Come along for a very casual tour of the CN tower with us!
Ben and I only had one day to tour downtown Toronto so we chose the CN Tower and the Aquarium. Thanks Quenton and Martha for the recommend! The CN Tower has been on our bucket list as a couple for a long time. While most of our big trips together have been in the States it was nice to visit a hot spot right in our own country!
Toronto is a very big city, for us small town folk, hehe. And we definitely felt it once we were in it. I don’t think I have ever been in a city with that many skyscrapers! I am so thankful that Ben loves to drive on our holidays because I get to sit back and relax while he drove in the intense traffic!
Once we found a parking spot we headed to the TOWER. By the way we would recommend just paying for parking. It would honestly take forever to find a spot otherwise. We bought a timed ticket so that we wouldn’t have to wait in line longer than necessary. I think it was only a few dollars more per ticket and well worth it as the general line was very long. We also bought a ticket to see the Sky-pod which is above the look out level which was neat!
The view from the top was amazing! The skyscrapers looked pretty puny way up high and we even spotted the view of the Rogers Centre (if you like baseball). Refer to pictures to see for yourself! It only took a couple hours for us to tour the tower including the lineups. So we had time for a delicious meal at Moxies and a trip to Ripley’s Aquarium afterwards. Which I would highly recommend! I don’t want to spoil anything for you but let’s put it this way. Coming from a person who doesn’t really enjoy zoo’s or aquariums I was super impressed!!! Both Ben and I enjoyed it! P.S. The tower and aquarium are literally right beside one another and everything is within easy walking distance once you’ve parked.
Thanks for joining us in casual travel fun, XO, Ben and Emmarie. Hope you get to go and see it for yourself soon!
