Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Probably best place to see Niagara Falls Firework at 10 p,m, together with illumination of Falls. No one car on bridge is moving during this fantastic 5 minutes of absolute delight!

This is the primary bridge for accessing Niagara Falls, conjoining the matching cities in US and Canada. Though primarily functional, it has a beauty of its own. Located north, or downriver of the falls, it provides some nice photos.
From a functional standpoint it carries both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Canadian entry by car was prompt and pleasant; our reentry to the States same.
Try walking along the chasm edge where the bridge hits Canadian soil for some great views and hidden gems.

Crossing is potentially easy:
Walk from the US side left from the cars

Cross the bridge (nice pictures from a
all of the Falls)

Immigrate to Canada (much much easier than to the US)

Enjoy Canada :-)

Back you can either check Duty Free (if you purchase something, they will walk with you to the bridge)
Or just walk over the bridge back

Be aware: you need 4x 25cent in Coins for the bridge back

And US customs will check you as you know -

Walked across to USA, the bridge itself provides great opportunity for photos. You need to time your visit though and make sure you have your passport. Canada customs had one guy on so you had to stand outside in the hot sun while you waited your turn to go in and show your passport and answer the usual line of questions so they can tax you on anything you might have bought. Canada side has a toll of 1$, bring four quarters. Yeah really sad we tax you to walk across the border.

This is one of the locations that we never went to but wished we would have made time for. We didn't go across the bridge until the day we were leaving to get back into the US and it was rainy and a bit foggy out, so the view wasn't great at that time. I deducted a star because I didn't get the full experience. Also, I'm not very familiar with crossing the border but the border patrol officer was a bit of a jerk. He kept asking me if my (new) car had been to Arizona recently. Maybe that's typical but I didn't have that experience coming in to Canada.
