Detroit is definitely a wonder.

Corn Palace and Wall Drugs are wonders, but moreso testaments, to the inanity of American tourist culture. Of course, it's nice to be able to stop at something more than the umpteenth McDonalds, which we did driving around Virginia in May. The Corn Palace restrooms are pretty good.

I noticed no one mentioned the Great White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Its 275 sq miles of white gypsum sand dunes.

Depends on what you include as wonders. Natural? Man-made? Scientific or Cultural Achievements? I don't think it would be fair to compare say, the Grand Canyon with the Golden Gate Bridge.
