Going to Michigan in a few weeks and was looking to drive over to Niagra Falls for a day since there's some great deals on Groupon for rooms, but the only thing holding me back from booking is I can't find a definitive answer as to if a passport is needed for me and my family.

Do I need a passport to go into Canada for a 2 day tourist visit?
Some places online say yes, some say no.
Can't make heads or tails of it from the State department website. Tried to call the Embassy to ask, but just got a directory listing and nobody answered the phone.

Any help is appreciated.

You will need one. Some border states have some sort of specialized drivers license available for their residents that exempts this, but you won't apply to this.

Well, it's only an additional 45 minutes to drive around and go through Ohio, PA and NY, so I guess I'll do that.

Just an FYI: If your looking for a good view of the falls, there is none on the American side. You'd need to venture into Canada for that.

We will be taking the Maid of the Mist while there. Hopefully it's sufficient. I went several times as a kid, but my wife and kids haven't been

I wanted to go to Niagara Falls with my family and fell into the same quandary as you have.

The bad news is that you and each member of your family will need a Passport.

The good news is that you just need the cheaper Passport Card instead of having to get the more expensive Passport Book.

Do the passport card if it helps you avoid 80/90 in Ohio. Construction zones and single lane travel galore.
