If you are afraid of heights, it's best not to try it. This is a very high bridge. It's always fun when a semi truck is passing by and... More

I had some work in the area so I was bad and forth across the bridge many times. It's a cool bridge and you can also walk it which I did not get to do. Great views..

It is a fun bridge to go over. There is only a fee when you go over to the island. You are able to see up and down the river.

We've taken this bridge going to and from Canada multiple times. The views from it in the day time are fantastic. We've crossed at night as well and seeing the bridge lit up is also a sight to see.

We took the bridge over to Canada for a afternoon excursion. On the return trip we decided to walk the shorter span from Wellesley island to the mainland. It offered a spectacular view but definitely not for the weak of heart.

Going under or over this bridge is awesome. if you look up while going under it looks amazing and is so far up. same as driving over the bridge. We love to get pictures of the bridge each time we pass under it.

Crossing the bridge literally gives the exact knowledge of how interconnected we are. Two countries sharing a river and a common geography. Beautiful views.
