The CN Tower is 553.33 m or 1,815 feet 5 inches tall and it is the dominant feature of the Toronto skyline. I have to be honest: I’ve worked in the city for so long that I barely notice it anymore. How, you might ask, is it possible to walk by a giant phallus everyday and not even notice it? Well, I suppose that it sort of blends in after awhile. Weird, I know.
I have been to the top of the tower twice and the first time was when I did the CN Tower Climb for World Wildlife Fund. Back when I was at my fittest, I was able to climb the 144 flights of stairs in about 20 minutes (I wasn’t even sore the next day!). I have also dined in the very expensive restaurant, which, other than being pricey, wasn’t all that memorable.
I think if you are new to the city, the CN Tower might be a fun novelty to check out, but it is definitely not my favourite attraction in Toronto. So, what is? Well, you will just have to wait until next week to find out!
Have you ever been to the CN Tower? If so, what did you think? If not, would you like to?
