Lovely bridge nice view and costs $3.75 Canadian to cross. When you cross stop in and check out the 1000 Islands Tower. Get a 360 view at over 400 metres on three observation decks. Gift shop on site too!

The bridge is well over 50 years old, the plan was to charge a crossing fee until it was paid for, about 500 million ago. A nice view of the area, along with the only way to Wellesly Island from the US

This is a toll bridge that we took to and from Canada three times. One must go through customs to go across, something that could take anywhere from a few minutes to hours. (Luckily, our longest wait was just over half an hour.) The bridge...More

We went over the bridge to get to Uncle Sam's and what an amazing ride. You can see the thousand island and it was exciting to try and see everything from above. Wonderful experience.

This bridge is beautiful to look at from several angles: the american side, the canadian side, a boat on the river and the sky tower. It is also a great place to view the Thousand Islands by walking up on the bridge (easier than trying...More

When you cross the TI Bridge, and go to Wellesley Island, you do not need your passport or an enhanced driver's license. If you are planning on going into Canada, then you need them!!!
