If you get stressed when you can't find your hotel, your kids will get stressed, too. When you think of it as "exploring the neighborhood," everyone will feel better.
If you leave at night, especially if you are flying, you might get lucky and have your little one sleep the whole way. No guarantees, however.
Don't bring toys that have a lot of loose parts. Bring some favorites that you know will entertain your child for hours and bring a few surprises, preferably a toy or game that you know your child will not be bored with in a short time period. Art supplies and paper are a good fill-in.
