Early on I promised travel tips and I haven't given you any for a while. So here goes...If you want to avoid stress, save some time and even money, avoid the major airports. Head to ones close by. For instance if you are traveling to San Francisco, fly into Oakland. Or if you are headed to New York, try Islip MacArthur in Ronkonkoma, Long Island. Check out http://www.alternateairports.com/.
