Perhaps the most talked about architectural feature in all of Toronto, measuring in at a whopping 553.3 meters high, is the CN Tower. This concrete communications and observation tower is located in downtown Toronto, undoubtedly providing the very best panoramic views of the city there is!
Construction began on the CN Tower in 1973 on Front Street, at the time being known as the tallest tower in the Western Hemisphere. The tower provided an 'eye-opening, mind-blowing new perspective' on the city views, a perspective that over 1.5 million visitors come to check out each year.
Once your group is here you will take one of 6 glass fronted elevators up to the Lookout Level, the ride only taking 58 seconds! Once on this floor, you will be able to enjoy the views out of the thermochromatic film glass windows, the lighting adjusting to improve energy efficiency and viewing. After you have looked around (literally), board the elevator on the LookOut Level to travel through the core of the Tower (33 additional stories higher) to SkyPod. This level features various exhibits covering subjects such as architecture and weather (what happens when it's really windy outside at the top of the tower?). You could also head just one level down from Lookout Level and find the Outdoor SkyTerrace, sitting at 342 meters high!
Two of the most exhilarating options at CN Tower are a bit newer, the Edge Walk and 360 Restaurant. Edge Walk is the most thrilling thing to do in Toronto, and the first attraction of it's kind in North America, allowing guests to harness into a safety rail system and take a hands-free walk along the world's highest full circle tower ledge, the ledge just 5 feet wide. This is a Canada Signature experience, one not to miss for any thrill seekers! The 360 Restaurant provides seriously fine, fresh, and local dining with even finer views, the eatery slowly rotating around to give you a look at it all!
