We visited the CN Tower in the evening. I believe the line up wait was shorter, which was good, but the view was not as good. However the lights were beautiful.

Quite a busy area to go to especially in the tourist seasons but definitely worth going up to. The glass floor is great.

Not prepared for the stunning views from this tower. The glass lift is high speed and you see the ground shooting away. Glass floor area for the brave, a restaurant which is priced separately and a further viewing floor even higher. A great souvenir shop, good prices and variety of stock. There is also an eatery in the basement with... More

It is a must to go up the CN tower in Toronto, but beware at what time to go as the queues can be long especially at weekends, we found the best time with the smallest queue was at 5-530pm as this gives you time to see all in daylight and by staying on you see it all by night.... More

If you are a tourist in Toronto it's worth visiting this imposing tower. It is among the tallest in the world and a tourist attraction. You could either have a meal at the restaurant on the top or just take the elevator to the top. If you can time it to get to the top a little before sunset you... More

We've been up many City needles before, but this is a magnificent feat of engineering. Designed with copper cabling through its center, to divert electricity down into the ground, we were shocked to learn that the CN Tower is struck by lightning an average of 75 times each year! There are opportunities to walk the circumference on the outside as... More

I would advise anyone who has purchased the toronto pass to go straight through to the main building, we stood in the (thankfully) short queue to exchange our pass ticket for a real ticket only to be told to go to the visitors kiosk inside (this was not mentioned in the booklet or anywhere at the Tower) i would have...

I've been atop the Needle in Seattle, the Empire State Blg and the Effiel Tower ....the CN Tower was comparable nothing extraordinary. ...except for a glass floor that was great...if you're not afraid to stand on and look wayyyy down! Worth the trip.... (Effiel was great!)

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
