Best Toronto Attractions: CN Tower
There’s no mistaking it: the CN Tower remains the mother of all Toronto attractions. A 58-second elevator ride whisks you to the 114th story of the world’s ninth tallest free-standing structure—the 181-story, 1,815.5-foot communications tower built by Canadian National Railway in 1976. Breathtaking views from the glass-fronted elevator set the stage for more dizzying sights from the Look Out, where on a clear day you can see as far as the Canada-US border. Visitors with nerves of steel can walk on the Glass Floor for a view 1,122-ft straight down. For panoramic views, 1,465 ft above the ground, take an elevator up 33 more stories to the world’s highest man-made observatory.
