8. Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan

Who knew wide-open space could be so gorgeous? At Saskatchewan’s Grasslands National Park, you won’t find mountains, ocean, or forest—the usual scenic jaw-droppers. Instead, you’ll find prairie fields as far as the eye can see. Enjoy the stark beauty of the prairies while you watch bison, prairie dogs, and antelope roam through the grasslands.
