Cocoa the Therapy Pony, a Secret Movie Theater + More Hidden Gems at SFO

Apparently, SFO is brimming with convivial delights to pass the time.

After a delayed flight or an exceptionally long layover, it's easy to wonder where all the airport amenities are hiding. It only seems reasonable that the good food and best lounges are out there, somewhere. Fortunately San Francisco International Airport (SFO), our major travel hub, has received a series of renovations and expansions to improve the passenger experience and bring in more amenities in recent years; including a new addition to the therapy animal squad, Wag Brigade, Cocoa the pony. This holiday season, in between jetting off to see family and escaping to warmer climates, explore some of SFO's best hidden gems.

Travel can quickly turn stressful, which is why SFO introduced the Wag Brigade, a team of therapy animals trained by the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SFSPCA) to make the experience more enjoyable. The team, mostly consisting of dogs, now includes LiLou, a two-year-old Juliana breed pig, who has become a social media favorite, and recently welcomed Cocoa the mini pony.
