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.

The views are really spectacular from the top. If you go for dinner at the 360 restaurant you get great food and the views at the same time. And the ride up is free! After dinner you can spend as much time as you want in the tourist area as well!

It was a cool experience. Did not know that the glass floor would freak me out so much, but it was still awesome! It was a bit pricey. It was a quick thing because we went at night on a Saturday. The staff answered any questions we had. They also told us the changes made for our experience because of the wind. It was overall a cool thing to do in Toronto.

Off peak days/times are great. I was the only person in line. Security is strict, and told me I tested positive for explosives and grilled me a little. (Faulty reading after re-test) - maybe they were just bored? Admission is a little high, but it's worth going on a clear day.

The CN Tower in Toronto is a must stop when visiting this excellent city. The elevator ride up and down features a see-through floor which is great to watch as you ride. Once at the top, the views of Toronto are hard to beat! I highly recommend having a bite at the 360 restaurant as well. Happy Travels! Timothy OLA Travel & Leisure "Traveling The World, Together"
