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. 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 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 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Iconic tourist attraction in Toronto is a must-visit if you are in the area. Came on a weekday so there was no line but still quite a few people in the actual tower by the windows. The elevator moves very quickly but sadly not super visible. The actual tower, wow the views are great. You can see incredibly far, we came during a sunset so it was extra spectacular. The food in the tower is very pricey as expected and has simple items like poutine or burgers, there is also a 360 restaurant but I did not attend it this time around. You can stay as long as you like until closing. The lower lobby section also has a restaurant, a large gift shop, and various displays showing the materials, building process, and other bits of history of the CN tower. Once again, its a must-visit!

5 Star Rating This iconic place is a must visit here. I found very convenient the possibility of having dinner at their restaurant and paying for that instead of buying a ticket to just go up. But if you get a regular ticket you can also buy food and drinks at the observation floor. There is also the option of bringing your own food, which is great, because once up there you can stay as long as you want and there is plenty of room to sit and enjoy. Just notice that the exterior observation area is still under maintenance so you can't access there. Great experience! Note: if you want to enjoy the view from the tower without being there, go to their website and check the live cameras view, just amazing!

5 Star Rating This was our best part of visiting Toronto! The views are amazing and being a clear but cloudy day didn’t take away from seeing far. Parking was a bit tricky but it always is in any metropolis. Destination also has a train museum, Ripley’s aquarium and the Jays stadium so there’s plenty to do once you’ve parked. Small bar with some light food fair makes it very comfortable to enjoy your visit.

5 Star Rating Experiences are always enhanced when shared with those you truly enjoy. Observing the CN Tower from a distance is a daytime spectacle in its simplicity, but when night falls, it transforms into something truly amazing. The vibrant colors and lights make it a captivating sight. Although I haven't had the chance to explore the inside or ascend to the top, the exterior alone evokes a sense of being in a city where the iconic CN Tower dominates the skyline. A must-visit in Toronto, the views are truly spectacular, especially when gazing up from below. Consider splurging on the top viewing platform – unless, of course, heights aren't your thing!

2 Star Rating First off it’s expensive $45 per adult, $32 dollars for youth and senior. I believe young children were $18. They do offer a military discount on 15% so if you have that take discount use it. I was at the CN Tower about thirty years ago. They have not changed much at all. They offer green screen “complimentary prior to getting in the elevator to go up but when you come down you find out that complimentary isn’t at all what they said. When you leave to collect “complementary” photo they charge you $45 dollars to put it in a cheap paper holder. So I was mad because they lied and tried to profit from it and seemed very fraudulent. The CN tower was partially blocked off for repairs but ironically the kitchen was open. The view was great and covered a larger chunk of the city but you see the same from an airplane. The glass floor was busy and definitely something to help you over your fears or make it way worse. We paid the extra $10 per person to go up to the pod above the observation deck and went to a smaller walkway around showing the exact same view. It Not worth the extra expense. If this is a bucket list thing go check it out but your money is better off spent going to the Ripleys aquarium below or taking pictures with the giant Cheeto as well.
