Yeah, I recommend the sites in D.C., as they're among the best and most historic in the U.S.

Surprising list really. WTF is Navy Pier doing that far up there....ahead of the Grand Canyon and all those Universal Studios and Sea World type parks, where's Yellowstone??

Anyway, I'd go to the National Mall. I could probably spend a week going through all of those museums.

Is it really sad that NONE of the top ten interest me? If I was going to see something moving/meaningful I'd visit the Oklahoma City Bombing memorial or I'd go the scenic route to mountains. But, if I just wanted to see a "tourist attraction" and have tons of fun, I'd have to say the St. Louis Zoo has a lot to offer, as does The Magic House. Or head out to Meramec Caverns and stop by the toy museum on the same exit for a nostalgic experience that will leave you missing your childhood play time. St. Louis has a lot to offer and we weren't in the top ten - bummer! See lots to do in St. Louis here: [url=http://bit.ly/8YFKwZ]St. Louis Children's Recreation Examiner[/url]

Niagara Falls. I mean you can see man made things everywhere, but Nigara is all natural and on the border of two countries and did I mention it's a water fall? Yeah enough said.

I wonder how Forbes can consistently keep coming up with such useless lists. From the choices offered in this poll, I notice that Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon are all absent. After a while, you have to start wondering whether the water coolers at Forbes are doctored.

I've been in D.C. all my life so the national mall and parks, no seen them all.
Also been to New York countless times, so no to Times Square.

The Las Vegas Strip and Navy Pier in Chicago are the only ones that catch interest to me.

I've been to Washington D.C., New York City, Boston, all the amusement parks in central Florida, Niagara Falls, and the Great Smoky Mountains (my favorite). Out of the remaining choices, I'd choose Las Vegas and the Strip, but there are many things I would first prefer to see (the Grand Canyon, historic Santa Fe, Macinack Island, the Outer Banks, the national parks in Utah, etc.)
