Jet Lag-- First day advice

Jump to last reply

My family (husband, self, and two teens) are traveling to Paris for Christmas. We have never traveled outside of the US/Canada/Mexico/Caribbean and are not at all prepared for the jet lag we have heard so much about.

What are your best tips and advice for dealing with jet lag?

We fly from Phoenix to Detroit on Saturday then board and fly to Paris over night. We arrive in Paris at 8:30am and will obviously have had little sleep. We are staying in an apartment in the 5th. Right now I plan to get to the apartment for keys and drop off our things. I've been told NOT to shower because people will fall asleep while we wait for each other to get ready. I want to head out to walk around Notre Dame, pick up a savory crepe, walk around the Latin Quarter, have lunch, and pick up the necessities for an easy breakfast the following morning before we settle in. I've heard we should try to stay up until at least 6pm.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Tips?
Greatly appreciated!
