    American conventioners coming to Niagara

    beer , liquor, and ciggys are taxed heavily in Canada - a SIN tax

    I would suggest before you cross border into Canada, that you stop at DUTY FREE store (24 hr) and stock up on supplies

    a sample of pricing for beer- http://www.thebeerstore.ca/
    for liquor - http://www.lcbo.com/entry.html

    duty free store http://www.dutyfreeamericas.com/


    once in Niagara Cuban cigars and other products are readily available

    Your right, beer is almost 2.5X the price I pay here. How much can I legally bring across? BTW.... I've been buying Guinness in celebration of the trip!
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    24 bottles per day might be rough.

    Looks like we’ll be making daily beer runs!

    Well my nuts still hurt if kicked, even tho there only decorations now, theyre not numb.

    I had no Idea there were drive up duty free stores. Only seen one in an airport. Actually..... look where Colorado is on this map.......



    I've never actually driven across any border of any country. Too far. Only in a plane.


    Numb nuts...... sheesh!
