Long Description:
Canadian highway to the waymark is highway 137 while in the United States is interstate 81. I can't count the number if times I've crossed this border crossing over the years. For the most part it has been without issue. No rejections, a couple thorough check-ups on the way over and searches on the way back. Honesty is usually the best policy and often leads to just getting waved through even when you're well over the allotted limit.

Duty Free stores are located heading into each country. If you've been over a minimum of 48 hours you get tax free saving on such items as alcohol, tobacco, perfume and other items.
