Border crossing from minnesota to canada?

edited August 2010 in - USA
Is there a place to cross the border from Minnesota to Canada? I'm trying to get from Minneapolis to Ontario (Toronto).

    Hi MikeyM,

    That's a long drive! There's two main ways to take it. You can go under, or over the Great Lakes. If you go under (about a 17 hour drive) you'll probably want to cross at the Port Huron-Sarnia crossing from Michigan into Ontario. If you go over, though, which is a bit longer at nearly 19 hours, you'll cross at the Sault Ste. Marie border post, which also goes from Michigan into Ontario.

    There isn't really a practical route that crosses directly from Minnesota to Canada. The nearest would be the Grand Portage-Pigeon River border post, but that route takes you up through Thunder Bay and is nearly a 24-hour haul.
