I would spend a day or maybe half a day in Monterey.  It’s a very quaint little town that’s really romantic.  They have a great aquarium and canary row, from the Steinbeck novel, is really fun.  Another fun thing might be to drive out to Sonoma or Napa for a day and do some wine tasting.  There are some fabulous restaurants there as well, (we really enjoyed The Girl & The Fig.  It’s a short drive from SF.  If neither of you have been to Alcatraz before I highly recommend it. I’ve been to SF plenty of times but only went there on my most recent trip and was really impressed.  The history is amazing and the audio tour is so well done.  The island itself is also quiet beautiful.

Early congrats to you!  What about driving through Pismo Beach or Santa Barbara?  I want to go to Pismo Beach and ride dune buggies and do wine tasting in Santa Barbara.

The whole Highway 1 drive is incredible.  You should definitely check out Monteray Bay and the Aquarium.  Also, if you are interested, Hearst Castle is on the way by San Simean.  The whole house really is incredible.  And by the beach there you can see elephant seals.

i second monterey. fisherman’s wharf is the best, and there’s free chowder samples all the way down.

also, stop by santa cruz..downtown is awesome, the redwoods are awesome..i lovee santa cruz..

and take a look to see if there are any events going on while you’re in sf (with yelp or sfgate.com). there’s ALWAYS something going on in the city, it could be fun to check out the scene.

Santa Barbara is nice, Carmel/Monterey is nicer, Santa Cruz is fun, and, if you’re into that sort of thing, I would DEFINITELY take a day trip from SF to Sonoma! We were there on our honeymoon and it’s beautiful, and fun!
