Crossing from Niagara Falls NY to Niagara Falls ON

Arriving on NY side 7/16 for one night stay. Want to stay on Canadian side but need to be back on NY side next day to catch train into NYC. Easy to do or complicated? I have passport.

You could also catch the train on the Canadian side to NYC if you wanted. It is an Amtrak train, the same one you will catch from Niagara Falls, NY.

Either way, whatever you choose to do it is relatively easy to do.

Hi Catector;

Yes, it is very easy. The Rainbow Bridge is 1/4 mile long. Once you enter the bridge, you have left your "host" country, so be sure to carry your passport with you...even if to only take pictures.

Be sure to bring your camera, as the views are breathtaking !!!

Best Regards

Welling, United...

Well if you told us where you are from we could answer that question... we're not mind readers...and an ESTA means nothing to this country.

Gareth, please ask your question on your own thread, its considered rude to hijack a thread.

You might add to your profile what country you are from. A ETSA is of no value when land crossing into Canada. Flying in you need an ETA.
