Sausalito Travel Guide: A Perfect Day Around Sausalito

Sausalito Travel Guide: A Perfect Day Around Sausalito

Our last Sausalito Travel Guide we posted has been pretty popular, so let’s try another! This time, we’ll get specific with a full day itinerary consisting of seven destinations. Plan to leave your hotel after breakfast around 9, and you’ll be back in time for the complimentary wine reception. From Acqua Hotel, the first stop is about a 5 minute drive. From Waters Edge Hotel in Tiburon and Mill Valley Inn in downtown Mill Valley about 15 minutes.

Taken together, these destinations will allow you to experience the totality of Sausalito: art, food, ocean and bay views, nature, and the unique way of living in this beautiful bayside town.
