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. Of course, proper documentation is also required for the crossing.

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 to the right crossing into Canada and all the way to the left crossing into... More

The Peace Bridge is the only bridge that connects Fort Erie with Buffalo. It is often congested. It is quite solid though, made of riveted steel and reinforced concrete deck slabs. When I went for a walk on the Bird Island Pier in Buffalo, a walkway on the Niagara River, we had to pass under this bridge. It was quite... More

We are Long Islanders who visit Buffalo often see my wife's college friends. As such I have seen a great number of Buffalo's better known and "off the beaten path" tourist sights. I have driven over and under the Peace Bridge. The traffic on the bridge seems to depend on the Canadian and US Customs and how fast/slow they handle... More

Afternoon is the perfect time to visit this place. Watch out for dog poops though. 7 min drive from Old Fort Erie is a beautiful St. Paul Anglican Episcopal church.

This is the bridge we crossed to go into Canada. The immigration staff was very kind and professional. The views from the bridge were lovely.

Not really sure why the Peace Bridge is listed as an attraction, but it is an important feature of your cross border travel plans. Yes, there are lineups both ways on Saturdays and Sundays, but you can't show up at the start or end of a long weekend and expect to breeze through. They have excellent status updates and webcams...

The bridge was a fantastic crossing. Traffic was manageable and the border crossing on either sides were quick and efficient. Beautiful view from the bridge as well

Into Canada or USA it depends on time of day. Google bridge traffic for up to date crossing times. Frequent users buy the Nexus pass and breeze thru.
