CN Tower, Toronto

4.2
Arguably Toronto's most recognizable attraction, CN Tower held the record for world's tallest building upon its completion in 1976. Still one of the world's highest towers, this spindly icon remains a landmark of the city skyline. Ride the glass elevator to the top, where on a clear day you can take in views of the city from 553 m (1,815 ft) in the air. If you choose to have a meal at the revolving restaurant, elevator access is free of charge. For an extra dose of adrenaline, daredevils can take a short walk around the edge of the tower's main pod, just above the restaurant. A visit to CN Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Toronto trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • 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
  • We did this because of having the Toronto City pass. Defiantly worth getting if you plan on going to the museums and different things it has to offer on the pass. This is nice because its an easy place to hit for a short period of time. You can go up and spend as much time as you would like. It is pretty busy, but not terribly.
  • Paid 3 dollars extra for a timed ticket and skipped an 1.5 hour wait! Straight to the top and enjoyed the amazing views and glass floor. Good value with friendly staff. Highly recommend. Awesome to see planes take-off and land at nearby airport.
  • Waiting times are way too long. Once you get up the view is hindered by a cage, grill like Windows so you can't really take any pictures. The top level windows also very small not really ideal for taking photos. Just to view it is fine but considering the long waiting hours like over 3-4 hours it's not really worth going up. It's a better view from outside below to see the CN tower
  • My experience from booking the tickets to visiting the observation deck was smooth as silk!! Loved being in the elevator and standing on the glass floor. The staff was very courteous and friendly. I went with my four month old, husband and dad and the whole experience was very pleasant and enjoyable. A must visit if you are in Toronto!

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
