Toronto Attractions

  • CN Tower
    Visit the tallest freestanding structure in the world and take in an amazing view of the city from this unique perspective, just two miles from Park Hyatt Toronto Yorkville! Glass-walled elevators glide up the 553m tower, stopping first at the incredible 346m-high Look Out level. Visitors can also walk down one level to experience the Glass Floor, where you can see all the way down to street level. Above the Look Out is the world's highest public observation gallery, the Skypod - 447m above the ground. From here, on a clear day, the sweeping vista stretches to Niagara Falls, 161km south, and to Lake Simcoe, 193km north. It’s no wonder that CN Tower is among the top tourist attractions in Toronto!
