C N Tower

It's the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere.

You can reach the SkyPod in one of six elevators (one has a glass floor!) travelling at 20 feet per second, and when you arrive, you'll probably need a beer to calm your frazzled nerves at the world's highest bar at at 346 metres (1,135 ft).

THis sounds like it would be GREAT Experience to go up to the top---Not sure I could take the Glass Floor...lol....! But, it certainly would be fun trying...!

This is a very neat shot of this famous landmark!

I must confess to watching this being built but never having gone up to the top..or in fact even visited it at all. I don't 'do' heights..!

Wow! That's a spectacular image, Sham. I had no clue this was the world's tallest free-standing structure. I just got my education...again!

Unfortunately, I am scared of heights. When in Toronto, we actually stayed just a couple of blocks from the tower, but I never went up - nor wanted to do so!

Great shot. The glass floor is a lot of fun. Amazing how tentative those first steps are even know you know it's perfectly safe.

I remember going there in 1996 and standing over the glass floor. I don't think their elevator was glass floored then though.
