Perfectly arranged on a secure little harbor on the bay, Sausalito is undeniably lovely. Named for the tiny willows that once populated the banks of its creeks, it’s a small settlement of pretty houses that tumble neatly down a green hillside into a well-heeled downtown. Much of the town affords the visitor uninterrupted views of San Francisco and Angel Island.

The colourful house boats and quirky houses, hotels and restaurants cut into the cliff. Also, just a few miles from here is Muir Woods and Muir Beach. Make sure you stop and try to wrap your hands around the giant redwoods, (the smell is FANTASTIC). And a swift half at the British pub The Pelican is a must. They transported the pub all the way from England and as soon as you walk through the door, it's like you've travelled the 5,000 miles straight back home!
