It connects Canada and the United States and is within sight of both the American Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls The Rainbow Bridge was built by the Province of Ontario and the State of New York and is administered by the Niagara Falls Bridge Commission.
If you walk across the bridge you’ll get spectacular view of these falls.
