Sausalito Visitor Information Kiosk
Foot of El Portal St. at the Ferry Pier, Sausalito CA 94965 (See Map Below)
We’ve designed OurSausalito.com so you can carry it around Sausalito on your smartphone, tablet or laptop and get lists like Restaurants Near the Ferry and reference pages like The Guide to Downtown Sausalito, with links to other nearby Sausalito neighborhoods.
But sometimes after you disembark from the Ferry, or found a parking place for your car, or if you just parked (and locked!) your bike after a long ride you just want a human being to talk to for suggestions or to confirm directions to where you want to go. We help people all the time while we’re walking to lunch or to the bank, but we can’t be there in person all the time!
For those moments the (great) people at the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce have provided a Visitors Information Kiosk, pictured above, adjacent to the waiting area at the Ferry Pier at the foot of El Portal, one block from Bridgeway at the heart of Downtown Sausalito.
The hours vary with the season, but generally the kiosk is open during mid-day times when the ferry service is most heavily traveled by visitors, from late morning till late afternoon.
The people there will be happy to answer your questions, give you a visitors map printed by the Chamber, and make suggestions. They’re volunteers who live in the area, so if you drop by please take a moment to thank them for helping out.
Just a block away from the Visitors Kiosk are the local history exhibits at the Sausalito Historical Society visitor center at the Ice House, where they’re also very friendly and helpful if you have questions.
Insiders Tip: These facilities can be useful and fun for residents as well as visitors. I’ve lived in three different neighborhoods of Sausalito, and each year I wander by the kiosk to get the new Chamber of Commerce map because there will be some new shop listed there that I might otherwise have missed. I find the historical pieces in the Ice House fascinating, too, and sometimes squint and try to picture what my grandfather looked like walking down Bridgeway (then called Water St.) in 1905!
