“Multicolored Lighting over the Niagara River”
Review of Peace Bridge

Peace Bridge
Ranked #5 of 21 things to do in Fort Erie
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is one of the oldest and most unique bridges in North America! IT connect Fort Erie Ontario with Buffalo New York. It's really cool at night as the bridge lights up with multi-color animated LED lighting that really complements the Niagara River.

As of a few years ago, there is now only one toll booth - on the Canadian side. You pay for both directions in Canada only, the USA tolls were removed.

The longest waits to cross are: 1. Sunday nights/Monday mornings and Wednesday nights/Thursday mornings because of heavy truck traffic crossing into and back from the USA; 2. Immediately after a Buffalo Sabers hockey game 3. Friday/Sunday afternoons/evenings especially during the summer. Canada Customs/Immigration have twitter feeds and an app to monitor bridge traffic.

Crossing the Peace Bridge can be a time consuming venture. Of course it depends on the day of the week, the time of day, and which way you're crossing. We usually find it a pleasant crossing, seeing the lake and the source of the Niagara. We like seeing the flags at the point over the US/Canada border. At night the bridge is lit, which adds to it's beauty.

I have driven over, walked over, walked under (the break wall goes under), and boated under the Peace Bridge and have found that even though it is old, it still is beautiful.

We use the Peace Bridge to cross from Niagara Falls to Buffalo. We have gone across three times and had the best experience the last time. It seems like at times we waited on the bridge for an hour, but this was during a Saturday around lunchtime. The last time it was a Tuesday around 10 and we sailed across no problem. The view of Lake Erie from the bridge is really nice at least while you are waiting.

The peace bridge offers great views of Lake Erie the Niagara River and downtown Buffalo. It has a Nexus lane but even with a wait the amazing views will keep you occupied.

I had the good fortune of going by the Peace Bridge late yesterday, returning from a meeting near Niagara Falls. I wish I'd had my camera with me, because it is GORGEOUS at night. The entire expanse is lit up with different color lights, making it an extraordinary photo opportunity. Bring along a digital camera with a rapid-exposure lens. It is worth the effort!
