Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Ontario  /  Niagara Falls  /  Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls

4.2
Cross between the United States and Canada at Rainbow Bridge. The bridge, linking the two countries over the Niagara River gorge, offers spectacular views of the falls from a slightly higher perspective. If you view the bridge from the falls, it will really live up to its name--rainbows form in the mist created by the pounding water. Don't forget your passport if you plan to cross from one country to the other.

  • Still amazing. 4th time there, but never boring. We stayed c!ose to the Queensburg Bridge. Very smooth crossing the border. Much less traffic than Rainbow Bridge. There was a lot of road...  more »
  • It is a bridge on Niagra Falls that says "Nature has no borders." Amazing view when you are on the Fall cruising from Canada or USa side.  more »

  • I loved the option to park on the American side and walk over. The view of the falls from the bridge were incredible. At the middle point there was a plaque notating the dual nation location. It was a bit breezy on the day we were there, but comfortable. It took about 30 minutes to get into Canada as there was only one person working. From what we’ve read & heard that is pretty normal. Going back over bridge to the American side you’ll need a $1 in either Canadian or American quarters. Getting back into the American side was really quick & they were very nice. If you enjoy walking this is a must experience.
  • One of the best cross boarder experiences. Wanted to avoid rush hour and construction. This was an alternative to Peace Bridge coming back to Canada from Erie PA. GREAT DIRECTIONS FROM GALLERIA Mall (side trip). Waited only a few minutes for the car in front of us at customs. Short, thorough and direct questions and we were on our way. A huge plus after two days of shopping!!
