La Tour CN Tower

It is hard to imagine the #Toronto skyline without the CN Tower, it stands out like a … big tower thingy in almost all photos of the city. Opened in 1976 the 553.33 metre structure will soon be 40 years old (in 2016) and still attracts approximately 1.5 million visitors a year. 
Taking advantage of the smaller crowds at night we checked out the lookout and glass floor levels for several minutes before the fog completely shut down visibility. We got to see up close some of the 1,330 LED fixtures that put on an impressive light show and that add some much needed colour to the city. 
Great views of the city from the observation deck

Some other features of the tower include the following. 

Edgewalk at 356 metres above the ground – billed as the highest external walk on a building, opened in 2011. 
360 Restaurant (revolves) 
Horizons Restaurant 
Motion Theatre Ride 
Movie Theatre 
Café and gift shop

See more of the space needle after the jump.

Attractions next door include the Rogers Centre
Ripley's Aquarium is just a short swim away from the base of the tower

Goretti and her son David are from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut and the CN Tower was their must visit destination in Toronto
Legoland had a scale model set up in the gift shop
