If you're heading to the Olympic winter games, hopefully you already know you'll need different documents if you're going into Canada and coming back into the U.S. 

The last thing you want is a bumpy ride. You want everything to go smoothly.

When it comes to getting into Canada or getting into the United States, there are different requirements depending on which way you're going.

U.S. citizens can enter Canada with a birth certificate and picture I.D. That's going *into* Canada.

Coming back into the U.S., you need a passport, a passport card, an enhanced driver's license or a trusted traveler card. These rules have been in place since last June.

And with more than the usual February crowds expected at the border because of the games, this is a very good time to be on your game.  Whichever way you go, you need to know what you need to have to get in.
