4 Days from SFO - What To Do?

My buddy and I will arrive at SFO on Thursday, August 10 and we'll fly out again Monday morning (August 14).

I have a meeting Thursday afternoon, but apart from that we don't have anything planned yet.
I have only been to Southern California before, so I suggested we drive to Yosemite - but he's been there three times, so he's not that keen to go (he did, however, say he'd see if he can rent a small plane to fly us there as a compromise - not sure if that will work out though).

Do you have any other suggestions?
I bet there's more than enough to do in SF, but I'm fine with only 1-2 days in the city (especially considering the weather situation).
I'd rather see something else as well, maybe go on a roadtrip somewhere or so.
Flying somewhere else would be an option, too (especially on miles). I know it sounds crazy, but hey, this is Flyertalk after all.

Although the "Detweiler" fire is largely contained (S. of Yosemite), I'd tend to avoid that area due to high heat. https://sierranewsonline.com/update-...e-monday-9-am/

Unless you two crave high temperatures, the immediate Bay Area is the place to be in mid-August. Nice places to go just outside of the Bay Area, include Monterey Peninsula and Carmel; and, subject to temperatures, the Sonoma or Napa Valleys (wine country).

If you two are into museums, there are several great ones right in S.F., including a major Edvard Munch exhibit at SF MOMA.
