Headed to the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas this week! Anything I should make sure to do/see/eat?

Monterey Bay Aquarium. Go to the piers in SF. Go to some of the districts and walk around and admire the architecture. There's Coit Tower (Female Firefighter) which is neat. SF has a neat zoo and there's also the exploratorium if you like science. Just a few places that come immediately to my mind.

If you go to Chinatown in SF there's a little fortune cookie place in a back alley that's worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood: http://www.thebolditalic.com/articles/5082-a-look-at-sfs-tiny-fortune-cookie-factory

The Eastern Bakery is a good place in that neighborhood too, and a park near there has a marker for where the first public school in California was.

Outside of Chinatown, I enjoyed getting a roll from Boudin Bakery and eating it plain. There's a location at the airport too if you don't get to it until then (or if you want to do like I did and get one last sourdough bread before going home).
