Birds-Eye View See Toronto From the CN Tower
553 Meters in the Air, 360 Degree View
Visit the iconic CN (Canadian National) Tower if you want to see ALL of Toronto. The tower is 553 meters tall and is the tallest tower in the Western Hemisphere. Hop on the glass-front elevator and experience an exhilarating 58-second ride to the observation deck. Enjoy panoramic city views while standing on the glass floor of the Outdoor Sky Terrace and SkyPod, or floor-to-ceiling glass walls of the LookOut deck. If you're a daredevil, sign up for the EdgeWalk -- you'll be harnessed to a rail and walk the circumference of the open deck (not for the faint of heart!). Afterward, indulge in an incredible meal at the revolving 360 Restaurant, drop the kids off at the KidZone, or do some souvenir shopping at the gift shop.
