After a fun-filled day at the Hockey Hall of Fame, make a play for the CN Tower. It’s an attraction Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi recommends for visitors to the city, even if Toronto’s residents treat the needle building as just another skyscraper in a metropolis full of them.

Brijbassi writes: “Torontonians don’t get too excited about the tower any more. It’s been around for nearly 40 years and for most residents it serves as a directional landmark more than a place to go. But the tower — the tallest free-standing structure in Canada — is a thrill and visitors won’t be disappointed. The view in any direction you look — but especially facing southeast toward Lake Ontario and beyond on a clear day — is magnificent. (Here’s a video)”

Brijbassi makes more recommendations for visitors coming into town to experience the activity on game days during the NHL playoffs as the Toronto Maple Leafs chase the Stanley Cup, which they haven’t won since 1967. Read his article “The Maple Leafs go for glory and respect.”
