Lying at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge, picturesque Sausalito receives a steady stream of visitors who both cycle over the bridge or use the ferry service from San Francisco. It retains one of the few ungated marinas in the Bay area that folks can wander and enjoy.
Sausalito was the setting mentioned by Otis Redding in his 1967 tune (Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay. The city was also referred to in a 1980 roadtrip song by the Dutch band Diesel, titled Sausalito Summernights.
