North American National Park #28: Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

Waterton Lakes National Park is located on the southern border of Alberta and is adjacent to Glacier National Park in Montana. Together, Glacier and Waterton form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Waterton is much smaller than its neighbor to the south, but may be more beautiful. Situated around Lake Waterton, the park has a gorgeous view of the surrounding Rocky Mountains. It also has one of the classic national park hotels in all of North America, the Prince of Wales Hotel.

Waterton should be a must visit for anyone who visits Glacier, and vice versa. It is approximately a 2 hour drive from Calgary and it open year round, with summer being the peak season.
