Grand Nave Illumination At San Francisco Ferry Building
There will be a veritable holiday feel added to the Ferry Building located at the end of Market Street, just steps from the Hotel Griffon come November 21, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. That's when the illumination of the lights on the iron trusses will take place in the Grand Nave, the main section of the Ferry Building. The lights, which have been totally restored, will remain up until New Year's Day. Of course, once you're at the Ferry Building for the ceremony, you'll want to scope out the collection of both large and small food vendors that make up the Marketplace that borders the Grand Nave. Savor everything from artisan cheeses and fresh local fish to sinfully delicious chocolates. You'll also discover a wide array of restaurants serving an eclectic cuisine along with comfy caf├ęs, home to some of the finest coffee drinks anywhere. There are also fabulous food trucks in front where you'll be able to dine on truly unique meals. And don't forget to check out the back of the Ferry Building, which offers stunningly gorgeous views of the San Francisco Bay.

The Ferry Building is one of the most historic sites in San Francisco. The current structure was built in 1898, replacing the original wooden building from 1875. When it opened, it was the hub for all transportation into the City. If you lived in the East Bay or Marin County before the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge were built, the only way to get there was by ferry. Ferries continue to operate for both locals and tourists alike.
