Hi, Ana. I had a great time on my trip, thanks to the recommendation of the good folks here on one of your links above. There is so much to do, and you're lucky you have more time. My time was limited to 2-1/2 days and one full day. I'll be back though.
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge. I walked it, but if you ride it, you can go farther. Loved the walk and the views, but it's quite windy. I also visited the Japanese Garden in Golden Gate Park (I think that was the name). Very lovely. My most fun time was going on a bike tour of San Francisco. I don't remember the company name, but you can ride your own bike; I rented one. I was the only one signed up and they required a minimum of two riders, so I paid for an invisible 2nd person and got a private tour with an ex-history teacher as the ride leader. They know how to zigzag around the really steep hills. Got to see lots of neighborhoods, views and history of SF. I visited Rivendell. I did more, but I cannot remember specifics. I wanted to do so much more, but didn't have the time. Probably 30 years ago, I visited and went to Muir Woods and Chinatown. If you're a museum person, be sure to find out the days they are closed. I was without a bike. I stayed at a hotel in Oakland--Hilton? Hampton Inn?-- (SO much less expensive than SF) and took the free city bus to and from the train station each day and then trained into SF. However, there are lots of bikes there, so you could ride your bike to the station, if you're OK locking it there. I don't know the rules for bringing a bike on the train. That line is really convenient and can take you to/from the airport and to/from Rivendell. Hope you have a great time and post some pics.
