1.CN Tower
Towering over 1,800 feet tall, this uniquely designed building was once the largest free-standing structure in the world. The huge concrete tower contains observation decks, a revolving restaurant, and elevators and floors made of glass.

CN Tower was built in 1973 to be a transmitter for radio and TV signals, hence the 334 ft antenna at the top, and it continues to serve this purpose over forty years later. Now, over two million people visit the tower every year to see the incredible structure and views it provides. If you’re up for conquering your fear of heights or experiencing an unforgettable meal watching over all of Toronto, the CN Tower is a place you’ll want to see.

2.Niagara Falls

It would be wrong to get so close to the Niagara Falls and not tour them! This set of three massive waterfalls straddles the border of the United States and Canada and were formed over 10,000 years ago. The water from melting glaciers flowed down the Niagara River and off a cliff, eroding the land into what is now the falls. Innovators over the years have discovered a way to use the falls for energy. By setting up power stations they are able to produce one of the largest sources of hydroelectric power.

Take one of the Niagara Tours for a jam-packed day of discovering the falls, winery, hydro power stations and more. The guided tour is filled with the history of the falls, towns and attractions that surround the area. The beautiful landmark is a must see for all ages.

The whole family will enjoy a trip to Polson Pier.
