Thanks Everyone!

There are many items mentioned that I was aware of and many more that hadn't occured to me.

As for the money situation - no one needs to worry as I don't have $10,000 available to bring with me on vacation. Although, it would be really nice if I had that much.

If anyone else has any tips I sure would appreciate hearing them.

Canada doesn't have the same kind of watch list as the US, and it's not nearly as easy to get on.

How do I get on this list?

I have been going to the States for years, and they never gave me a watch! :hihi:

We travel to the States often and the list changes frequently. At one time we were allowed to bring in vegetables, but not meat, other times meat but not vegetables. Last year we had our peppers and tomatoes seized, due to some outbreak of insects in Ontario that affected those two. Any product of USA is allowed to be brought back in to the USA. Here's a link that will answer your question: https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...r-personal-use
There are also rules for bringing pets into the States. We have 2 Golden Retreivers and have been asked on a few occassions to show their vaccination records. There are specific rules for dogs under 8 months of age, as well.
For the most part we have no problems, but we buy the majority of groceries in the States, to avoid any hassles. They have better selection and lower prices most of the time anyways. Enjoy your trip.

I understand there are restrictions on the food, etc. you can bring from Canada into the US.

Does anyone from Canada have any advise on what we should/should not bring into the US with us and any advise for crossing the border.
In addition, should have animal vaccination records, receipts for "expensive" items(camera, computers, jewelry, watches, etc). US or Canadian customs very seldom check, but they can and anything which might be subject to tax etc. you might have to prove where and when you purchased the item. Both will sometimes randomly pull some one out of line and check inside vehicle and RV.

I have never paid to cross into the states. I just got back from a weekend in Washington. We do most of our fresh food shopping there it is way cheaper than Canada. Dairy is about half price and beer is over half price. Just so our American friends know we pay about $48 for 24 beer. I just bought 24 MGD's for $18.

$48 for a case of beer? Holy cow.

If you take your "expensive" items to Canada Customs before crossing into USA, they will give you a "Green Card" which is good for as long as you own that item. I have a few for some things like a camera. One time, I took my boat with trailer into the USA. Before crossing into the USA I asked Canada Customs for the Green Card, and was told "you don't need one for that". When I came back into Canada, guess what they asked for? Yup, do you have proof of where you purchased that boat. Boy was I pissed. They let me through, but I was wiser for the experience.

This is a great website. Thanks! We'll probably do our food shopping in the US, but this site has good information just in case I want to pack a picnic lunch for our travel day.
