalito Yacht Club. They are so beautiful and impressive with their soaring masts, creative names and clanking rigging.
Today there is also an arts and crafts show and sale at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Church (in Duggan Hall on the bottom floor of the church) from 10:30 – 3:00. This involves a short but steep walk (work off that ice cream!) up San Carlos off of Bridgeway/Caledonia to a sharp left on Harrison to the church. Be sure to admire the Rectory at 180 Harrison across the street with its beautiful garden, which you can walk through.
