Caledonia Street and New Town

This seven-block section of Sausalito, featuring Caledonia Street, is a favorite among locals.

This area also boasts more restaurants and bars per block than downtown Sausalito, making it a lively spot for dining and entertainment.

Why “New Town”?

Sausalito’s original settlement at the southern edge of the city is known as Old Town. After the arrival of the railroad in the 1870s, the city expanded into a northern valley, which became known as New Town. Despite being over 130 years old, New Town is still considered the “new” part of Sausalito compared to Old Town’s 180-year history.

This area, developed significantly during World War II, originally catered to the middle class and has since become a community hub with businesses serving local needs. Today, Caledonia Street is where residents spend most of their shopping and community time, with beloved businesses like Waterstreet Hardware thriving thanks to a tight-knit community.

Caledonia Street is the heart of Sausalito, evident in its friendly vibe and annual parades and celebrations. It lights up for holidays, hosting events like Fourth of July and Halloween.
