The CN Tower is arguably the most iconic landmark in Toronto, if not Ontario! In fact, in 1995, the CN Tower was listed as one of the seven modern wonders of the world. I do hate how many 'Wonders of the World' lists there are. They confuse me. If you are confused, read more here. Also listed on the 7 modern wonders of the world are: Itaipu Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Panama Canal, the Chunnel under the English Channel, the North Sea Protection Works off the European coast, and the Empire State Building. The CN Tower was finished in 1975, is used as a broadcasting station and measures at 553.33 metres. I think they are the three main facts! Now for why it is appealing to me. Firstly, I love the way it dominates the Toronto skyline, by day or by night! nce at the top, the view of Toronto is literally breathtaking. Literally. This is another area that viewing Toronto in the winter beats viewing in the summer. In the summer, all you see from the top of the tower is the city. A stunning view of the city and you can perhaps see for further, but it is still just the city (this is entirely subjective, however), but in the winter the ice makes pretty patterns on Lake Ontario and everything is covered in snow. I have so hated the snow that I had forgotten that I actually once liked it! There is also the 360° restaurant. It is rather pricey, but it isn't so bad if you do what Kim and I did and buy a piece of cake for $10 and share it (there is plenty for two people) and a drink each. Many people simply order drinks and sit looking at Toronto with them, so you won't be alone if you don't order something larger on the menu. It was wonderful to sit and look at the shadow cast by the CN Tower, trying to work out whereabouts on the shadow we were sitting and marveling at how far it spreads a roast here stop. The city!!!
Ripley's Aquarium Of Canada
I waited for so long for this to open! And then I waited for so long to visit, but finally I have! The Ripleys Aquarium of Canada, in Toronto, finally opened and it was so fantastic, I honestly wanted to love it, but I am not so sure I did. I would welcome opinions on this! The Ripleys Aquarium is a valuable tool to provide sensory understanding and knowledge to children and adults worldwide about the oceans of our World. The information and the feeling of being in the ocean is so worthwhile. In addition to the knowledge and understanding provided to the public, the Ripleys Aquarium has a fantastic understanding of conservation, they are so wonderful at helping to clean up the shores of Canada, and it is nice to feel like you are part of that.
Toronto DowntownA compact downtown that can be easily covered walking has a range of things to do. It is highly recommended to take the Toronto City Pass that gives access to 5 attractions and can be used leisurely over 10 days. Ripley's aquarium, CN Tower,Rogers Stadium, Air Canada center are very close to each other and easily accessible from Union Station. Royal Ontario museum and Casa Loma can be visited together however the latter can be given a skip.Eaton center is a decent shopping mall, St Lawrence is a lively food market, and Distillery District is a unique experience of Art n Beer!Toronto has a great nightlife with a range of pubs, bars and discotheque and the city comes to life at night.
