CN Tower, Toronto

(4.2/5 based on 16,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit CN Tower and other attractions in Toronto using our Toronto vacation route planner.

  • Where: CN Tower, Toronto What: Toronto's main landmark How was it : It was great. We went with family (first timers in Canada) so we thought we'd go big right away ! They were immediately impressed of the structure, the height and the glass floor. No one could get enough courage to step on it, how funny is that. We loved this place. Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 4+ Recommend: you gotta
  • Went on the CN tower over Labour day weekend, The view was awesome. We had to wait in a very long line to go up (1 hour 45 minutes to be exact) but the wait was well worth it!. Walked on the glass floor and also went up to the sky pod. If u have patience and can wait in the line trust me it's well worth it. I went with my wife and two daughters and we made it up there just in time for the sun to set. Awesome views. Will be back soon!!. No matter if u go when they open or u go when they are about to close, there will always be a waiting time to go up.
  • I was here last month. I was surprised to look up the tower. You can see where the city. And I like that. And blown up there strong winds. And that's great. :) I recommend you come here.
  • I am absolutely horrified of heights - even the top floor of the Eaton Centre is a struggle for me since the railings are glass - but this is as iconic as an icon gets. You have to visit the CN Tower when in Toronto. From so high up, you can appreciate the scope and busyness of Canada's largest city. There is a little glass box at the top where you can hang, become terrified and take pictures with the entire city below your feet. A fun experience for the whole family, but admission prices are expensive.
  • Very nice view of the city from the tower but... Impossible to take good pictures from there. You have basically three options: - The floor where the bar is. This floor has the best windows, BUT, the tables of the bar occupy more than half of the windows... Really? After paying 35 CAD + taxes I am forced to pay again for some expensive drinks if I want to enjoy the views from a zone other than the tiny public area? - The glass floor level. You can go outside and enjoy the views with a horrible wire netting with very small holes that will ruin any picture you try to take. - The SkyPod. It's not included in the standard ticket, you have to pay 12 CAD + taxes to get there. Again, the views are incredible but the windows are not clean enough, they have lots of metallic elements that will ruin your photos and they are so far from the railing that it's impossible to touch the glass with the camera lens to avoid getting dust marks and reflections in the picture. Honestly, they should remove the bar or at least give you a discount if you drink something there. The best observation deck is ruined because the bar occupies more than half of the windows. Having been to many other observation towers, this one was one of the most disappointing ever (and not because of the views).
