Just wanted to say "Thank You" to the people of this Forum for all your help. My family and I just returned home after having spent 10 days in your beautiful city. We loved (almost) everything about it. We stayed at the Cornell Hotel de France (nice hotel and awesome staff) and we did many of the main attractions such as Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, etc ... Everything was just wonderful. Yes, of course, we also rode the Cable Car, twice, and my daughter loved it. She got to stand on the outside step which she thought was the coolest thing in the world.
My only 'minor' complaint has to do with the BART ticketing system/policy. At the SF airport, I paid $9 for a BART ticket for my daughter, which is supposed to have a $24 value. When we arrived at the Powell station, her ticket was rejected because it got demagnetized somehow. Although, my wife's ticket and mine were okay. Long story short, we ended up having to pay another $3.25 to have her ticket re-magnetized. At the end of our trip, my daughter tried to enter the BART station at Powell. Once again, her ticket was rejected. You guessed it, it was demagnetized. So, we had to pay another $3.25 to get it working again. At the end of the day, her return trip on the BART costed ($9+$3.25+$3.25) a total of $15.50, which is almost as much as what I paid for my 2 tickets.
Like I said, a minor complaint. For all you future travellers who plan on using the BART, please be careful where and how you store your tickets. :-)
Thanks again everyone for your help.
