CN Tower Third Most Popular Destination In the World

CN Tower Third Most Popular Destination In the World

Toronto has really been killing it this year in terms of tourism and travel. The city has already been named as one of the top cities to visit in 2019 by National Geographic. It was also just recently announced that Toronto’s own CN Tower was one of the most visited stops this year.

 

For locals, it’s easy to forget about the giant needle in the sky, even though it’s unmissable. While the city might not appreciate it as much as they should, it appears that tourists love it.

 

Uber just released their list of most traveled to places, and the CN Tower can in 3rd overall! It might actually surprise people how popular the CN Tower is compared to other global landmarks.

 

The list compiled by Uber is based on customer usage data. While the US, Brazil, and India logged the most kilometers overall in 2018, our local attraction came in third overall for the most visited individual attraction on the planet.

 

Here is a list of the complete rankings of 2018’s most popular tourist attractions according to Uber:

 

  1. Empire State Building
  2. Freedom Tower
  3. CN Tower
  4. Arc de Triomphe
  5. Eiffel Tower
  6. Burj Khalifa
  7. Buckingham Palace
  8. Disneyland
  9. Golden Gate Bridge
  10. Sydney Opera House
  11. The Blue Mosque
  12. Berlin Wall
  13. The Vatican
  14. Christ the Redeemer
  15. Great Pyramid of Giza

 

Tourism plays a big part in Toronto’s economy. Tourism in Canada has been steadily growing each quarter, bringing in more revenue. This, along with real estate, plays a big role in the local economy.
