4.2/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • Well worth a walk over to get great views, even if you choose not to cross into the USA. Great sensation looking down the river towards the falls. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • View from the bridge is gorgeous if you are walking across. Nice short walk and customs on either side is efficient and painless.
  • Thank rainbow bridge for helping us cross Canada. Always a rainbow underneath because of the falls. So beautiful.
  • If you need to cross the border on foot, the ideal place to do it. Great view of Niagara Falls also.
