Train Station to Hotel

by Brandykat

Traveling by train in June from New York to Niagara Falls station on American side. We're staying at Embassy Suites on Canadian side. Any suggestions on how we get to our hotel? Cab??? How expensive??

Re: Train Station to Hotel

by johngayton

Why not just get the train to NF Canada? OK there's going to be a delay for border controls on the train but you're still going to get a similar delay whichever method you choose to cross the border, including by cab.

I would presume the cab fare will depend on how long it takes to go through border controls which will vary according to time of day, how busy the crossing is etc.

Travel Tips for Niagara Falls

Border Crossing Regulations!

by machomikemd

Border/Customs Information

Visitors from the United States currently do not need a passport to enter into Canada. US citizens will however, need proof of citizenship. A US birth certificate, Certificate of Citizenship, or Certificate of Naturalization, are all considered valid documentation. You will also need valid photo identification such as a drivers licence.

Visitors from outside of North America must have a valid passport to enter into Canada. A valid VISA may also be required usually for Non-EU countries except Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Singapore.

Please note when travelling with children you should carry valid identification for each child. Adults travelling with children other than their own must have written consent from the parent or guardian stating that they have permission to be travelling with the children.

Visitors bringing their pets with them will require documentation as well. Dogs and cats that are at least three months old need valid certificates from their veterinarian confirming that they have been vaccinated against rabies within the last three years. Dogs and cats that are younger than three months old do not need a rabies vaccination certificate to enter into Canada.

See the falls! Obviously they are the main attraction. You can view the falls from either the American side or the Canadian side. I recommend the Canadian side. The view is spectacular. Of course you have to take a boat tour!The tour guides hand out ponchos, but they don't keep you from getting wet. It is mind boggling experience; being so close to the powerful falls.

approach to the Falls with...


approach to the Falls with the Maid of the Mist : a boat which goes to the bottom of the Falls. The journey lasts 30 mn. There is a departure each 15 mn from 9:15 to 8PM. The Falls are one of the major destinations (with Venice) to the honeymoon.
Oscar Wilde came here in 1882 and said : 'The Falls must be the second disapointment of a bride groom'.

Canada is not to different...

Canada is not to different from the United States, but obviously there are somethings you should know.
*Getting into Canada is simple. Just drive over the bridge and you're there. The border guards will ask how long you plan to stay and if you are carrying alcohol or firearms. No passports needed.
*You can exchange your American dollars into Canadian money at an exchange office. There is one right when you cross the border. Cashiers will accept American money, but then you are not getting the best deal (example-The price tag says 1.50 Canadian, if you give them a 1.50 American, you've basically given them .70 to much). It is better to exchange. If you have left over Canadian money after your trip, you can exchange it back in America.

Packing List

by Krystynn

Clothings? What clothings?? Don't worry too much about packing too many clothings with you... If this is a full day trip for you (very rush!), then you don't need to worry about packing. But if you're intending to stay for the weekend, then I guess, you should just pack enough for 1 or 2 days. I ALWAYS, ALWAYS bring along at least 2 camaras with me... just in case one breaks down. My friends used to laugh at me.... until their one and only camera broke down. When when they have to RELY SOLELY on me and my amateurish photographic skills, they stopped laughing. Yes, immediately. Serve them right! :-)) If you are going to do lots of walking and sightseeing, do remember to put the following items into your tote bag or backpack:

Maps and perhaps phrase books. Your all-important Guidebook. Water bottle. Sunglasses.... etc.

DON'T forget to bring along your much-treasured ATM card to withdraw cash. Yes, no need to rush to the money-changers to change all your currencies into
American dollars before your trip.

And DON'T use your Visa or Mastercard to withdraw cash. This is considered a CASH ADVANCE and you'd be slapped with a HEFTY fee whereas if you were to use YOUR own ATM card, you will NOT be charged for any fees.

In fact, you WILL benefit and enjoy from the low interbank exchange rates. Trust me (I used to work for an American bank).

Just ensure that you adhere to the following steps:

o Flip to the back of your local ATM card, do you see the logos 'Cirrus', 'Plus', 'The Exchange' etc. on it?

o If the answer is 'yes', then you have absolutely nothing to worry about!

o Why? Because you can withdraw cash from any ATM machines in USA/ Canada, no matter how obscure the town you're at is.

o If you use this method, you'd also save alot from the interbank exchange rates. Money changers will charge you much, much more compared to a bank.

I've been using this method countless of times before and so far, no ATM machines in this world have failed me.... yet. Yes, even in the remotest village of Africa!

Have a great trip!
