Fast Facts

Driving Directions

Most approaches to Niagara Falls are east-west oriented with the exception of the Niagara Parkway, a scenic route that follows the Canadian side of the Niagara River from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie.

One of the main routes to Niagara is via the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) through to Hwy 420. The QEW originates in Toronto and skirts around the west side of Lake Ontario through to Niagara Falls, where it interchanges with Hwy 420 and other major streets. The QEW continues south and terminates at the Peace Bridge between Fort Erie, Ontario and Buffalo, New York.

Approaching Niagara from the east, traffic from the US side crosses to Canada via four toll bridges:

Info Niagara recommends that travelers use the Peace Bridge to cross into Canada.With the opening of Casino Niagara directly opposite the Rainbow Bridge, the extra traffic generated by gamblers will likely lead to longer delays on the bridge.
