The following is off the Vancouver Tourism website [note the last line]:
United States Citizens - Citizens or permanent residents of the United States can usually cross the border, without difficulty. However, visitors should carry identification such as a passport, birth or naturalization certificate, as proof of citizenship may be required. A driver's license is NOT accepted as proof of citizenship.
The simplest form of proof of citizenship is a copy of your birth certificate. If you don't have a copy just call the County Office in the county you were born in and you can get a copy pretty quickly.

As Moosh said, bring a second form of ID, plain and simple.

But what if we weren't born in a county? ;)

Thanks for letting me know that Nasai! We had no problem getting into Canada, but when we were returning to the states (to visit you, coincidentally) I was told I needed something other than a drivers license...my passport (thank GOD Keith made me bring it, because I wasn't going to) was in the trunk, and apparantly you can't get out when you're at the booth there... so we were instructed to go to some office and wait for someone but no one came. We went inside and told some officers what was going on and they were all "Eh? Oh...uh...yeah, we'll check those...sure." Like they had no idea what was going on. So basically we didn't even have to go in there and no one would have said a word...really strange.
Anyhoot, time to hit the road again! We're off to Lagoon today for an hour or so (we were there the whole day yesterday but for $6 we can go today and ride their incredible Spider coaster and Samurai Top Scan) then driving to Denver tomorrow.
Hope everyone is doing well!
