Distance from San Francisco to Sausalito
How Far is Sausalito from San Francisco? There are different ways to answer that question, and here are all the answers:
From Union Square in San Francisco to downtown Sausalito is about a 9 mile (15 km.) drive across the Golden Gate Bridge (see map below). With no traffic it’s less than a 30-minute trip, but during commute hours it can be over an hour.
The Golden Gate Bridge southern approach is in San Francisco and the northern end is in the Sausalito Zip Code, so in that respect the distance is the length of the Golden Gate Bridge.
“As the crow flies” it’s about 6.5 miles (10 km.) from central San Francisco to downtown Sausalito.
