I’ve been to San Francisco a handful of times, but I hadn’t heard of Sausalito until last weekend. I’ve been to Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Alcatraz, Pier 39, the Ferry Building, Union Square, the Presidio, Coit Tower, the Japanese Tea Garden, Lombard Street, Twin Peaks, the Bay Bridge, the Palace of Fine Arts, Ghiradelli Square, Crissy Field, Baker Beach, AT&T Park, the Embarcadero, the Exploratorium, Muir Woods, and even the Full House house. But I hadn’t heard of Sausalito until last weekend.
If you haven’t heard of Sausalito before, it’s this awesome little town on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s also my new favorite San Francisco tourist destination! Kurt and I had the opportunity to bike across the bridge to Sausalito, and even though we didn’t get to spend too much time there I absolutely loved it. It has this cool laid back Mediterranean vibe, plus you can even take a ferry back to Pier 39. It’s definitely touristy, but it felt way more comfortable and homey than the city!
Sausalito is a great reminder that no matter how well you know a place, there’s always more to explore. Even in my own little city of Spokane, I often find myself going to the same places and doing the same things over and over and over. I eat at the same five restaurants, I go on the same two bike rides, and I attend the same three yearly events. Usually, I’m all about getting out there and trying new things. Today, I think I’ll try something new right where I am!
