CALGARY – A scenic hamlet in southern Alberta has been named among the top ten travel destinations worth visiting, even if it breaks the bank.

Lake Louise was the only Canadian spot on the list from Hotels.com, which was released on Thursday.

Nestled in the mountains near the B.C. border, Lake Louise placed ninth on the list thanks to its average daily hotel rate of $250.
