You are staying in a real inconvenient area that is out of the way and hard to get to...many travel/tour companies may not even offer a pick up if they do it may be an extra charge....the traffic across he bridge takes hours to cross during rush hour....can't help you in that one...my suggestion is change your hotel accommodations...your family will be miserable that far out...there is literally nothing around
