I enjoy going across to the United States from Sarnia to port Huron. I think the border guards are strict yet friendly. I've gone to the United States at different locations and find this less expensive and good spot

My cousin saw it for the first time as it was her first time to port huron ever. We were in the car and this was her first time seeing the bridge and seeing Canada in person. It is cool cool to see from the sidewalk that runs by the water to see the bridge and get a good picture... More

Not sure what the hype is about this bridge . It's nice and the very few blue lights are pretty but there are a LOT nicer bridges . It is very nice to be able to walk along the river , but the previous reviews really built this up .

We crossed around 17:15 and there was light traffic. Be prepared for waits early in the afternoon, going to the US, and later in the afternoon going into Canada.

The boardwalk along the water, heading north, is very cozy. The St. Clair River, when the sun hits it, is a stunning blue. Hence, Blue Water Bridge. The nightly blue lights are a favorite as well.

Excellent view of lower Lake Michigan and the St. Clair River. Traffic can be heavy, but usually moves well. You NEED a special driver's license or passport for ALL members including children to get back into the USA. Our Canadian brethren are much nicer in letting us visit. At this time the exchange rate heavily favors the US Dollar, encouraging... More

The structure is excellent. Trade between the US and Canada is fast and efficient. It also brings business to the area.

Pretty views from the bridge and honestly the river walk below was more entertaining as there were some historical posts and pieces - such as a huge anchor dredged from the channel. Nice area to walk and you can stop off at the Thomas Edison depot if you'd like to pay a small fee as part of your walk.

The bridge is used for crossing the border between Canada and US. The view from it to Lake Huron are amazing. The bridge itself are over St Claire River, and is very close to the lake.
