Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Ontario  /  Niagara Falls  /  Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls

4.2
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.

  • It’s a Bridge, what is there more to say but it’s a very nice bridge! I can’t think of anything more.  more »
  • This was a nice walk from Canada into the US and back. I still don't know why you HAVE to have a passport but they don't stamp it. Yeah, I wanted the stamp to show I've been somewhere. But nope, no st...  more »
  • Views of the falls and, above all, of course, an easy way to the border between the US and Canada. The trail is located on the right side to see the waterfalls. Of Canada to the USA does it cost for hikers 50 cent toll (payable in quarters, not with credit card oid) the other way is free. Please note that your papers are in order for both countries. You have been going through immigrations on the other side.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Niagara Falls

The city bordering Canada's most famous attraction offers a wide range of accommodations, with competition keeping prices surprisingly low. You'll pay a premium for views of the falls, with most of the prime real estate right by the star attraction controlled by major international hotel chains. Most sit along Niagara Parkway, which fronts the river. If you're looking for something nearby but still affordable, check the options along Victoria Avenue--you won't have a view of the falls, but you'll be just minutes from the spectacular attraction.
