Lookout Tower 1This sounds like an amazing trip and I would love to take it one day. I haven’t been to Toronto (close, but not yet) but we have been to Vancouver a few times and enjoyed seeing the Lookout Tower Harbour Centre.  Such amazing views from the top. I can’t imagine what views we would see on the train trip. Hopefully one day. If you have been, please leave a comment and share your experience. I would love to hear about your experience.
