Place to store luggage near SF airport?

I am flying into San Francisco (SFO) airport early morning on Monday next week and have an entire day to sight-see before heading to Sunnyvale for work meetings next day. I would love to go see the Golden Bridge from the airport, however, I will have my luggage with me and it would be great if i could store it somewhere for about 6-8 hours and then pick it up on my way to Sunnyvale. Is this realistic and/or reasonable? This will be my first time visiting SF. Are there any recommendations where I can leave my stuff securely for a day? Thank you for your suggestions!

Business or Leisure?

I'm ridiculously nervous crossing borders (no reason, I'm frantically law abiding which is probably the reason actually). I'm obsessing over whether to answer "business or leisure" at the US border. [more inside]

A chilled Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. What to do?

My wife, 12 year-old son and I will have a free afternoon and evening in San Francisco this coming Thursday. We fly in the afternoon before from the UK, will probably take bikes over the golden gate bridge in the morning, and we'd like to soak up a bit of SF in the afternoon and evening, before we head off on a road trip for the following three weeks. Yay! So what to do? Where to go? And perhaps somewhere relaxed and nice to eat in the evening? [more inside]

An itinerary for Groningen

I am traveling to Groningen, NL, for work in August. I am planning to stay an extra whole day to take in the city. It will be Friday Aug 18th. What should I put on my itinerary? I have looked at travel websites and the like and I'm sure I can find a good list of interesting things to see and do, but I'm looking for your personal highlights of the town. Less critical, but any suggestions for quirky places to stay? Hotels that are central seem very reasonable, so I'm not as concerned about that.

Affordable beach-area hotel in Sarasota?

Last minute, have to be in Sarasota, FL on Saturday night. I'm looking for an cheap, independent beach hotel to stay at. Mom and pop places are fine and welcome. Doesn't have to be right on beach, can deal with a few blocks away. Under $70 a night would be fantastic. Thanks.

Should I stay in Leiden, and if so, what should I do there?

I'm attending a conference at Leiden University in about a month and a half, and urgently need to finalize my travel plans. I've never been able to visit Europe before, so I'm considering staying in Europe a few days after the conference. I don't want to spend a lot of time traveling, though, so I'm deciding between either spending the entire time in Leiden, or going to perhaps one other city. [more inside]
