    After we head to Hudson, we are toying with the idea of seeing Niagra Falls (from the Canadian side). Anyone been? Worth the trip? Do we need a passport if we’re driving?

    It is around a seven hour drive from NYC. Worth crossing off your bucket list. I think you need a passport but may get by with a drivers license and birth certificate

    While there, you will be able to pay to see the falls from the side above the falls, from the side below the falls, from above, from below on a boat, from inside the falls, from Canada, from the US, at night.....by the time you leave, you are sick of them

    The prevailing plan is to hit Cooperstown for 1-2 days then move on to Niagara. We’re crossing the freedom bridge then staying at one of the hotels in Canada facing the Horseshoe falls.

    I noticed they put broccoli on their pizza in Canada. Is that some sort of attempt to be unique?

    Cooperstown itself is worth maybe a day, but the area and Finger Lakes region is very scenic

    Doesn't matter what Canadians put on their pizza, it still sucks. NYC pizza is the best...do your pizza pig out there

    If you like Asian food, there is a Korean bar on Avenue A called Fat Buddha that has great food, live DJs and good drinks. My wife and I love it and go there a few times on our trips to New York, and have to fight to not go there every night. We are there enough during the year that the staff thinks that we are New Yorkers, even though we live in Ireland.

    You most certainly do. "Driver's license will do" days for trips to Canada are over.

    On the upside, if you overstay your visa, Canadian authorities probably won't hunt you down. LOL
