Note to travelers flying into SFO:
If you have a lot of luggage to collect, and are traveling with small children, it might be easier to get the rental car and then go get the luggage. See, some genius decided that you have to go downstairs to get the luggage, back upstairs, up a ramp, down a hallway, and up another elevator to get the train, on the train to get to the car rental place, down the elevator to the sign in counter with the rental car, and down another elevator to actually get the car.
Thank goodness we had our own personal sherpa along to tote the luggage. (photo to follow soon).
PS - while most major cities allow you to stay on a highway to get out of the city, San Francisco is not that way. Don't be suprised when your GPS sends you through the streets of town, and don't try to get back on the highway. You'll only lose time. Just go with it, and enjoy the sights. :)
