These tips will help you make sure you get here without any qualms for an enjoyable trip in the region.

  1. When visiting Canada make sure you have your passport ready – entry into the country is prohibited without a valid passport.

  3. When planning your trip it’s a good idea to see what days the Canadian holidays fall on as there could be changes in operating hours during special holidays. That being said, Niagara Falls is typically at its busiest during holidays so make sure you arrive early!
  4. If you’re traveling with children always make sure you have proper identification for them and yourself when crossing the border. Children under the age of 18 will need permission from their parents/guardian if you are not the parent.
  5. Have your currency exchanged prior to crossing the border to make purchasing easier.
