This Toronto sight is hard to miss since its spire dominates the skyline. At 553 metres, the CN Tower is the tallest freestanding structure in the western hemisphere, offering amazing 360° views of its surroundings from the LookOut Level at 346 metres and the impressive SkyPod observation deck at 447 metres. If you want to get your adrenaline pumping, then dare to step on the Glass Floor at 342 metres above ground or even sign up for a walk around the outer edge of the SkyPod – Edgewalk is a full-circle, hands-free test of courage. But brave daredevils will surely enjoy the thrill of standing on the edge!
