Planning to spend a few days in Niagra and wish to visit the Outlet Shopping Centre on the US side of the falls. I am a UK citizen and wondered if anyone knew if I needed to apply for an ESTA
We are 2 couples (in our 60s) and will be in Vancouver for 3 nights next week. We plan to rent a car for one day (weather permitting) for some sightseeing outside of where we stay (which is downtown Vancouver). Originally we planned to go to Capilano park and Grouse mountain - both require an entrance fee of roughly $30 each. After some additional reviews, we learn of the Cypress mountain and Lynn Canyon. Not only admission to the latter is free, both sites offer what we were interested in seeing (a suspension bridge and the view of Vancouver). Could we skip Capilano and Grouse to save money?? while we try to save, we do not want to miss anything and would be happy to pay any fees to maximize our trip experience
My family and I have 3 weeks to spend in Italy and we need help on how to divide the 3 weeks to see the places in our wish list. Here is a sample of our itinerary: 3 full days Rome, 4 full days Amalfi Coast, 7 days Tuscany (how many days should we spend in Florence?) 3 days cinque Terre. We want a not too hectic vacation. Please help us!
I'm trying to maybe plan a short trip to New York City... I wanted to know if anyone had any experience in the area and would be able to help me in finding a CHEAPER but still NICE and CLEAN hotel around the Central Park area.
Is there a bus that go to Ile d' Orleans and Les Laurentides from Quebec City?
What are the best 10 attractions of Quebec City? Are they close to each other?
I am going to Eastern Canada in late September and will stay for 10 days. Where is the best place to see Northern Lights (e.g. Ontario and Quebec)? I heard that Northwest Canada had better views of Northern Light. I don't know if it is equally good in Eastern Canada. Any recommendation is much appreciated.
Is there any cheap and good hostel near downtown ?
i am travelling to niagara falls (USA side) and have a friend staying in Canada. do we have any such places near niagara falls, where we can meet . as i dont have a Canadian visa and my friend does not have a us visa.
We are planning a RV trip to BC this summer and want to go to Butchart Gardens. We will be taking a ferry from Anacortes, WA and want to make sure we will have enough time to see the gardens with travel time included. We have to small dogs that would be staying behind for the day or perhaps put into a kennel if we need more time. Would it be more economical and better to take our car or take a bus/cab or rent a car on the island? Can we do it in a day? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
Ok, so I have searched through several of the threads for suggestions for this, and I have found some. In July, four of my friends and I are visiting Toronto. We are wondering if it is worth it to use the TTC pass? Or would it be better for us to go by Taxi? We will be staying near the airport, but we will definitely be checking out the city. We will be there for four nights, and five days.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on these? Any odd shops that have unique pop culture gift items, vintage or modern -not the run of the mill travel souvenirs? Also, any cool boat rides to Vancover Island someone has taken? It doesn't have to be too long, like a cruise- just something about 20 Can dollars or fewer.
I have relatives in Toronto but dont want to spent the full 10 days there
3-4 days Toronto
3-4 days lakes area ? Lake Huron
2-3 days Niagara-on-lake do day trip to the falls
any suggestions on where to go in the lakes area, i have no idea what towns to go to or what is nice or what the region is called.
All must sees in Toronto?
I am thinking about taking a cruise in September from San Francisco to Vancouver. Does anyone have any thoughts about the cruise or the Canadian city?
Hi, my husband, our 4 year old daughter and myself are thinking about a trip to west Canada (from Ireland). We teach so have July and most of August off work. Although we have loads of time, we would be doing it on a shoe string!! Would like to know what people think; should we a) just focus on Vancouver and Vancouver Island (b) focus on the Rockies © try to do both - although I don't think we could afford it all at once!
We really want to get the 'real Canada' outdoorsy feel and would be staying in hostels (hopefully there are child-friendly ones about!!) any advice/opinions on what we should/could do?
Why is it still listed? Does the Hershey Co. know that they are still listed here?
Who founded Toronto, Canada?
My wife is travelling to Halifax, NS to meet my daughters studying there. She is travelling on a tourist visa. She carries two laptops with her for my daughters. What will be the total tax and duty liability at the airport in percentage terms? Please guide.
I am coming from Toronto and looking for 1 nights accommodation - central and nice but not too pricey although if it came with a great view I may consider paying more.
We are leaving to fly from Buffalo the next day at 12.35 so if you also know the best way to get from Niagara to Buffalo airport this would help too - I have been told you can jump a taxi cab and also maybe use a train/bus?
Slightly worried that border control could take a while!
Hi, I am visiting friends in Barrie for 3 nights and then I'm thinking of staying 1 night in Toronto before leaving for Niagara.
It will be December and I am wondering where's best to stay for just 1 night after a day sight seeing in Toronto?
Central but on a budget?
Any pointers on what to visit too? We are not into Museums or Galleries etc.
We're travelling from New Zealand to Calgary for the stampede, arrive 1st July/depart 8th. We're two couples and one of us has bad knees so we thought that we'd try to avoid public transport for him and opt for a rental car.
We've arranged parking in the grounds and seating for the parade;so far so good. The big question is parking for the parade. We're staying on 16th Ave NW and the parade breakfast is 7am at the corner of 8th Ave SW & 7th St SW. The plan is to leave early and drive to the 24 hour parkade at 722 8th Ave SW and be there by 6am.
No idea what traffic will be like then or how long to get to the parkade so any advice would be really helpful.
Also as our car rental is costing a hair raising $1883 CAD for 8 days (although this includes $199 one way drop off fee to Edmonton) we'd heard that some car sales will sell a car and then buy it back after a short term visit and pay approx $1000 less. Anyone know anything of this?
I know the sensible and cheaper option is to use the train but we're catering to our friend who can't stand for too long. Thanks for any advice.
In June I am visiting my husband in Ontario for 68 days, I am currently finishing my 2nd year in University and he has just recently graduated from college so we haven'd been able to apply for sponsorship and move in together yet. I was born in the UK and have lived here all my life, ive visited my husband a few times before and never had trouble at the border however now we are married I have been starting to worry thinking I'll be refused entry since they'll think I wont return home. What's the possibility of this? Is there anything I should bring with me?
Im worrying like crazy!
Hi, I am looking to visit Niagara (CA) for the day and then take a flight from Buffalo to NYC that night, how would we go about this without a car?
Is it OK to go just for the day? We will be travelling from Toronto that day. We could possibly stay 1 night and fly NYC the following morning but no point if nothing to do?
It'll be December so other than the actual looking at the Falls (doubt the boat trip will be on) is there anything else to do?
Thinking of planning a 1 - 2 month trip to Whistler and was wondering if there are any places to stay long term and what my best options for long term lodging would be.
Was also thinking about splitting up some of that time in Vancouver and am curious about travel to/from Whistler and Vancouver.
I am arriving by train from New York. How do arrive at 623 Prince Arthur St. W
We're heading for Maine later this year, and since we'll be passing so close to Niagara Falls, I'd like to see it. We plan to get to the town of NF, stay for the night, and leave at 10 or 11 the next morning. What's the best way to use our time? Can we get to a good viewpoint at sunrise? Riding the boat can wait for another time - we just want to get a good look and take some pictures.
what to get to vancouver island from vancouver , what is the best way, float plane or hire a car and use ferry??? thoughts please people, thank you
Hi, I will be driving from Madison Wisconsin to Niagara Falls in June and will be crossing the border at Sault Ste Marie. I would really appreciate some advice on the following: For an overnight stay which would you recommend, the usa or ontario side of the border? What route would you recommend for the onward journey? Is there a route that includes a car ferry crossing? 13 years ago I did a long drive around the great lakes and I remember taking a car ferry but cannot remember where from or where it arrived (across part of lake huron maybe?) I do remember really enjoying that ferry trip though and would love to find it again to enjoy with my children. I seem to recall spending a few hours on a lovely beach after the ferry crossing. Any clues and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
