A trip to the top is a great thing to combine with an afternoon Blue Jays game at the Rogers Centre.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Go early in the morning to beat the crowds.
Until 2007, the CN Tower was the tallest free-standing structure in the world. Located right next to the Rogers Centre
, this downtown landmark is one of Toronto's premiere tourist attractions. Take an elevator trip all the way up to the sky pod (in the - the 2nd highest observation deck in the world! On a clear day, you can see the mist across Lake Ontario from the famed Niagara Falls. Watching others navigate their way across the glass floor in this observation space is as much fun as standing on it yourself, and on nice days, when the roof is open on the Rogers Centre
- you can catch a glimpse of a teeny, tiny Major League ball game happening hundreds of meters below.
All of that observing may leave you with a hunger gap. If you want to go all out, a dinner at the award-winning 360 restaurant
is a must for the full CN Tower experience, paired with a bottle of wine from the world's highest wine cellar. But if you are in the area around brunch time, you can't beat the amazing crepes from Cora's
. For a fun, delicious lunch or dinner, head to Planet Hollywood
where you can dine and check out film and TV celeb memorabilia at the same time.
