Getting About While in Sausalito
Many people head off on their holidays or for short weekends, without first looking into how they are going to get from A to B when they arrive at their chosen location. I myself was guilty of this when I visited Sausalito the first few times.
Now of course, if you intend to drive your own car about, this is not a concern for you. But if you are just “winging it” to see how things are once you’ve arrived, my guide to getting about Sausalito and the Bay area will be of help to you.
For me at least, cycling is chief among transport methods for getting around Sausalito (and in general), as you can travel at your own pace, and can really take the time to soak in all the magnificent views that this wonderful place has on offer.
There are several bike hire companies in Sausalito, and can cater to your needs, be it mountain biking or something more suited to road use.
For some, the only way to get about is via car – you have all the benefits of in car entertainment, air conditioning, and the ability to come and go as you please.
Admittedly, Sausalito has little in the way of car hire, but further up the road in San Francisco or Marin City, there are plenty of options. Many people arriving to Sausalito will have arranged their car hire at the airport on the way in anyhow, so this is rarely an issue.
Sausalito is extremely well catered to, public transport wise. Whether it is the BART railway system or one of the many busses traveling in all directions, you will have plenty of choice.
You even have the option of taking a Ferry, if you fancy a trip to San Francisco, and just do not want to travel over via the Golden Gate Bridge. The Ferry trip is quick and inexpensive, and is an experience all of its own.
I suppose this could be considered the most traditional of all transportation methods, and it’s certainly the cheapest! Joking aside, if you wish to walk around Sausalito, this is certainly a viable option. Everything you need is generally within reach, or a pretty short walk away.
Of course, it may take you a little longer to get to where you need to go, but you will be surrounded by breath taking views the entire time. I’d say that is a pretty even trade! It is even possible to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, should you choose to – many people do every single hour!
Whatever method you choose to get around, just make sure to take your time. Slow down, and drink in all of your surroundings in Sausalito – this is truly an amazing place. Take it from me; I’ve seen many sights on my journeys, but its here that I keep coming back to.
Sausalito rivals the best places in the world for views!
