Great view as you pass from the US to Canada. Enjoy the view because at times you can spend a good amount of time here trying to enter or exit

They don't call it Rainbow Bridge for nothing... When the sun is out it's quite easy to get good rainbow photos together with the bridge. Nothing special about the bridge itself - it can be crossed either by foot or by car, and they charge...More

Hopefully lots better than we US citizens had crossing into Canada. We drove into Canada one day, with an hour wait. We walked to the US attractions and had another Hour wait walking back in to Canada.

I booked one from Viator. They picked us up in Canada, we went to US to start tour and continued/ended up back in Canada.
