After paying a toll I think it was $2.75 you can cross this beautiful bridge. If you don't have your passport you can get off I-81, and turn around at the last 2 exits before going to Canada. Enjoy the view, however like other reviewer...More

This bridge is pretty cool; high up off the river, and offering wonderful views up and down the river. Some people are afraid to look down, over the railing and into the distance. But I'd recommend overcoming that, as the scenery is superb! BTW, remember...More

My family and I have camped at Welsley Island State Park since I was 10 months old. This bridge brings back so many memories. It costs money each trip so if you're staying a while, I suggest buying the package. It definitely saves money. Very...More

Yes, you can park in the parking lot and walk across the bridge... pick a nice day and bring your camera!! :)
So, if I cross it from NY, do I wind up in Canada? Aren't passports required?

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!!!
