Here are a few exciting suggestions for your trip:
• Rogers Centre: Rogers Centre is a large arena that hosts sporting events for baseball home team the Toronto Blue Jays. • CN Tower: The CN Tower holds the distinction of being the world’s seventh tallest free-standing structure, though it was originally the tallest in the world in 1976. It’s actually a communications tower, but visitors may take the elevator up to the top where there is a 360-degree observation window. There are three visitor areas in the tower. There is an outdoor observation deck, an indoor lookout level, and a SkyPod. There’s also a restaurant where you can have a meal while enjoying the scenery. • EdgeWalk: This is located up in the CN Tower. It’s an amusement that enables people to walk outside and around the roof of the tower. While it’s hands-free, without a railing, people are safely tethered to the building. The thrill attraction only operates in good weather and wind conditions. • CF Toronto Eaton Centre: Named after the iconic Eaton department store which is no longer around, this shopping center has a brand name and high end shops where you can find a wide variety of goods.
