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.

This is a great place to visit for the first time, and the high price is totally justified. You can save the $12 they charge for the skypod. It's not worth it. The views are just the same. Be prepared for long queues depending on the day and time. Best time to visit is before sundown - this way you will be able to get the city view in light, watch the sunset, and get the awesome night view. There is a restaurant at the observation deck - not sure how expensive it is though. The elevator ride is awesome. Try to be near the door for best views - ear popping is complimentary!

I will recommend people to visit this tower on both day and night so that you can enjoy the city view. The edge walk I feel pretty expensive, In case your interested you can try. The glass floor not so impressive in night, much effective during in day. Overall it is mixed opinion from my side.

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.

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!
