CN Tower

It is a symbol of Toronto, a masterful piece of engineering, a field trip staple, fodder for a million postcards and the subject of countless phallic jokes that have been and are to come; it is the CN Tower, 553.3 metres of pure Canada.

The CN Tower held the world’s tallest freestanding structure title for more than 30 years until it was knocked off in 2010 (don’t worry CN, you’ll always be the tallest in our hearts). The tower is home to observation decks, a revolving restaurant and a glass floor, and it is still being used as a communication tower for broadcasting radio and TV signals.

I got to experience one of the CN Tower’s most exciting attractions with Ford Canada, the Edge Walk. Read more about that.
