For unparalleled views of Toronto, look no further than the CN Tower.  It’s one of the tallest freestanding buildings in the world and is considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.  The soaring tower reaches the heavens and can be spotted from almost every vantage point in the city.  Breathtaking views from the top are simply unforgettable, making it one of Toronto’s unmissable attractions.

To get a rough idea as to how high the CN Tower is you can observe just how small the cars are, in fact they are barely visible. It’s the sort of view that you might expect to get from a plane.

The Glass Floor features a 1,122ft view straight down.  Finding the courage to take the first step onto the glass is a battle against human instincts and when / if you muster up the courage to do so it’s an incredibly surreal experience; albeit unforgettably amazing.

Once you have gotten over the weirdness you can jump, crawl, sit and lay on the glass. Rest assured that it is perfectly safe to do so.

There’s also a Sky Pod experience which takes you even higher up the tower to a staggering 1,465 ft, for which a separate tickets is required.  Also if you happen to get hungry there’s the360 Restaurant which offers nouvelle cuisine and is one of the most unforgettable places to dine in the city.  

I highly recommending paying the CN Tower a visit to experience the incredible views for yourself when visiting Toronto.  It was a real highlight of my trip and as someone who loves a good view, I would definitely say that the view from the top of the CN Tower is up there with the best.
