Danger? Come on people, this is one of Canada’s busiest tourist attractions! The CN Tower is the most recognizable landmark in the country. From its viewing deck, enjoy 360 degree views of Toronto and Lake Ontario, grab a meal in the restaurant, or enjoy the knee-shaking view below from the glass platform. To really feel the tower’s impressive height, brave the CN Tower Edge Walk, the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 1.5 metre ledge 116 stories above the ground.

Where to Stay : We recommend staying with our trusted partner, the Intercontinental Toronto Centre when visiting Toronto.
Getting There : The CN Tower is located at 301 Front St W. It’s a difficult landmark to miss. Once you enter the base, you’ll see signs pointing you towards the Edgewalk.
