I hate taking the bridge. First off it's more expensive than the tunnel and it's also in really bad shape. I guess there is none of that billionaire money left over to fix things that don't work... anyway, the staff and CBP there are very...More

In between dodging trucks and there was plenty of them going both ways you got time to look at the view it was great. When they finish the road works they are doing it might be a little less hectic.

1/2 an hour parking is $2.00 dollars. Enough time to go for a short stroll, seat to catch a breeze or aim at the flag and view and take a picture or you could go for a long walk and upgrade on the parking.

Once a year with advanced registration you can bike the bridge. You need passport clearance. Leave the US side early morning, cross the bridge where the Canadian cyclists are waiting. We join together and ride back the US side and do a 40 mile or...More

The best place will be any of the public parking along the Canadian/ Windsor side of the river along Riverside drive. There are plenty parking spaces and most of them are free.
