The most widely recognized landmark in Toronto, the CN Tower soars high above the surrounding buildings of Toronto's skyline. A marvel of modern engineering and architecture, it is considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world.
So just how tall is the CN Tower? At 1818 feet the CN Tower was the tallest freestanding structure in the world when it was first completed back in 1975 until 2007 when the Burj Khalifa Skyscraper in Dubai surpassed it.
From the 1136 foot LookOut you will enjoy a 360° unobstructed view of the city of Toronto and the beautiful lakeshore area below. One level down at 1122 feet you may feel your knees go wobbly if you brave a walk on the 256 square foot Glass Floor. At this level you will also experience the Outdoor Observation Area. For an additional charge you can take another elevator up to the 1465 foot level SkyPod, an even higher viewpoint of the city. There is also a theatre currently featuring a 15 minute film called The Red Rocket which takes you on an immersive journey showcasing the electric streetcars that have provided transportation in the city since 1890. For some fine dining with a spectacular 360° view you may want to try the revolving restaurant located above the LookOut at 1151 feet.
If you are really adventurous you may want to try the new EdgeWalk, a thrilling attraction that must be booked ahead. See EdgeWalk at the CN Tower for more details.
At nighttime you can enjoy the spectacular lighting that accentuates the tower from bottom to top. The energy efficient LED lighting is normally red and white to celebrate Canada, but changes on some nights to commemorate or celebrate special occassions, holidays or events. There is also a brief light show at the top of the tower for a few minutes at the top of each hour. Of course, the lighting can be enjoyed from any vantage point in the city that you can see the tower from.

Very cool experience! I'd say if I was torn and limited time and what to do - this would be my top pick. Spending extra cash on the meal ticket was definitely worth it. The experience of eating a pretty good meal while watching a 360 degree view of the sky line was one of a kind! The food was higher end, so smaller portions - and unique. All the other views available don't beat the dinner, but still worth a look! Wow! Edit: Don't go here if you're in a hurry. Unestimated wait times getting to the different floors. Read the one star reviews to get an idea on prices and wait times if that's helpful information for you.

The line going up to the top of the CN Tower was actually not much of a wait on the day we went. It was a lovely as well. Once we reached the top, we were in awe of the picturesque view and beauty of Toronto. So much to look at and so much we don't actually realize from the ground level. Definitely another perspective of Toronto that we were all happy to have experienced. Parking was easy as well, since we were lucky to have found parking not too far on an adjacent street, but I could imagine how parking could be an issue for some. For those with fear of heights , obviously please abstain.

A place you have to visit if you go to Toronto beautiful views of the entire city. They have a glass floor in the tower which you can walk on. There is a restaurant which rotates so you can get a 360 degree view of the city while you eat. You can visit a higher points in the tower you just have to make a reservation when you're there so you may have to wait a little bit but there are great views on the main level. I went during the week so there wasn't a lot of lines

This place is breathtaking... very romantic location at the top of the Toronto. One can really use this place for some special occasions. Very peaceful and pleasant. Staff has been working there for years. They are very gentle, as well as respectful. Restaurant is 360° keeps rotating and it pleases with the amazing views. Its little expensive but totally worth it.

Good to go at least once... I personally feel for the price that you pay, the value isn't quite there. But still a good experience nonetheless. The ever popular glass-floor is my favourite part. During the summer you can go outside to the observatory deck which is pretty cool. Not much more to do there outside of the restaurant (admittedly I haven't eaten there) and the Edge Walk (again, also haven't done that) but still a good attraction to visit at least once in your lifetime or to take friends/family from out of town to.
