I say discover because when we were planning our trip to California, it wasn’t one of the prompted places to see. But we discovered it when we crossed the Golden Gate. We were charmed by the genteel and quiet city by the bay.
As described in Wikitravel which we searched after finding Sausalito ,
Sausalito is in California, across the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco. Sausalito is a unique and picturesque community, perched on a hillside between the San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands.
