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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5

4 Star Rating Very cool experience seeing the city and lake from the height of the tower. Walking on the observation deck outside was intriguing, as there were quite high winds at the time, which could push a person around if they weren't prepared for it. The lookout level and restaurant level were closed the day I visited, but they offered a ride up to the top of the second elevator at no extra cost. There was quite a long lineup for this, but it was worth the wait.

5 Star Rating Just go & experience it ... you won't forget it! I've been here about six times and anytime I visit Toronto I always go to the CN Tower. Last time I took my son and it was the best time of our lives. There is a see-through floor which is a big attraction. You can walk 360° around the tower and see Toronto at its beauty. At night time they light up this tower and it depends on the occasion they do special lighting also. We are so fortunate to have this amazing tower.

5 Star Rating First off, this was my first ever visit to the CN Tower was such an amazing experience! Spectacular 360 degree view of all of Downtown Toronto, the suburbs, and Lake Ontario. It was great that I went up during the sunset so it made for some great photo ops. The elevator going up is the fastest I've ever been in and you go up so high that your ears will start to pop. The best thing was the glass floor. Terrifying, but exciting view of the Rogers Centre and plaza from up above. Unfortunately, I didnt get to go to the highest observation deck, but I will for sure next time! (Apparently you can see as far as Rochester, NY across the lake from up there)

5 Star Rating An absolute must do when in Toronto the $37 entry price is a little steep but I thought it was worth it. Views are stunning from the Bubble which is on two levels one level is indoor with floor to ceiling windows and the lower floor is open to the elements. Check out the glass floor which is either exhilarating or terrifying depending on your attitude. The restaurant has a good menu and not too expensive for such a touristy location. There is the option for doing the edge walk at $250 one of our party did this and for him it was an unforgettable and unique experience. For a further $12 you can travel to the higher and smaller bubble and take in the views from there but we did not do that.

5 Star Rating Seeing Toronto from up in the sky? Done! Views are incredible. We were there at sunset and we went up to the pod. I would recommend that to everyone. The personnel is friendly and efficient. There were lots of people but everything flowed smoothly and without a long wait. The ticket office is helpful in helping you choose your option. The guys in the lifts take care that everyone is feeling comfortable in the impressive ride up the tower. Well done to all the staff there: they gifted us a memorable evening, to be remembered!
