Since many of us take time off this week to be with family and friends, and often include shopping in our daily agenda, my suggestion is to go to Sausalito and combine shopping with visiting the 5th Annual Gingerbread House Competition and Tour. There are 28 gingerbread houses on the tour this year, created and displayed by merchants throughout the town. Be sure to vote for your favorite!
The Gingerbread House Competition and Tour 2011 Sausalito map shows that they range from out west at the Marine Mammal Center next to Fort Cronkite, to the ICB Studios on the north end of town, meandering through Cavallo Point, along Bridgeway and then jogging over to Caledonia to include a number of locations. They are very creative, coming in a variety of shapes, levels and themes. The one above is at Pinestreet Papery.
When: Through December 31, 2011
