CN Tower – Wonder of the Modern World

    One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the CN Tower, is celebrating a few anniversaries today.  The CN Tower is the world’s tallest tower, at 1, 815 feet 5 inches.  It cost approximately $63 million to build, and 40 months to complete.  Today marks 3 separate anniversaries for the CN Tower: in 1976, the CN Tower was opened to the public; in 1994, the Tower celebrated the opening of the glass floor; and in 1998, the entertainment expansion was opened.  The CN Tower has a variety of ways that tourists can enjoy the view including the Look Out level, the Glass Floor, the Sky Pod, and the latest attraction, the EdgeWalk.
