Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!

As a general matter of practice, the casinos near the border will give you the best rates. Seriously. Just go into the casino to exchange your currency.

That's a great tip for road trips and I will keep that in mind. Unfortunately this time I will be flying to Indianapolis, IN. Think I will still get a good deal taking Canadian cash into a casino there?
Thank-you for your help.
That is not near a border, so the answer is "no." And I just telephoned the ones over there to double-check and they do not exchange currency.

That really leaves you with getting quotes from local banks. They have different fees so you'll have to price them out in your community. And don't wait until the last minute because sometimes they have to order cash. Airports are the worst place.
