Summertime is travel time for most families. Before you take to the roads, skies or seas, do your homework. A little preparation could save your vacation from becoming a sequel to those popular National Lampoon movies.

2. For numerous articles on travel that include the best and worst times to go to Walt Disney World, travel scams, hi-tech camping and family safaris, visitwww.myprimetime.com/play/travel.

3. Read travel reviews from parents who have been there and done that at

4. Nothing can take you away like getting back to nature. Read detailed
descriptions and histories of parks at www.fodors.com/parks. The site includes all the information you need on how to get there, hints on what to pack and lodging for each park.

9. What utterance from the back seat of the car is worse than, "Are we thereyet?" How about, "I think I'm going to be sick"? Get tips on how to avoid motion sickness at www.sinuscarecenter.com/dizzyaao.html.

10. Last but not least, travelling with the beloved family pet is generating a lot of buzz. Get the low-down on travelling with Fluffy at
