Sausalito, California

Yet another beautiful San Francisco Bay area city of the Marin County is Sausalito. Just 8 miles from south-southeast from San Rafael, Sausalito is one of the attractive tourist destinations. Bearing a Mediterranean climate, Sausalito has 2 sister cities: Vina del Mar, Chile and Sakaide Kawaga, Japan. Located in the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge, this amazing town welcomes a steady swarm of visitors every year. It boasts of one of the last ungated marinas of the Bay Area and this is the best attraction around here apart from the sightseeing of the beautiful sceneries.
