At the time this bridge was built in 1929 it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

It's just another bridge. There are lots of bigger, taller, cooler bridges around, so don't get all excited about this one. And it takes you to Canada and the great hassle of customs.

it is always a bottle neck. this time it was worse because the tunnel is closed for a week. They misplace the cones sometimes and the lines are not clear. they need to repaint. 5. dollars now to cross. maybe that will change too.

In between dodging trucks and there was plenty of them going both ways you got time to look at the view it was great. When they finish the road works they are doing it might be a little less hectic.

Traveling into Canada for a long weekend family visit (coming from different directions) we all crossed the Ambassador Bridge. Our first approach to it was in the dark of the night (around 9:00 pm) and the lights from the bridge were striking as we approached....More

Glad we took the time to cross into the USA from this location. The view from the bridge was fabulous and enjoyable. We didn't realize the Yankees were playing in town against the Tigers that night so little bit of wait at the border with...More

The best place will be any of the public parking along the Canadian/ Windsor side of the river along Riverside drive. There are plenty parking spaces and most of them are free.
