CN Tower Toronto, Canada

Updated on September 27, 2014

During our visit to Canada, we had to check out the CN Tower. The CN Tower in Toronto, Canada stands a whopping 1,815 feet tall. It currently holds the record of the tallest freestanding-structure in the Americas.

From 1975 - 2010 the CN tower held the records of: the World's Tallest Free-Standing Structure and the World's Tallest Tower. In 1995 the American Society of Civil Engineers declared it one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. View photos of the CN Tower below.

The GLASS FLOOR!

Way up 114 stories above the ground is the tower's infamous glass floor. I would not get on it, but my daughter did. I was not happy at all! In fact I was almost in tears, begging her to get off of it. My family was laughing at me.

My husband took the photos shown below. In the images with my daughter you can not see the ground. The shot with just the floor should give you an idea of why I was freaking out so bad.

CN Tower at Night

Unfortunately we did not get to see the city from the tower at night. We thought it would take a while to get to the top. However there were no lines and we got up there pretty quickly. We ended up leaving at dusk. The photo above is of the tower at dusk. The photo below is one I found on amazon, it is a view of the city from the tower at night.
