Heading out Tuesday for parts unknown. I've never seen Niagra Falls so I'm thinking about heading up there and then over to Port Dover, Ontario. If anyone has any info on the area let me know and post some pics and routes of the area.

Thanks

BTW whats the traffic like this time of year???

Luckily you don't need a passport til 2008 if you're a US citizen, but if you have a DUI conviction or other conviction, you may have to pay a $200 entry fee. It's rather amusing to sit at the border and have a newbie out of the CBSA grill you like you're going into Canada to wreak havoc on them......."Look slick, I'm only going here to watch your canadian ballet and drink some beer."

Since you're going to the Falls, once you cross the border, there's nothing but tourist traps near the bottom of the hill next to the falls, but the further you go uphill on Ferry St, the better the restaurants are, hotels, etc......and if you go alllllllll the way up to the top of the hill which turns into Lundy's Lane after cross QEW, you'll reach the mecca of sin.......Sundowners-one of the finer canadian ballets if I do say so myself.

If that's not your bag there is a casino right next to the falls, you can jump on the QEW and motor right to Toronto too, it's about 80 miles, nice ride on the bike for sure. Of course there's so much to do there, I can't begin to list it here.

You mentioned you're looking to go to Port Dover, London is right nearby, it's an awesome city, great food everywhere, lots of scenery :wink: . Good luck with your trip, not really sure what you're looking to do, if you have some interests you're hoping to check out, let us know, we'll try to help.

If you are bringing a member of the fairer sex along with you, check out "Niagara on the Lake". It is a neat little touristy type town about 25 minutes outside of the Canadian side of the Falls. She will undoubtedley love it, my ex would want to go there every time we visited the Falls. The drive there is also real nice, right along the river past some nice homes, parks, wineries... etc.

Also, get Canadian cash at your bank if possible, places like the casinos put the screws to you on the exchange.

If you time it bad, you can wait at the major boarding crossings for as much as an hour or so. Best time I have found to cross is early in the AM or mid-morning.

Hope this info helps... Have a good trip :mcrider:

dezzy, I live about 20 minutes from the border. If I can help you in anyway, let me know. I get out of work by about 1:00 so if you need a guide, I'm available. Tim
