  • What visitors are saying

  • "When in San Francisco definitely take the Sausalito ferry! Not only because Sausalito is such a cute little town where you can go visit Muir Woods from, but also because the view from the ferry is amazing! The Bay Bridge, San Fran's skyline and not to forget to Golden Gate Bridge!"

    - Sharon Teeuwen @sharonteeuwen
