  • Bring extra clothes on the ferry. The famed San Francisco fog isn't a myth, and the Bay crossing, while only 30 minutes, can be nippy. Bring a sun hat too, just in case I'm wrong.
  • This is a great cycling destination: start in San Francisco, go through the Golden Gate Park, across the bridge, and down the hill past the Visitor's Center. You can return with the bike by ferry, but be careful in Sausalito: blundering cyclists will be ticketed!
  • Check the ferryboats to see if they give transfers to Fisherman's Wharf when you return to San Francisco. If you push the transfer button you get to ride the fancy bus!
  • Got an extra day in SF? Take one of the same ferryboats to Tiburon for a few hours of walking, shopping, and dining. Proceed to Angel Island to see the old fort and/or hike the island. There is no charge to bring your bicycle.
  • Caledonia Street in Sausalito, a block uphill from the seaside Police Department, is a fun street with excellent restaurants, a first-rate movie house, and the library/city hall in an old school building!

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
