Co-op Cabs’ Favorite Places to Visit in Toronto
Toronto is the largest city in Ontario and the financial hub of Canada. It is a relatively modern city that beautifully blends its late 18th century heritage with its present day achievements. The city has many interesting places that attract millions of tourists from around the world every year. Toronto’s waterfront is one of the largest recreational waterfronts in North America and is the perennial favorite of tourists. It is where many of Co-op Cabs’ favorite places to visit in Toronto are located.
**CN Tower:** The most famous landmark in Toronto. The CN Tower rises up to a height of 1,815 feet above the city. Although no longer the tallest manmade structure in the world, it was nominated as one of the Seven Wonders of Modern World because of its incredible engineering and architecture. With glass elevators, glass door observation decks with a transparent floor, a simulator theatre, and a revolving restaurant, it’s a great place to spend the day. The tower provides a perfect bird’s eye view of the city and its surrounding areas. No visit to Toronto can be complete without visiting the CN Tower!
