We drove to Ft. Erie from Niagara Falls for our crossing back into the USA. I had heard horror stories about crossing, but this was easy. Wait time was minimal. We did not go in the Duty Free Store.

The Fort Erie Bridge is best crossing point in the Niagara area. Wait time has been cut down by all the new booths. The Duty Free Store is large and has something for everyone.

Some crossings are quick and problem free. Others are not. Living in a border town we cross often. Webcams can tell you before you leave whether delays exist and wait times.

So now trucks and cars share a lane going into USA this causes delays. Use Rainbow Bridge no trucks allowed.

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.

It would not be correct to call the Peace Bridge a tourist attraction. It is a long and large bridge connecting the US and Canada and it can get very busy and slow to cross at peak times on the weekends and in the summer....More

With only three lanes and customs and immigration in either direction, crossings can get very slow during peak travel periods around the normal rush hours, weekends and holidays. However, if you have a Nexus card, you have a speedier option by bearing all the way...More
