  1. This is a really great list. Just coming up with 101 things is an accomplishment in its self..I'm not sure if I could :) I have been to the 360 restaurant at the CN tower before it was really cool....just make sure you go on clear day/night haha. Also when you go you should walk on the glass floor! I was terrified when I did...but then again I'm scared of hights haha.

    1. Ooh, that's so nice, but the distance keeps me from visiting Canada in the foreseeable future, unfortunately
