What should we explore around the SF Bay area on short notice?

We've been to SF a few times before, and want to rent a car and explore the area surrounding the city this time around -- particularly to the North. Any budget-friendly suggestions? [more inside]

Unique gift from California

I'm looking for unique gifts/souvenirs from California for my sisters and girlfriend (all in their 20s) and for my parents. I'm traveling the length of the state so almost any location would work. I would prefer to spend $50 or less on each gift but I have some flexibility. Local/unique items or something specific to California would be perfect! Food can work but must be nonperishable as I have lots of driving to do.

Northern California vacation ideas

Northern California trip planning help please! I'm attending a wedding in the Sonoma region this summer and would like to plan a week-long Northern California trip ending in Geyserville. I'll be with family and need to stay in hotels or B&Bs, (not camping or not motels.) I'd love help with itinerary ideas, especially national parks/forests that might be fun for trips in the area. If you have stayed in nice hotels or B&Bs in Northern California, please share your suggestions. Kid-friendly ideas also appreciated. I've got a full week- would like to stay in maybe 2 or 3 locations (not necessarily moving every night).

Did our Real Estate agent do us a disservice, and if so, do we have any recourse?

We are selling our condo in California, and we got an offer at our asking price, we emailed our agent and said that we wanted to have another open house to see if we got any other offers. She agreed, and then emailed us a contract accepting the the bid with the message "sign this", which my wife did. As far as we can tell this means we have now sold our place, and cannot accept any other offers. Is that correct? If so, is what she did bad practice or something else, or are we just missing something here? Do we have any recourse? (There was another open house yesterday, and an agent tour tomorrow).
