Sausalito is a small town directly across from the San Francisco Peninsula, on the other side of the bay. It is characterized by its fishing port and for its typical floating houses, which number over 400 over the coastal region.
This area is the chosen residence for celebrities and the higher classes who prefer to distance themselves from the large crowds in the city.
Sausalito is also an interesting place to take pictures of San Francisco or the island of Alcatraz.
Besides booking a tour, you can get to Sausalito by car, ferry or bicycle.
If you feel strong enough, you can choose to rent a bicycle in Fisherman's Wharf (for less than $30 per day, or free with the Go San Francisco Card) and cover the 8 miles to Sausalito. On the way, you will cross the Golden Gate Bridge and pass several interesting places to take pictures.
When returning to San Francisco, the most common option is to use the ferry, and many companies include the ticket with the price of renting a bike.
