One of the reasons to be a tourist in Port Huron is watching the Great Lakes freighter traffic. Big boats crossing under the double span makes for great photography. The river walk south of the bridge is a favorite place for visitors and locals alike. (The views are even better on the Canadian side).

If you would rather visit a cute, quaint, little low-crime town with constant festivals for every season, then Port Huron, MI on the Great Lakes is the way to go! In the winter, see all of the beautiful Christmas lights. -Especially in the downtown area or Vantage Point. Birchwood Mall is always lit-up beautifully. Palmer Park offers great hills to... More

Very cool to see the bridge from Port Huron looking over to Canada. There are several parks along the river area and you can walk around under the bridge area. Very cool to see at night and during the day.

We have lived in the area since 1982 and cross the bridges daily. Peaceful and Calming... Watch the ships for hours, notice the country ownership flags on the freighters as they pass regularly. You might even see two passing each other in opposite directions before or after the bridge. Travel to the Canadian side for "Fries under the Bridge". Great... More

I live in the area, but still visit the bridges often.....Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall. It is always breathtaking and makes me feel blessed to enjoy this view whenever I wish. No, it's not an amusement park or video game......just beautiful scenery that never fails to impress. It's also a hot spot for pictures and freighter fanatics!

I lived in Port Huron in the 1960's when there was only one bridge into Sarnia from Port Huron. It is beautiful and even more beautiful lit up at night.

I haven't seen the golden gate yet. I have seen most of the other landmark bridges tho and I can say blue water is super cool. Great heights in such a Short span with monstrous cargo ships passing underneath! Plus a spectacular view of Lake Huron!

Customs on the US side were friendly and efficient. Road surface excellent - maintenance much better than Ambassador Bridge in Detroit.

Blue Water Bridge is a necessity for us to come across the boarder between Canada & The U.S. The view is absolutely spectacular anytime of year & regardless of the weather. The view of Lake Huron & the St. Clair River make it a joy to cross even if there is a bit of a wait. When we don't want... More
