Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls

(4.2/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you are looking for a way to get from clifton hill area to downtown Niagara Falls USA and are unable to levitate, or jump really large expanses, this is your bridge.  more »
  • Rainbow Bridge is just that during sunlight hours and water mist,, or rain looking towards the Houseshoe falls from the bridge.  more »
  • Nice bridge but had over an hour wait to get back into Canada. It was a busy holiday weekend so I am sure that contributed to the backup.  more »

  • Crossing over the border both ways can be quite a wait,it may take between 1-2 hour wait both ways.Using Queenstown and Lewiston crossings will save time, a slightly longer drive,but worth it.
  • The wait times for vehicles at this US-Canada border crossing location is on average with the other area locations. This location has a pedestrian bridge as well. Walking across and seeing the view of the US and Canadian falls is great.
  • Such a lovely view. Walked to Canada and met some interesting people on the bridge. Cos-play participants are always interesting!
  • Very easy to walk through, only took us about 10 minutes to walk over the bridge and get through customs. The cars were backed up at a stand still.
  • Beautiful to see if ur walking, nearby shops, great place to start
