Sightseeing in Toronto

Monument / Landmark
“It's an iconic sight that any visitor to Toronto must see. Whether you go to the top floor and just view the beautiful views of Toronto or you decide to have a dinner at 360* restaurant, it will be a day to remember (cheaper to buy pre set menu at the 360 restaurant for $65- two course meal, that will include lift tickets).Just lift tickets by itself cost $38, so its a really good deal!!!!”

“CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium and St. Lawrence Market, a beautiful long walk. Take Front street and walk east. You’ll walk by the CN Tower, the tall free-standing structure, a great way to see the city from way above. Ripley’s is next to the CN Tower. You will then walk through the financial district and a part of the original downtown which is Yonge Street. Yonge street runs north-south, it is said to be the longest street in the world, walk north and explore. Yonge street divides the city from the east side to the west side. There’s a big mall called The Eaton Centre at Yonge and Queen/Dundas. St. Lawrence Market is at Jarvis/Front. http://www.stlawrencemarket.com/ www.cntower.ca/en-ca/home.html ”
