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 booked for the 360 restaurant, excellent quality meal, views were incredible. service was top notch. it was also quite awesome to skip the sue at the bottom of the tower saving 3.5hrs according to staff on the day! pricy but when you consider the entry fee without the meal, it was good value!

4 Star Rating An iconic must-do experience in Toronto. Views are of course stunning from the top. Price of entrance is reasonable. I do wish the grounds were a little more modern and friendly. Wish there was more ground level shopping (not requiring an entrance fee to the tower first).

4 Star Rating Neat experience. The price was quite high, though. I would definitely recommend visiting the tower during the evening, as you'll get to see the skyline during the day, at dusk, and in the night. The CN Tower provides an incredible way to experience Toronto, and I positively suggest visiting this amazing landmark!

4 Star Rating I did the stair climb here and it was fun! I felt accomplished! The glass floor is worth visiting even if you're scared of heights! I could normally go on roller coasters and rides but for some reason sitting at the 360 restaurant as it revolves super fast and having to eat made me feel sick. So we had to leave and luckily the staff allowed us to leave as we didn't get our food yet and I already felt sick.

5 Star Rating Even though I'm afraid of heights, I have visited the CN Tower three times already. The views of the city are absolutely stunning and worth the price and wait time. Don't miss out on visiting what might be Canada's most iconic building.
