How much can we see/visit w/o Canadian visa?

Hi,

We are considering driving to Niagara Falls, NY on the US side as we don't have Canadian visas. I wonder how much we will be able to see without having a Canadian visa (e.g. can we walk the bridge and see the falls close up without entering?).

Thanks a lot,

B.

You can see the Falls close up from many spots on the U.S. side, you just won't have the panoramic views that are available from the Canadian side. You can also do Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds.

You can walk onto the Rainbow Bridge, BUT, when you do, you have left the U.S. and will require your passports and paperwork to re-enter.

Is it a problem to enter the Canadian side with an emotional support animal with all its paperwork? Rabies verification etc? Thank you

Hi,

We actually just came back from it and I would like to say that the US side is also wonderful!

While most of the attractions may be on the Canadian side, it is possible to get very close and really enjoy the falls from the US side as well. Thanks for the replies.
