Who called it a historical site? It's been referred to as a monument in this thread. But I get that you're just trying to be condescending about the relatively shorter history period of the US compared to other parts of the world. Whatever. It's still historical even if it doesn't meet your definition.

Both have been declared Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers, and I put more stock in their opinion than yours.

.
With young kids what could be better than a trip to Orlando. Disney , Sea World, Universal Studios ND ll the parks with water slides. Certainly would not recommend it every year but I think a must visit for every kid.

yea, by American society of Civil engineers, along with the CN tower. When I saw CN tower in it, I know these "wonders" are not worth much.

Like I said ... their opinion holds much more weight with me.

You seem to have this undying need to condescend at every opportunity. Don't you realize that it makes you appear bitter, ugly, and unlikable? Though given the anonymous nature of CD, I doubt you care much. It's become a pastime for you.
