"Flashing a driver's license when returning from a trip to Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, and most of the Caribbean isn't going to cut it in the near future. New homeland security laws proposed to take effect in the next 12-24 months mean anyone contemplating travel outside U.S. borders will need a passport or a similar document to re enter. Our advice: Download application info at http://travel.state.gov/passport , then hustle to one of more than 7,000 passport application acceptance sites. A new passport costs $97.00. Not cheap, but it beats a ruined vacation."
You also need a passport to get into Canada, at least Montreal. My passport was renewed in 03 for that reason.
