"Before traveling with young kids, buy a present-something quiet-for each one. Then when you arrive at your hotel, sit the kids down and tell them you're giving them a "hotel gift." While they play with their new toys, you'll be able to unpack in peace. Plus they'll have a souvenir, so you won't have to purchase something you know they won't use." —Debbie Roche, Winterville, N.C.
