The CN Tower has been an icon for Canada since the day it was built. It’s no surprise that a visit to Toronto isn’t complete without the jaw-dropping view of the city that only the CN Tower (or a helicopter?) could provide.
So that’s just what we did on our recent visit to the nation’s biggest city. We were told to get there before 11AM when the huge crowds begin to pour in. We weren’t interest in 2-hour lineups so we woke up at 7:30AM, had breakfast and then walked to the tower, which was 45 minutes from our hotel.
At about 9:30 in the morning, we were being loaded onto the elevators of the CN Tower, where we were “shot” up into the sky at speeds of 22 Km/h. Prepare for some ear pressure as you reach a height of 346m. The CN Tower is one of the world’s highest observation towers giving visitors impressive views of both Toronto and Lake Ontario.
