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 4.5 out of 5

5 Star Rating Went there for a dinner with a friend. Amazing time spend there as the dark of the night surround the city and the restaurant allow you to have a sightseeing tour has you eat. Great meal, wine and desert. Staff very professional, good advice, they knows what they are selling and with a very accurate sense of service. Definitely worth the price paid

4 Star Rating Awesome view of Toronto. The CN Tower gives tourists great 360 degree views of Toronto. You can see farther away on a sunny day but it is least crowded on a rainy day. You need to pay additional money to go up to the Skypod because it is not included in the ticket.

5 Star Rating Absolutely worth it! I wasn't going to come but I have friends living locally who hadn't done it for a while and said they'd be up for it, so we fit it in to a busy day and I'm glad we did. The views can't be beat, and the glass floor is scary as hell. So cool!

5 Star Rating Admissions price is high, I think it was $50+ and then another $15+ to go all the way to the top. It is worth it for a first time visit. If you are afraid of heights, i would still say to go check it out. Highly recommend going all the way to the top to get the full experience. You can also pre-book a outside walk around the tower top where they strap you in and you are on the edge walking around. Gift shop is nice and don't forget to hit up the free movies at the bottom before you go. It gives you history on the tower and also Toronto. Location is right next to where the Blue Jays play baseball and the Ripley Aquarium.

5 Star Rating Your trip to T.O. must include the iconic trip to the top of CN Tower! Best view anytime of the day. Watching the sun set is a spectacular way to start the evening! The night views of the city below are also inspiring. Don't forget to look downwards when you're standing on the glass floor. ☺️ While you're there, pay a visit to the Ripley's Aquarium too! (hard to miss the entrance!) Great place to explore the wonders of the ocean.
