The Striking City Views of Toronto from The CN Tower: Things To Do in Toronto


Whenever we visit a new city, I'd always propose hitting an observation deck or a lookout. It's fun trying to memorize the layout of the city from way up there. That, if you could! :P

For our last road trip for the year 2019, allow me to take you with us on a photo tour of the city of Toronto from high up in the sky. Keep on reading...

The CN Tower: Things To Do in Toronto

This feeling is familiar! As the elevator lifted us 346m up to the lookout level, my legs wobbled in excitement for the spectacular view awaiting us at the top. We were told the ride up will only take 58 seconds. How cool is that?

It was my 2-year-old's reaction I look forward to the most since this is his first time visiting an observation deck. Seeing his fun little reactions brings delight to my heart. If you're a doting parent, like me, you could probably relate.  Haha. 

"Hmm... will he be scared? amazed? perhaps I'm overly anticipating something I should not!" Let's see...


First Visit

As if it happened yesterday, I could recall our lethargic attitudes the first time we came. Can you believe we did our sightseeing inside the car? Why you asked? Here's our story. Warning, all photos are taken inside the car! ;)

Now, back to CN Tower...


Parking

Parking spaces abound near CN Tower. If you could, time your visit when there's no big event. The nearest parking area we found is at the south lot of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

We paid $12 CAD. The parking fee after 5pm costs more at $15 CAD.


CN Tower Admissions

You can actually choose how you want to experience at CN Tower. Fine dining? Reserve a seat at the 360 Restaurant. Feeling brave? Do the EdgeWalk. Deep-sea adventure at the heart of downtown? Visit Ripley's Aquarium. City view of Toronto from high up in the air? Simply pay for the general admissions ticket only.

Oh, and you also get to access the Glass Floor area. There you can lie down and take photos with the view of the street below and fill in your phone storage with lots of selfies. Don't worry the see-through floor glass won't break on you!

Since we only came for the aerial view of the city of Toronto, we paid the general admissions ticket for $38 CAD per person. You can upgrade to the SkyPod (highest viewing level at the CN Tower) for an additional cost of $15 CAD. Children under 4 years of age are free of charge.

Eat

Expect to pay more considering this is a tourist place! We were so hungry when we arrived since we came all the way from Ottawa, that's 4++ hours drive to Toronto. We had light meals at VUE Bistros located on the lookout. There's another one at the base called Le Cafe.

If you have high-class taste, reserve a seat at 360 Restaurant.

And the Little Boy?

Look how happy he was. He even threw a tantrum when it's time to go. Oops! I'll have to go to calm him down. Haha!
