We crossed the bridge this weekend to enter Canada to go to Niagara Falls - no waiting. The agent was so nice and friendly AND she stamped our passports for us when we asked. I read up on border crossings and most people said that the agents would not want to them the passports. We heard that it lights up... More

We used this bridge when returning from Canada one time. I would rather swim the Niagara river than go through this experience again. We got to the check point and were tired after driving for 12 hours to get to a hotel that did't accept dogs and had to go back to the US to find a pet friendly hotel.... More

This is one of the oldest and most unique bridges in North America! IT connect Fort Erie Ontario with Buffalo New York. It's really cool at night as the bridge lights up with multi-color animated LED lighting that really complements the Niagara River. As of a few years ago, there is now only one toll booth - on the Canadian... More

Crossing the Peace Bridge can be a time consuming venture. Of course it depends on the day of the week, the time of day, and which way you're crossing. We usually find it a pleasant crossing, seeing the lake and the source of the Niagara. We like seeing the flags at the point over the US/Canada border. At night the... More

We use the Peace Bridge to cross from Niagara Falls to Buffalo. We have gone across three times and had the best experience the last time. It seems like at times we waited on the bridge for an hour, but this was during a Saturday around lunchtime. The last time it was a Tuesday around 10 and we sailed across... More

The peace bridge offers great views of Lake Erie the Niagara River and downtown Buffalo. It has a Nexus lane but even with a wait the amazing views will keep you occupied.

I had the good fortune of going by the Peace Bridge late yesterday, returning from a meeting near Niagara Falls. I wish I'd had my camera with me, because it is GORGEOUS at night. The entire expanse is lit up with different color lights, making it an extraordinary photo opportunity. Bring along a digital camera with a rapid-exposure lens. It... More

Since I live in Fort Erie, I travel across this bridge a lot -- usually twice a week. There are three bridges crossing the border here. Niagara falls is the most famous, of course because it has ....well ..... Niagara Falls!!! Its more expensive and usually the wait time is longer. Lewiston is to the north of Niagara Falls and...

what a comical old queen this bridge is, appropriately, as we believe her highness had a hand in opening it... change plans have been on the drawing board for centuries, it seems, and three lanes (that's for two directions) just really aren't enough, but it's a worthy old span and the entry process is being improved regularly, while we wait...

This is the worst border crossing anywhere in the world in terms of waits. Spent an hour in the winter snow waiting to cross.
