Things You Need To Do When Visiting CN Tower, Toronto

Right in the center of downtown Toronto is the most emblematic icon, the Canadian National Tower, or simply the CN Tower.

Toronto’s first-time tourists would naturally have the popular CN Tower at the very top of their path. And that’s just what tvwallmounting team did on their first day of sightseeing in Toronto.

Right after exploring the Toronto Islands and having a short lunch, we walked a few blocks from the Harbourfront Core to the tower. You can conveniently find it in the multitude of buildings in the city of Toronto.

Appreciating the view it’s not the only thing at the tower that you can do. You are starving. Within the tower, there are many food choices.

For some coffee and light treats, there’s the Le Cafe at the top of the building and the Vue Bistros on the LookOut floor. In addition, while enjoying the spectacular views of the area, you can use the 360 Restaurant for true value.

At the CN Tower, something which thrill-seekers look forward to all the EdgeWalk.

But this is for you, for those who enjoy living the life, so you can actually step on the edge at the right of the tallest pod of the house.

The experience costs C$225 + tax, which can include photographs and recordings, and your very own certificates of accomplishment, of course. Over all, it is not an easy feat to do!

The CN Tower is within walking distance of many popular tourist destinations, such as Canada’s Ripley’s Aquarium, Steam Whistle Brewery, Train Museum, and Rogers Centre.

Before going to the CN Tower, we initially wanted to visit Ripley’s Aquarium first, but they had a private event in the evenings so they are closing faster than normal.

Since we didn’t want to hurry between the two sights, we agreed to just go back to the aquarium the very next day. Even so, we are yet to rebound from our fatigue, and the few hours we spent wandering around the Toronto Islands were enough for the day.
