Prospective and current residents of many cities throughout the country are also dealing with the effects of noise pollution. Possible solutions include double-paned windows, weather stripping, earplugs, white noise machines, and headphones designed for noise cancellation. These solutions are especially important to consider for anyone with small children. However, oftentimes the most effective solution is moving to an area that features less noise pollution. When my wife and I moved to Columbia, we asked our real estate agent how far we needed to live away from Merriweather to avoid the noise.

Silence is golden, and the purchase price can be as little as $40. I'm talking about noise-canceling headphones, originally developed to mask whining jet engines and sold at prices only first-class airline passengers could afford. Not that you should be oversold by the term "noise-canceling." What you really get is a reduction in background noise, not complete blocking of external sound. That makes it easier to hear what's coming through the headphone wire -- whether that's music, a radio station or the soundtrack of a movie.

Have you flown on any long flights lately? I said, have you flown on any long flights lately? It's loud inside a jetliner: 80 to 95 decibels, depending on the plane and on where you sit. That's as loud as a power mower - and it doesn't even include the crying kids. After a few hours in the noisy skies, it's hard to hear yourself think - unless you've brought a pair of noise-canceling headphones along for the ride. I tested some noise-canceling headphones on a recent trip, and I'll never travel without them again.
