Traveling to NOTL from Buffalo this weekend, where to cross?

We'll be traveling to Niagara on the Lake this weekend, returning on Monday, Victoria Day. Assuming it will be quite busy due to the holiday. Is there a particular place that we should cross the border? No plans to visit Niagara Falls this trip (have done so many times). Thanks.

I have always found the Peace Bridge to be the best, they always seem to have many booths open and move fairly quickly. Queeston-Lewiston would be the most convenient, but tends to be the busiest, although they have just opened an addition 2 inspection booths on the Canadian side, which will help. Rainbow Bridge will likely be busy with tourist traffic.

When you get close to Buffalo, call the bridge traffic hotline, 1-800-715-6722, (or watch for the digital signs on the highway) to get current conditions and then make your decision from that.
