Crossing the CA/US border

The fam and I are heading to myrtle beach in a couple of weeks. Just wanted to find out if any one has any experience crossing the boarder the day before the long weekend in Canada. We are leaving June 30 and will be crossing at rainbow or peace. Just trying to get an idea of wait times. Thanks in advance

Depending on the time of day you could have a long wait. I have been in line up of up to an hour.

It is also the long weekend in the US. Bring a book it might be a long wait.

Border Crossing

Maybe you can find a web cam or a web site that gives you the info?

Border Wait Times might help.

Early morning like 3 am departure means you may miss all the traffic at the border as well as many small communities commutes in the morning.
we are heading to Maine on that morning and will be leaving at about 6 am putting us into southern maine in time to miss morning commutes in most cities with traffic.

We long ago gave up on that crossing. We take Gananoque any time we can. Never any wait times and a pleasant experience all round. I'd choose the 401 traffic any day! Have a great trip.

The later in the day, the better you are. Those look like good times.
