5. Go Visit Jaws
Schedule a face-to-face with the man in the grey suit while he's visiting the Farallon Islands this fall. Great White Shark Adventures will gladly get you safely beyond the Golden Gate, where you'll go down in a shark cage to stare a 16 million-year-old predator in the beady eye.
$775. Departs from Superfish Dock, Emeryville (888-255-1528).
