A Guide for Visitors, An Owner’s Manual for Residents
I’m passionate about Sausalito, and 2023 is my 16th year of sharing this guide to our wonderful little town. This is not a marketing page, and I’m not a marketer. That’s why Alexa and other services have ranked us as the largest and the most-visited Sausalito website in the world every year since 2017.
Why do we call this site “Our Sausalito?” My family first appeared in the pages of the Sausalito News in September of 1905, just before the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906. Four more generations have been born in this area. We’ve traveled the world, and always come back to the only place that ever felt like home. We and our kids have lived in four different Sausalito neighborhoods and I work in a fifth neighborhood here, so I have a lot to share with you!
