A booming Canadian city has made the list of must-visit destinations for 2014.

Number 17 on the list, Calgary is the only Canadian city to make The New York Times list of 52 Places To Go in 2014.

"An oil boom town gets its cultural legs," states the article. "Flush with oil money, Calgary has morphed from ho-hum city on the prairie into a cultural hub, with offerings far beyond the Stampede, the annual rodeo and festival."

The list highlights the city's controversial Peace Bridge and downtown Bow Tower, among other things.

Destinations joining Calgary on the list include Cape Town, Perth, Dubai and downtown Los Angeles.

Here's a look at the top 10 destinations on the list:
