6) Banff National Park
Just an hour and a half drive from Calgary, Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest, and most visited, national park. Each year millions of visitors come to the park for the dark blues of the lakes and the refreshing views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Sure, the park offers the usual golfing, mountain climbing, and fishing, but it also features million-year-old glaciers and the opportunity to be a part of geological history. Even if you don’t stop, you can glide through the park on the Trans-Canada Highway, which cuts through Banff National Park.
