One of the great things about living in Buffalo and Western New York is our proximity to Canada and one of the largest cities in North America, Toronto, Ontario.

From tourist attractions to restaurants, there is so much to do and see in southern Ontario.

Just like there is so much to do in Ontario, there is also so much to bring back with you from Ontario when you cross the international border back into the United States of America.

So when you cross back into New York and stop at the border inspection station, here are some of our favorite things to declare that we're bringing back to the Empire State with us.

Coca Cola With Real Sugar

I love Coca-Cola, it's one of my favorite drinks to drink. But I had only ever had American Coca-Cola until night in Toronto and I had some Canadian Coca-Cola that was made with real sugar, and not high fructose corn syrup. Now it's all I can drink - every time I border hop I make sure I grab a case or two.

Leftovers From Swiss Chalet

Since the last Swiss Chalet left the 716 in 2010, I can all but guarantee you that finding one of these great restaurants in Ontario is a Western New Yorker pastime. I always make sure I order a little extra so I have some leftovers to bring back with me.

7 Exciting Things To See And Do When Canada Opens

Going over the border has so many benefits for many Americans, people come from all over the world to Canada all the time. Buffalo and Niagra Falls residents are spoiled because we have the advantage of being so very close, for most people here the border is less than 20 minutes away. The thing that I have noticed over the years is, the main strip in Niagra Falls Ontario gets bigger all the time with more things to see and do. Did you know, that the first hotel was built on Ferry Rd. in the tourist area back in 1833? it's amazing to see all of the additions, even since the 90s.
