Second the HW1 tip, thats a nice tour with many possible stops. Hearst Castle was somewhat cool for the story and location (the art and architecture is nice but not very special for europeans Id say).

In SF, Id recommend a stop at Humphrey Slocombe. Iconic little ice cream bar with tons of cool flavours. Magnolia is a great stop for lunch or dinner when youre doing Haights. If you want to go to Alcatraz, book your tour far ahead.

In San Diego I enjoyed the visit to USS Midway (carrier ship turned naval warfare museum).
