Math-related field trip destinations for Bay Area HS students?

I teach math to high schoolers in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'd like to get them out of the classroom on a field trip to a local math-themed destination. Any suggestions?

The destination doesn't need to be as completely all-about-math as the Museum of Math in NYC (though I would totally take them to the Museum of Math if it were nearby). Any place that can be tied in to a meaningful (and fun!) math lesson is fine. I'd rather it not be a theme park, though.
The students would be from math club and advanced classes (precalculus and up), so most are pretty sophisticated and enjoy math to begin with. It would be great to tie the trip in with something off the beaten path, curriculum-wise -- like if we could teleport to the Alhambra and try to spot as many symmetry groups as possible
. But we can't teleport to the Alhambra.
