But now that travel restrictions between the US and Canada have finally been relaxed, we are now able to travel freely between the two countries.  Thereof course will still be some restrictions; you will need to be a fully vaccinated travel to make the trek across to Canada. Foreign travelers looking to come into the US will also be required to show proof of vaccination if they want to come to shop the outlets in Niagara Falls.

And while things are closer to being back to normal, The Centers for Disease Control warned United States travelers to avoid traveling to Canada at this time, due to the current COVID situation in the country.  The agency is sighting a steep increase in cases there, and they’re telling people to avoid traveling over the border at this time.

The easing of border restrictions effectively marks an unofficial reopening of the US to travelers, which opens up a new window for us to discover some new favorite things from the Great White North.

And sure there are the obvious things that we think of when it comes to great Canadian imports.  There's the music (Rush, Neil Young, Sum 41)  The Athletes (Wayne Gretzky, Larry Walker), and the Food (Tim Horton's). But there are so many other things that you may not know came from Canada.

From actors to inventions, to food and sports, we thought now would make for a great time to take a look at 20 of our favorite Canadian Imports of all time.

With The Border Reopening, Here Are 20 Remarkable Canadian Imports

7 Exciting Things To See And Do When Canada Opens

Going over the border has so many benefits for many Americans, people come from all over the world to Canada all the time. Buffalo and Niagra Falls residents are spoiled because we have the advantage of being so very close, for most people here the border is less than 20 minutes away. The thing that I have noticed over the years is, the main strip in Niagra Falls Ontario gets bigger all the time with more things to see and do. Did you know, that the first hotel was built on Ferry Rd. in the tourist area back in 1833? it's amazing to see all of the additions, even since the 90s.
