Growing up, crossing the American/Canadian border was second-nature in my family. Half my family lived in Canada, and the other half in the United States, so a trip to Canada wasn’t necessarily a big deal. When I finally learned that there were lots of people in Western New York who hadn’t ever left the United States, I was surprised. The border crossing was less than 30 minutes from my hometown. Another country was within easy driving distance.
Traveling is obviously a privilege, but in Western New York, at least, it is an accessible one. Crossing borders can be a great learning experience, and a fun summer activity for your family. What are some of your favorite things to do in Canada?
