Tot-Friendly Day Trip: Sausalito

Last week our little family decided to take the day off and head over the Golden Gate Bridge to sunny Sausalito! Sausalito is right over the bridge coming from San Francisco but usually warmer and sunnier than the city! Though the town is small there are some great toddler-friendly spots that we like to visit. This time we went back to Salito's for lunch, explored the Bay Area Discovery Museum, and had a sweet snack at Lappert's Ice Cream.

Lunch: Salito's Crab House & Prime Rib

1200 Bridgeway Sausalito, CA 94965


Why we like it:

- It's a little ways down from all the crowds but still close enough to the action if we want to take a stroller walk after eating

-Opentable reservations can be made online, but there was plenty of opening seating when we arrived at noon (filled up by 1pm).

-Large outdoor deck to dine on with a view of the boats

- consistently delicious seafood

- addicting house-made kettle bread served with Straus butter

- easy parking

Playtime: Bay Area Discovery Museum

557 McReynolds Rd

Sausalito, CA 94965

Posh Tot exploring "The Stream"


Why we like it:

- There is currently an Amazon Local deal for this venue, admission is only $10 for two general admission tickets.

- There's a Tot Spot area that is safe for crawlers, early walkers, and toddlers to explore.

- Easy parking

-Nested in a historical fort with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge

-Picnic friendly

-Good mix of outdoor and indoor activities about music, art, science, play, and environmental education.

- Wide array of activities geared towards toddlers to young children, so we can keep coming back throughout the years

Why we like it:

- creamy and unique flavors like Kaua'i Pie & Kona Mocha Chip

- affordable prices, under $4 for a generous scoop

- right in the middle of all the shops and a short walk to the waterfront to watch all the boats go by
