I have run through it twice (the Free Press Marathon) very interesting, but hot and humid!

You have one chance a year to see and experience this tunnel up close--by running in the Free Press Marathon or International Half-marathon. It's a novel running experience... read more

Just knowing you are under water makes this pretty cool to drive through. It is well lit so I didn't have any issues with my claustrophobia.

Easy way to cross the boarder. Have your documents ready for inspection when you get above ground. Be polite and you should sail right through.

You have one chance a year to see and experience this tunnel up close--by running in the Free Press Marathon or International Half-marathon. It's a novel running experience, running down the spiral ramp in Windsor and re-emerging in Detroit.The negatives are that it is stifling hot and very humid in the tunnel.

Pretty much what the title says. It's easy to get past and beautiful. Glossy tiles on the walls and roof, lighting is great and even gives you a nice feeling.

Perfectly located for getting into the heart of downtown Detroit. Efficient and luckily kind staff. The only issue is the fee to cross is not cheap $5 US

Why is this on here? The tunnel just gets you from Point A to B. Nothing special what so ever. And border crossing sucks, no one likes it.

I have always felt safe traveling from Detroit to Canada via the tunnel. Even though I usually don't like closed-in places, you usually move quickly through the tunnel and it's well-lit, so you really don't notice being enclosed too much.

Just pay $5 and cross to Canada and back. Nothing to see like the bridge but quicker. if you want the duty free shop cross on bridge. Take passport and be prepared to answer a lot of questions by border agent.
