Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls

4.2
#5 of 14 in Sightseeing in Niagara Falls
Bridge Landmark
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. Rainbow Bridge is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Niagara Falls Edition.

  • Beautiful Beautiful scenery. Very overpacked and long waiting times to get on and off of the bridge. Only go here to walk and to view the scenery otherwise drive on peace bridge, Not rainbow.
  • Long lines, but a very personable attendant when we got to the guard booth. Great views. Loved seeing both Canadian and American flags hanging side by side.
  • One of the best views of the falls, and not crowded. Maybe it's just me, but I think it's kinda cool to walk between different countries. There is a $.50 toll when entering in the Canadian side.
  • Easy walk from US to Canada in Niagara. Just have some change with you since the Canadian side will charge you .50 to access the bridge to get back to the US side.
  • Everytime I use this bridge, even with fairly long lines the wait time still isn't very long. Definitely prefer it over the Queenston bridge.
