We are getting closer and closer to holiday travel. Over 100 million Americans travel during the holidays and if you're one of them, Fort Wood Hotels has some travel tips to keep in mind when traveling over the holidays with kids. Read on to find out how to have a great time during your travels.

It is a win-win for everyon…
