For Canada Day, we're looking at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park. And if you're thinking that this amazing view is worth more than $20, you're right. But this priceless scene was once featured on Canada's $20 bill, hence the nickname. Canada Day, celebrated on July 1, commemorates the date in 1867 when Canada was recognized as a self-governing country under the British Empire. It's not exactly Canadian Independence Day—it marks the passing of the Constitution Act of 1867, which was the first major step toward Canada's sovereignty.
