Definitely a must do thing if you are in the area. The bridge is very long and very windy! The only downside is the price of the toll on returning (almost $50!!!)

$46 toll for a car. Well maintained and safe. In the winter, you see the icebergs in the strait. Beautiful view and quick 14 km bridge ride to PEI.

Living in PEI or being close to someone in PEI makes paying the bridge toll expensive. I lived there for years and found it very difficult to pay every time I wanted to visit family in NB. All that said, the bridge is fantastic and...More

I'm very afraid of heights. Is this bridge for me? I would be sitting lower in a car rather than a van. Bob
