I’m passionate about Sausalito, and for the last 12 years I’ve enjoyed sharing information and insider tips about this wonderful town. This is not a marketing page and I’m not a marketing guy, which is why we’ve been the largest and the most-visited Sausalito website in the world since 2017. (Source: Alexa, June, 2017 – Oct. 2020.)
My family first appeared in the pages of the Sausalito News in 1905. Four more generations have been born in this area, traveled the world, and always come back to the only place that ever felt like home.
As of November, 2020 we are updating many pages as Sausalito is now in the Orange tier of the California Covid-19 program. Many restaurants are offering outside and indoor seating with social distancing. Downtown parking lots are open, and ferries are running on a reduced but growing schedule. We look forward to seeing you (from a distance, with our masks on)!
