The CN Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Toronto. For thirty four years, up until the completion of the Burj Khalifa in 2010, it was the world’s tallest man-made structure.
We arrived at the CN Tower at night, about a half hour before closing, but the guy at the ticket booth said we should come back in the morning and devote at least an hour to the tour.
The CN Tower towers over all the buildings in downtown. (This distorted view from my wide angle lens makes the tower seem even taller than it should be. It’s really only like twice as tall as all the other buildings in Toronto.)An elevator ride takes you to the top of the tower. At the halfway point of the elevator ride you’re at the level of most of the downtown skyscrapers.
The tower tour was pretty cool, but at $35 I thought it way overpriced. I think closer to $10 would’ve been more appropriate.
