World's Coolest New Tourist Attractions 2014

The next big thing is now, and here’s where to find it.

Glacier Skywalk, Jasper National Park, Canadian Rockies

4 of 26

Unobstructed views down past your feet to the Sunwapta Valley’s forests and glacier-fed waterfalls will be the big draw at Jasper National Park’s new Glacier Skywalk when it opens in May—that, and the thrill of edging out 918 feet above the ground on a piece of glass. Like the Grand Canyon Skywalk, it required a feat of engineering to build the curved walkway, which juts 100 feet from a cliff; the project won a design award before it was even constructed. glacierskywalk.ca
