Get Really High as the CN Tower’s EdgeWalk Reopens for Spring

STARTS APRIL 15  Ah, spring! That pleasant season when flowers begin to blossom, temperate breezes return and you can finally head outside for a leisurely stroll. Leisurely, that is, unless you’re at the CN Tower, where EdgeWalk adds serious wow-factor to your warm-weather wandering. This city’s tallest building is also the site of its most thrilling attraction, which allows daredevils to strut around the roof of the tower’s restaurant, more than 350 metres above street level. The harnessed, open-air amble lasts approximately 30 minutes—you’ll get an hour-long safety lesson beforehand—but you’ll remember it for the rest of  your life. Open daily, $175; call 416-601-3833 or visit EdgeWalk’s website to book.  —Craig Moy
