The City of Sausalito is located in Marin County, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The City of Sausalito is 2.257 square miles in area and is home to 7,125 people, according to the US Census (2016).
The city is known for its Richardson Bay houseboat enclaves, built by artist squatters after WWII. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Bay Model Visitor Center has a functioning 3D hydraulic model of the Bay Area, plus exhibits about the area's waterways. The Marin Headlands offers Golden Gate Bridge views.
When Sausalito was formally platted, it was anticipated that future development might extend the shoreline with landfill, as had been the practice in neighboring San Francisco. As a result, entire streets, demarcated and given names like Pescadero, Eureka and Teutonia, remain beneath the surface of Richardson Bay. Regardless of the many changes Sausalito has experienced, diversity and vigor remain unchanged.
Sausalito's harbors and marinas host a dazzling array of pleasure craft from every corner of the globe. The city's love of the counter-culture and art is now shared with software, multi-media and financial enterprises. Listings of local businesses are available on their website, as well as on the website of the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce, which also provides resources for those looking to relocate their home or business to Sausalito.
