The CN Tower Toronto was created to increase phone and transmission signals above the highrises in the city. This particular viewing and communications tower stands 1,815.4 ft (553.33 metres) high. About completion in 1976 it was the tallest free-standing framework on the planet along with the tallest tower on earth. Amazingly it held these two records for more than 34 years.

The structure has turned into a more popular icon of Toronto's sky line as well as a image of Canada itself. The CN stands for the Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. More than 2 million guests all edges from the planet visit the tower yearly. The tower system has earned other records like the world's highest bar, the highest wine cellar and also the highest revolving restaurant.

Construction around the CN Tower Toronto began last month 6, 1973, and the overall time for building was 40 months. It was initially opened for the public on June 26, 1976 although the official opening was scheduled for October 1, 1976. The tower weighs 130,000 tons or 117,910 metric tonnes. The volume of concrete used was 53,000 cubic yards and 80 miles of tensioned steel was used.

It really is tough to believe that a tower made from metallic and cement might have a lot to complete. There are no less than six glass-fronted, high-speed elevators that may travel 20 feet or six metres per second. Once you race up in just 58 seconds you will be treated with a breath-taking view of the city and surrounding countryside.

The CN Tower Toronto offers a excellent cuisine experience. The 360 Restaurant opened for business on April 25, 1995. It requires 72 minutes for one revolution of the restaurant. The menu is known for its market-fresh cuisine using regional ingredients. Try the pork tenderloin that is loaded with almonds and spinach for a great main course. The Caesar salad is great and for a treat try out the butterscotch budino with rhubarb stuffing.

If the 360 is packed (it has a capacity of 400 people) or you have no reservations, you might want to try casual the Horizons Cafe. There you can also get breathtaking views of Lake Ontario and also the city. Items around the menu include preparing salads, a pot of soup, appetizers, pastas and various meats and seafood dinners. Of course there's dessert to complete the meal.

Oddly enough, the CN Tower Toronto can't be referred to as a building since it does not have continuous floors from the ground-up. This is based on the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. So although the tower features numerous observation tiers, restaurants and a gift shop we can't refer to it as a building.

Going to the tower during the night delivers one more adventure for the visitor. The city mild having a full moon or no moon is really a magnificent sight. You may also experience the glass flooring, the EdgeWalk, viewing decks and other interesting attractions around the tower itself.
