SUMMER IN San Francisco is a great time

to grab the kids and head down to the Embarcadero to explore the many wonders of the Exploratorium. This is more than a museum, the exhibits are all hands on, and both children and adults can engage and explore. Everyone can walk through a tornado, cross a bridge of fog or step inside the newest exhibit, “Inflatable.” These gigantic air-filled artworks are on display all summer. Afterwards, visit La Mar, one of my favorite waterfront spots, where you can indulge in some authentic Peruvian food, sip on one of the signature cocktails and enjoy the spectacular views of the bay!

#cowgirlcreamery #wheretraveler wheretraveler.com/ seizethestay

My new favorite way to unwind after a long day in the office is to grab a stool at Cowgirl Creamery’s Sidekick Café in the Ferry Building for the new Cheesemonger Roundup. It’s a refreshing alternative to a traditional happy hour, especially if you appreciate good cheese. I recommend chatting with the cheesemonger about your preferences before ordering a tasting of five cheeses (expect plentiful accoutrements) and a glass of wine from Scribe Winery. There’s also Domaine Carneros bubbly and new recipes from Lagunitas Brewing Company if that’s more your thing, and the people watching is great too. Stop by on a weekday from 3:30-6:30 pm.

Hundreds of these stairways are sprinkled throughout the city’s diverse neighborhoods, and seeking them out will point you to marvelous hidden corners. They offer clues to the city’s history and architecture and a hiatus from metropolitan clamor. Some of these steps are known landmarks, and others are simply quiet corridors used mostly by neighboring residents. In many cases, the climbs are rewarded with dramatic views of the urban landscape meeting the sea. Perhaps the most famous is the Filbert Street Steps.

PLAY BALL! AT&T PARK IS the first

privately financed MLB stadium since 1962. Its design is inspired by the two oldest stadiums in baseball, Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. There's the brick exterior; the out-of-town scoreboards from another era (still manually operated by three employees) and the giant, 1927 four-fingered glove in left field. Other attractions include the 80-foot Coke bottle and slide and a center field garden that supplies two in-stadium restaurants. Perhaps the most identifiable feature of AT&T Park is the splash hit; big flies can clear the right field wall and plunge into McCovey Cove. If you’re not watching the game from a kayak, you’re probably sitting in one of the stadium’s 41,503 seats. Batters actually stand closer to the front row than they do to the pitcher, while the seats farthest away from the action provide the best views of the surrounding bay. 20

Just a few years ago, the Mid-Market neighborhood was neglected and full of vacant storefronts, but it’s slowly been coming into its own, a process accelerated by the arrival of the Twitter and Uber headquarters. Today you can grab groceries, sundries or a to-go meal at a gleaming market, shop for a new pair of wheels and get a trim at a stylish barbershop.

You can have a fine dinner at the cool Kaya, serving modern Jamaican cuisine (Salt cod fritters! Jerk chicken salad!) from chef Nigel Jones and California cuisine leader chef Daniel Patterson. Or as a more casual alternative, order the American burger and fries at the crowd-pleaser Popsons. A large urban farmers market sets up by City Hall on Wednesdays and Sundays.

SAN FRANCISCO’S ICONIC Ferry Building anchors Market Street, with two symmetrical wings extending from its 245-foot tower like open arms welcoming travelers to the waterfront. This legendary Embarcadero structure has served as a symbol of the city for more than a century, starting as a major transit hub and standing tall through two major earthquakes to become today’s community gathering space and culinary destination. Before bridges spanned the San Francisco Bay, the Ferry Building served as a major entry point for passengers arriving from the north and east. Soon after its 1898 opening, the structure saw more than 50,000 commuters each day—and that made it the second busiest transit terminal in the world. “Passengers came through the secondfloor grand hall and walked down the historic stairs under the clock tower to the foot of Market Street. They were greeted by dozens and dozens of trolley cars and train lines,” says Jane Connors, general manager at Equity Office, the company that manages the Ferry Building. By the late 1930s, however, cars started crossing the newly constructed Bay and Golden Gate bridges. Two decades later, a new double-decker freeway opened to Embarcadero traffic and visually separated the Ferry Building from downtown San Francisco. Soon, local ferry companies ended service. The terminal was divided into offices, and linoleum was laid over the second floor’s stunning marble mosaic tile. Though ferries eventually returned, the Ferry Building remained an afterthought until the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. As the damaged Embarcadero Freeway was removed, it sparked a community-wide conversation about the waterfront. “When that was taken down, it connected the Ferry Building all along Market Street and up to Twin Peaks,” says Connors. “There was suddenly this new interest in the building, and you started to see what San Francisco was meant to be.” That multi-year design discussion led to a $110 million restoration project that brought the stately Beaux Arts Ferry

Building back to life. Builders refurbished four 22-foot diameter clock faces on the central tower. Crews rebuilt skylights in the 660-foot Grand Nave. Craftspeople replaced nearly 140,000 individual mosaic tiles and rehabbed marble cornices and wrought-iron trusses. New cutouts connected various floors of the building, flooding the interior with natural light. Finally, inviting storefronts were carved out of street-level stalls that once stored luggage and supplies. Today, those stalls house local food purveyors, boutiques and cafes, along with cookware shops and wine retailers. “Because the store facades stay open— there’s no glass on them—it creates this really convivial experience,” says Connors. “It’s like a little main street. There is a 25-foot wide interior path that people walk down, going from shop to shop. You discover things in a very organic way.”

Before bridges spanned the San Francisco Bay, the Ferry Building served as a major entry point for passengers arriving from the north and east. After selecting a stylish stem vase from Heath Ceramics, for example, shoppers can sample olive oil at McEvoy Ranch or swing by Prather Ranch Meat Company for a sandwich. Depending on the hour, the scent of Cowgirl Creamery’s grilled cheese, warm herb slab from Acme Bread Company or fresh Blue Bottle Coffee might fill the air. Blue Bottle Coffee was one of the Ferry Building’s earliest tenants, and it remains a popular stop for downtown employees, shoppers and travelers. “Our Ferry Building space is beautiful. It’s a bit like a modern library, architecturally,” says Blue Bottle’s Vanessa Gates Mowell. “It was incredibly special for us to have one of our first brick and mortar locations at a building where we had our modest farmers market stand for years.” Several Ferry Building businesses got their start at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, a weekly staple since 1993. The event debuted as a one-time gathering in the Embarcadero roadway, a few years after the freeway came down. It now takes place every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, linking local farmers with a vast urban audience. “The Ferry Building and the farmers market have really transformed this area, making it not only a tourist destination but also a food destination,” says Marcy Coburn, executive director of the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), the nonprofit that runs the market and associated educational programs. “It’s an incredibly compelling location ... it’s also a great way to experience the city.” Bill Crepps, owner of the farm Everything Under the Sun, has been selling at the Ferry Building since the first farmers

market set up there. His clientele includes both residents and chefs from Nopa, Contigo and other respected San Francisco restaurants. CUESA estimates that some 400 area chefs source fresh, seasonal ingredients from Ferry Plaza Farmers Market vendors. Crepps also serves travelers searching for tasty souvenirs. “It’s become an event as well as a farmers market. I hear a lot of people say, ‘Oh, I can put this in my suitcase and take it home...’” says Crepps, who sells fresh produce plus sun-dried fruits and other travel-friendly foods. When they’re done sampling local cuisine and shopping for San Francisco keepsakes, visitors will find plenty of other activities at the Ferry Building. Benches on the promenade overlook the bay and offer scenic views. Photos inside and in front of the building outline waterfront history. Several culinary and city tours pass through the structure. And, the Ferry Building is considered a catalyst for new neighboring waterfront attractions such as the Exploratorium on Pier 15. Repurposing yesterday’s structures can reinvigorate neighborhoods for years to come, explains Mike Buhler, president and CEO of San Francisco Heritage. His nonprofit leads local preservation and advocacy efforts, and he calls today’s Ferry Building a well-planned example of adaptive reuse. “One of the central tenets of historic preservation is that historic buildings must have an active use, and must be valued by people, in order to survive and thrive,” he says. “The revitalization and rehabilitation of the Ferry Building not only restored its historic features, but also successfully ensured that it will have an active, thriving use well into the future.”

GOURMET SOUVENIRS

WHERE IN SAN FRANCISCO

We’re addicted to tiki bars

For more great bars in the city visit wheretraveler.com

WHE RE I J U LY 2018

Trad’r Sam It still holds the nostalgia of a tiki bar in its heyday. The bartenders are friendly, the beer is relatively cheap and it's always a good time, whether you're alone and just want to unwind or spending time with your friends. It’s one of the city’s original tiki bars, and some say one of the oldest tiki bars remaining. Sevan Araneda, bar manager, Last Rites, @lastrites_sf

Smuggler’s Cove It represents the passion

of the owner and bartender Martin Cate, who creates delicious, fun cocktails with the quality and integrity you would expect from a San Francisco bar. It's also a cozy little spot that has all the kitschy, fun trappings of a tiki bar. Anjan, co-owner, DOSA, @anjan

Hawker Fare My go-to tiki spot is Hawker Fare. It has awesome food too and is right by my house. (Drink order: Virgin Sacrifice or Zombie.) Ryan Farr, owner, 4505 Meats, @4505meats

Luau Lounge I love this bar on Pier 39. It has a great view, and you have to go through the arcade to get to it. Rosemary Noriega, concierge, Hotel Zetta San Francisco, @hotelzetta

Forbidden Island It offers a non-kitschy tiki experience. And since it’s in Alameda, I make a day of it and hit the island. Colby Heiman, director of operations, Sorrel, @sorrelrestaurant

COURTESY SMUGGLER'S COVE

 Tiki bars were popularized in the United States in the 1930s, and in San Francisco they’re still a hit. Summers might be cool and foggy around here, but a rum-based drink with an umbrella can bring the vacation vibes. We asked local experts where they go when they’re in the mood for a tropical cocktail.
