Carry-on bags make it easier to make your way through the airport before starting a flight. If possible, stow your belongings in a carry-on bag that you have with you at all times. Use the following tips to pack your bag smartly.
Bring Versatile Pieces of Clothing
Instead of bringing multiple outfits for each day, bring a few foundational pieces that you can wear in different ways. You should include basic pieces like a nice pair of pants, a blazer or a cardigan, and a dress or a dress shirt. Bring enough undergarments for every day of the trip as well as accessories that help you wear your clothing in different ways. With a few t-shirts, you are ready for anything. You should have a comfortable pair of walking shoes, a pair of dress shoes, and a pair of sandals if you are traveling in the summer.
Roll Your Clothes
Rolling your clothing into your suitcase is one of the most efficient ways to pack. Not only does this save space inside your luggage, but it also prevents your clothing from wrinkling. Try to place your undergarments and socks inside of your shoes to save even more space while you pack.
Try to Leave Some Room In Your Luggage
Chances are that you are going to do some shopping while on vacation, so it is always a good idea to leave a little bit of room inside of your bag for new purchases. Planning ahead for shopping makes it much easier to re-pack your carry-on bag to go home.

The international terminal at the airport is a lively and exciting place full of people ready to fly all over the world. Whether you are flying internationally for the first time or just want to simplify the process, these tips can help you navigate the airport.
Get Your Travel Documents In Order
Before you even book your trip, take a look at your passport to make sure it will not expire before you travel. It is always a good idea to take photocopies of your passport and place them in a separate location in case something happens to your actual passport. If you can bring a copy to the American embassy, you can get replacement travel documents quickly. You can also register with the embassy before you leave in case you need to contact them while you are abroad.
Take Some Time to Pack
The kind of trip you are planning to take affects that way you should pack. If you are planning to travel to a few different locations, you probably want to bring as little as possible. If you will be in the same location for a bit of time, however, you might want to pack a larger suitcase and check it. If you do check a bag, be sure to place at least one extra outfit into your carry-on bag in case the airline loses your luggage.
Utilize Airport Parking
International trips are often longer than domestic ones, so leaving your car in an off-site airport parking facility to make it easier to get to your terminal. Long-term parking facilities allow you to avoid taxis and public transportation and instead drive in the comfort of your own car. No matter when your return flight arrives, someone will be at the facility to get you back into your vehicle.

Today, LaGuardia is one of the busiest airports in the country. Before it catered to so many domestic and international airlines, however, the land was actually the Gala Amusement Park. Keep reading to learn more about the transformation from activity center to air travel hub.
In 1929, Gala Amusement Park made the change into a 105-acre private flying field that was named after Glenn H. Curtiss. It was eventually re-named North Beach Airport. By 1937, the city took over the airport and added even more acres. It opened in 1939 under the name New York Municipal Airport-LaGuardia Field.
