Of any border crossing into the States, this one is my favourite. The duty-free on the Canadian side is very big, with lots of snack choices, clean bathrooms and friendly workers.

I ve crossed this bridge several times . It's mostly quick but can be crowded at times but it's worth it to go to the Canadian side for fun .

There is a lovely walk along the Niagra River and great views of Peace Bridge. The water and whirlpools beneath the bridge are amazing to watch. Water, water everywhere and its fascinating.

My advice for travelers coming from New York State and wanting to cross the border into Ontario quickly is to take the Peace Bridge rather than go on to Lewiston. You have to get off the New York State throughway as soon as possible because...More
