    Border Crossing Regulations!

    by machomikemd Written Sep 27, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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.

    The Maid of the Mist Pool

    by OlenaKyiv Updated May 17, 2007

    Favorite thing: This is a great name for this place because without any doubt you can understand what it means. I couldn't see much of it on evening, when we arrived, but morning was the best time to enjoy the view of this poo. Actually I wouldn't say "the view" because so far the water from the Falls flying in the air doesn't allow to see anything but itself :-))

    Safety First

    by JennysTravels Written Oct 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There is always mist comming from Niagara Falls, especially right in the crook of the Horseshoe Falls. In the winter watch for black ice, it's very dangerous and extremely slippery. You may think the road is just wet, but it could be a patch of black ice. Just driver beware, there are plenty of road signs telling you just that. In the remaining months it's just really wet. Bring a raincoat.

    Favorite thing: These boats are ALL engine as they take you close to the falls -- between the sound of the water, the sound of the engine and the fact you are getting very very wet -- it is a total sensory experience!

    11. In the war of 1812, started by America, Canadians pushed the Americans back... past their 'White House'. Then we burned it... and most of Washington, under the command of George Cockburn who was insane and hammered all the time. We got bored because they ran away, so we came home and partied... Go figureā€¦

    14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and it lasted a little over an hour.

    21. We ALL have frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.

    22. A Canadian invented Superman.

    23. We have coloured money.

    24. Our beer advertisements kick.

    BUT MOST IMPORTANT!

    25. The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on. OOOoohhhhh Canada!

    26. And we don't bomb our allies.

    27. oh yeah... our elections only take one day.

    Beluga Whales, Marineland

    by kris-t Updated Mar 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Arctic beluga whales are one of the most popular members of Marineland's marine mammal family.

    This gregarious whale can be up to 5m (16 ft) long, larger than all but the largest dolphins but smaller than most other toothed whales. Males are generally larger than the female - males can weigh 1.5 tons and females about one ton. Newly-born Beluga are about 1.5m long and weigh 80kg.

    Fondest memory: Belugas are also very playful, friendly mammals, you can feed them here

  • Crest of Horseshoe Falls

    by CoAir13 Written Sep 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Standing at the crest of these falls and being hypnotized by the water. The high mineral content makes the water a pretty shade of blue-green...an amazing sight. If not for the throngs of people, I could sit hit for hours and watch it!

    Currency Exchange

    by tpangelinan Written Jul 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Do you currency exchange as you just go over the bridge, here you know you will get the proper exchange. You will have no problem using US currency in Canada but when you go to the casino you may have a little bit of a problem. But if you are from the USA DO NOT TAKE ANY CANADIAN MONEY HOME, you bank will change you to change your money, my bank wanted to charge me $35.00 for $30.00 Canadian. So now I have another souvener.

    Speed limits

    by tpangelinan Written Jul 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Remember if you are American the speed limits are in KMH not MPH so watch your speed, I don't think you want to get pulled over for speeding in an other country now do you? If you are traveling up the Niagara Parkway on the Canadian side it is a slow boat to China at 40 to 60 KMH but it really only takes about 15 or 20 minutes depending on traffic to get to Lake Ontario from Ranbow Bridge. The views are so nice you really don't mind going slow so you can take it all in and you may find yourself going even slower and stopping at the beautiful parks along the way and pull offs to take in the views.

    Table Rock House

    by tpangelinan Written Jul 14, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Check out Table Rock House, it is a visitor center with a food court, shopping and tours. Located in front of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian Side and across from the parking lot. Plenty to do around this area, this is also where you go for the Journey Behind the Falls tours on the Canadian. So stop in for more information and a bite to eat.

    Park on the other side

    by joanj Updated Aug 9, 2004

    Favorite thing: This shows the park on the other side of the Niagara River on the American side, as mentioned in the other tip.

    This side of the river is not so crowded,so you do not have to jostle to get your photo taken with the falls in the background, like you do on the Canadian side.
