Remember talking about the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World in your grade school social studies class – you know, that list of exotic, far-off places like the Great Pyramid of Giza or the Hanging Gardens of Bablyon? Well, AOL Travel and the U.S. Travel Association have partnered to put their own list together – this one featuring the Seven Wonders of the United States – and the Coronado Performing Arts Center in Rockford, Ill., is in the running!
The contest features several categories, including historical, natural, water, wildlife and unusual wonders, and the Coronado is in the running for the architectural wonders category. The theater was chosen by AOL Travel’s editorial staff from among more than 100 submissions because of its unique, one-of-kind atmospheric style. Some of its top competitors in the architectural category are the St. Louis Gateway Arch and the Biltmore in North Carolina.
Voting ends June 30, so be sure to vote for the Coronado Performing Arts Center as the top architectural wonder, as well as your top picks for the other categories. Vote today!
