Where San Francisco - - Around the Bay -

The ferry ride to this sea­side vil­lage is one of the world’s most beau­ti­ful. It’s also ac­ces­si­ble via a scenic bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge. Ei­ther way, you'll ar­rive to col­or­ful houses spilling over rolling hill­sides, a pho­to­genic yacht har­bor and a quirky house­boat com­mu­nity.

Morn­ing

Stroll along the water­front prom­e­nade and then visit Gallery Sausal­ito, a loft that’s the work­ing stu­dio of con­tem­po­rary artist Sue Averell. See Daniel Mer­riam's col­lec­tion of paint­ings, prints, ce­ram­ics and jewelry in styles rang­ing from Steam­punk to pop sur­re­al­ism at Bub­ble Street Gallery. De­signer-fa­vorite Heath Ce­ram­ics, one of the last ac­tive mid­cen­tury Amer­i­can pot­ter­ies, is head­quar­tered here. Take a fac­tory tour and shop the over­stock mer­chan­dise.
