I don't know as much about SF as I should but check out: 1) Golden Gate Bridge -- view from Marin Headlands especially (#1 thing to do I think) 2) Castro to get a taste of the "real" SF
3) For shopping Union Square is always fun, not sure about boutiques, or what kind you are looking for. 4) Ride the Cable Car that runs on the California line, it is less touristy 5) MoMA, Museum of Modern Art 6) lots of great restaurants though others can comment better than I can. Tenderloin district is supposed to be good but be careful! 7) Ferry Building - have some restaurants and farmer's market on the weekend. 8) Haight Ashbury is always interesting 9) Chinatown (which is kind of run down) - Hing Lung for some authentic cheap Chinese food. 10) Alcatraz 11) Golden Gate Park 12) Our hideous Warf 13) Ghiradelli Square 14) Japantown and walk up Fillmore 15) Serpentine on Lombard, the world's curviest street. 16) http://asiasf.com/
which is a tranny restaurant, never been... If you don't have exact change on MUNI you'll slow everyone down. This is inside SF. There are other things to do in the Bay Area as well if you are interested.
