Why They Like It: Where else are you able to sip New york wine, snag a few loafs of sourdough bread, & squeeze in an "ohm" or before your flight? Though the most-buzzed-about recent addition to SFO is its quiet, yet pocket-sized ( 150 square feet) Yoga Room, located in the pretty Terminal two, there is plenty else about this smart airport to make travelers smirk. The Airport Museum hosts fascinating art, science, & cultural exhibits, while a branch of the Steinhart Aquarium has aquatic wildlife from around the globe. Stock up on nifty souvenirs like cube clocks & collapsible colanders at the SFMOMA Museum Store, or make like a Bay Area foodie at local favorites like The Plant CafÃ© for tasty, organic fare, the Anchor Brewing Company for its beloved beer, & Perry's, an outpost of San Francisco's classic tavern.
Insider Tip: For a tasty flight before your flight, grab a chair at Vino Volo in Terminal two, which serves up pours of New york wines perfectly paired with small plates.
