Indoorsy weekend getaway ideas in the San Francisco Bay Area?

This is kind of an odd request, especially given how gorgeous the outdoors are in this region, but... anyone know of any fun and creative indoorsy weekend getaways?

It's been pretty cold around here, so some activities that I've ruled out are lounging on the beach, hiking, being at outdoor spas, and anything else that involves being outdoors for a long period of time.  I do know that I would like to get away to somewhere nice, though, that's maybe a 2-3 hour drive away from San Francisco in any direction.

I'm used to planning outdoorsy things to do, but I'm kind of at a loss for ideas for indoorsy things to do, so I'm hoping to get some ideas here.  Maybe a cool little town with a cute downtown area?  And a place to stay wherever those ideas are would be awesome, too!

    About 2-3 hours north of SF, is a little town called The Sea Ranch just before the town of Gualala. They have beautiful vacation homes for rent. A lot of these homes are owned by silicon valley execs, so they could have a ton of creature comforts. My friends and I used to take a weekend or 3 days trip up, sit inside the home, bbq in the yard, and sit in the hot tub and watch the sun set over the pacific. One of my favorite places to "get away" from it all, without going too far.
