5 landmarks that light up in Toronto at night
Toronto is dotted with landmarks that'll help you orient yourself no matter what state you're in by the end of the night. Many are distinctive to the neighbourhoods they're located in, becoming sources of pride to those who pass by them on a daily basis.
Here are some notable landmarks that light up in Toronto at night.
It's our most iconic symbol and you can see it from far, far away - even in the nether regions of the GTA. While most of us think of it as a tourist trap, we were all still amazed and delighted by the spectacular fireworks show it provided during the Pan Am Games.
Nathan Phillips Square
The rainbow-coloured Toronto Sign is another legacy project from the Pan Am Games. As soon as the city installed it, it became an Instagram legend. And, it ignited quite the debate when Mayor John Tory asked where it should go next.
SkyBridge in CityPlace
The SkyBridge at CityPlace seems to defy gravity. It spawns two storeys and is 130 feet long. If you're wondering how it got up there, you should check out this video of its majestic ascent.
Honest Ed's Sign
There's usually a photographer standing on the north side of Bloor pointing a camera at the gaudy, but beloved Honest Ed's Sign. Though Honest Ed's will disappear to make way for condos at the end of 2016 (RIP), let's hope its sign continues to shine bright.
