Today I’m continuing to talk about what we did on our Rochester, NY trip. This was our 3rd day. However, we got up ate breakfast at the hotel and drove about 3 hours across the border to Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Yeah, so I love old bridges and I always take pictures of them. There’s usually nothing special about them, just interesting landmarks. This was taken in Gasport, NY at 43°11’43.518″ N 78°35’38.208″ W
From there we headed on to our condo that we rented for the night located just a short walk from Rogers Centre and the CN Tower (which is the tower in the picture below).
After settling in we walked over to the CN Tower. We had tickets for that day, which at the time just meant you could go any time that day and since we wanted to have time to eat dinner before going to the Blue Jays game we thought we better get in line.
If you’ve never heard of the CN Tower, it used to be the world’s tallest free-standing structure for 32 years until 2007 when it was surpassed by at tower in Dubai. The CN Tower is now the ninth tallest free-standing structure in the world and remains the tallest free-standing structure on land in the Western Hemisphere. The CN Tower was declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1995.
We were excited to watch an Auburn University Alum, Josh Donaldson play. He hit a homerun that night! Fun game. The seats are super tight and not comfortable when you have a very large person sitting next to you.
Stay tuned for next travel post when we go to Niagra Falls!
