Hi you guys!
Are you ready for the weekend? Tomorrow is my birthday so I’m looking forward to Saturday – fun – fun – fun! I hope my hubby takes me SKYDIVING!! That would seriously blow my mind!
Today I’m going to share my experience about the trip to Sausalito. So far, I’ve been a couple of times there -by bus as a part of a tour to Napa (which I’m gonna share later on), with my parents-in-law by car and with my hubby and friends by byke – > this last one the most enjoyable by far!
Before we came to SF I haven’t even heard about it, but if you ever come, you MUST PAY A VISIT TO THIS TOWN! It’s one hell of a view of San Francisco skyline from there!
Sausalito is a pretty little town right at the end of the Golden Gate Bridge (not exactly at the end for us who get there on bike, it’s like a 8 minute ride on bicycle after the GGB). This town used to serve as a terminus for rail, car and ferry traffic prior to the building of the bridge. Today the place it’s pretty touristic but still it just has one street where you can actually look at stores – eat, shop, have ice-cream- there’s where pretty much everyone is when they go visit, it’s very crowded till the last ferry sails out -at about 7oclock every day. Basically if you go there on bike you come back by ferry, so it’s a cool thing to do, it has just the right amount of exercise that you will enjoy actually enjoy 🙂
WARNING: You must leave SF in the morning (by morning I mean elevensh-twelvish), on the afternoon gets pretty cool to go by byke, you won’t enjoy it and if you arrive late to the town (6:30pm) almost all the shops are already closed! 😦 This happen to me when my friends came visit me from Mexico, we really suffered!!! … That day we started from Fisherman’s Wharf at 4:30pm and got there two hours later almost frozen to dead!!! We were totally unprepared to be THAT cold hahaha.. now it’s funny, at the time, I wanted to bail and get a cab! But I gotta tell you that when I went at 12oclock with my hubby, it was warm, delicious, there was actually people in town, stores were open, there was people at the beach (which you pass by if you start from Fisherman’s) it was just lovely!
So if you ever come to the city, DEFINITELY make that trip by byke! The best for me was start from Fisherman’s Wharf, because you get to see the beach and take pics there with the bridge behind, you also pass by a really nice park full of people sunbathing, reading, playing with their dogs, you also get to know Marina Blvd. and go over the golden gate and take pictures there in every single spot you want!
Look at the pictures of the tour with my friends, you will be the only ones to know that those smiles were actually frozen! haha You will also see that the town is empty! heheheh
TIP: Coming back from the Ferry and after getting the bikes returned we stopped by Ghirardelli Square, YOM! That’s something to look forward too!
