From Bridgeway, the main street of Sausalito, Calif., you can see why this bayside town just north of the Golden Gate Bridge is often compared to a Mediterranean fishing village.

6. View Of Richardson Bay

A little farther on, the calm of Richardson Bay is perfect for smaller craft. If weather permits, consider a full-moon kayak paddle with Sea Trek Ocean Kayaking Center—they will outfit you fully, and novices are welcome.

Despite the four-digit Brioni suits and Movado watches for sale on Bridgeway, you can locate bargains in town. Stroll along Gate 5 Road until you reach the Heath Ceramics factory—in business since 1948—selling seconds of elegant pottery at reduced prices.
