Re: Do You Try to Avoid Kids While Traveling?
Well, it depends. I definitely prefer to avoid kids in enclosed spaces like planes because all too often they're NOT well-behaved. And if I'm trying to have a nice romantic dinner or something, it's always nicer to be in a quiet, adults-only environment.
That said, I don't go too out of my way to avoid kids -- partly because there's only so much you can do, and partly because I'm not going to skip out on something I want to see just because there might be kids there. For example, I recently went to the Baltimore Aquarium on a summer Saturday, and it was absolutely SWAMPED with little ones. (And they were pushy! I kept feeling little bodies against the back of my legs all day.) You've gotta expect tons of kids at a place like an aquarium, but hey, it's still a great place to visit.
