Sausalito

Sausalito was first discovered in 1775 by Spanish explorer Juan Manual de Ayala, who is credited for giving Sausalito its name ‘Sausalito’, meaning little willow grove.  Nothing rivals the romance of Sausalito with its magnificent views of the Bay’ San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz Island and the majestic Golden Gate Bridge. Visitors from all over the world fall in love with this elegant, small Mediterranean-style waterfront village. Short ferryboat rides between San Francisco and Sausalito, once the primary access, offer visitors and commuters alike a delightful change of pace. Marin Headlands, a scenic stretch of land which parallels the San Francisco coastline, is home to the Marine Mammal Center, a rescue and rehabilitation facility for seals and sea lions.

Sausalito used to be an adult community of professionals and empty nesters. Homes are built on very steep hillsides which make parklands virtually non-existent.   There is also a floating home community with approximately 350 houseboats, ranging from junks to mansions. Boutiques, street side cafes, yacht clubs, fine restaurants, shops and art galleries help create the sophisticated charm of this very beautiful bayside community. Now many families are thriving at the local charter school, Willow Creek Academy, which has changed the community to become a wonderful place to raise a family within close proximity to San Francisco.
