The home of Cable News Network occupies all 14 floors of this dramatic structure on the edge of Downtown. The 55-minute CNN studio tour is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the control room, newsrooms, and broadcast studios. Tours depart approximately every 10 minutes. The tour descends eight flights of stairs, making it difficult for some—a limited number of tours have elevator access. You can make reservations by telephone or online.

Interesting and informative behind-the-scenes visit to this TV news network. You get to see newsrooms, studios, and control centers, plus you can have your picture taken at a mock news desk. Note that the tour starts with a ride up the tallest escalator I've ever seen and involves a lot of down-stairs walking. Advance reservations can be made and are sometimes necessary -- call ahead.

If you are news hound, you will appreciate this tour. Although the tour is not long enough, it does provide an insightful look at how this news giant operates as a well-oiled machine. If you make a reservation for one time slot and then decide to go earlier, you can still show up and get a ticket for the next available tour. After the tour, enjoy some food/drinks at the vast "food court" on the main level.
