Sausalito’s rich history dates back to the late 1800s, when it was a hub for the shipbuilding and fishing industries. Today, the town of approximately 7,000 residents is a popular tourist destination and a haven for artists, writers, and musicians who are keeping it “salty.” One of the main attractions in Sausalito is its charming downtown area, which features a variety of unique shops, art galleries and restaurants.

Right next door, Marin City offers a major shopping center, beautiful hikes and recreational offerings.
