The CN tower gets struck by lightning an average of 75 times per year. Lightning never strikes twice in the same place? I think not……..
If you look closely, you’ll notice a big faux pas by my daughter. She was very brave wearing her favourite team’s logo on her head, especially since the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadians are long time rivals on the ice.
When your standing almost as high as they are flying.
Below is the giant rubber ducky that was temporarily docked in Toronto’s harbour for Canada’s 150th celebration. There really isn’t any correlation between rubber duckies and Canada, but it’s interesting nonetheless. The mallard, which stands 6 stories high was a copy of a project by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. The duck was “hatched” in 2014. The duck was a definite hit with the kids and was nested there for the celebrations but has since made her way to Sault Ste-Marie and Mariland. The CN Tower also provides a view from a glass bottom floor.
Our mini vacation to Toronto began with a quick stop at the CN Tower. I’m not going to lie…..I was terrified but survived. I don’t do well with heights normally, and this definitely put me to the test. The elevator ride up took just under a minute and the glass doors provided a great view of how high and fast we were going up. With at height of 1,815 ft and 5 inches (because those last 5 inches put me over my height limitations) it definitely provides a great view of Toronto. It is costly and time consuming. At $46.00//pp and an almost 3 hour wait we were happy to get up there and see for ourselves just how lovely Toronto truly is.
