Do any off you seasoned travelers have an opinion on where the best place to cross the border would be? Looks like Summas doesnt take us too far out of the way and could actually be a less time consuming way.
I cant see any restrictions on any of the bridges we have to use on the transcanada Hwy through Vancouver.
Also curious if anyone uses a GOES/NEXUS pass to ease the border crossing?
If you are coming out of Seattle en route to Alice Lake ( Whistler area) , the direct route is Peace Arch border crossing right on I5 which is BC99 when you cross the border. This crossing has 2 Nexus lanes . We live within 5 minutes of the border and use this crossing weekly. This routing will take you through Vancouver so plan your travel to avoid northbound rush hour into Vancouver. Anytime after 930 in the morning it clears up pretty well.
