Reader's Choice: 7 Wonders of the US

Last month, we launched Explore America, a series of six galleries designed to educate and inspire the country to see the beauty in their own backyard. Along with the help of the U.S. Travel Association and DiscoverAmerica.com, we combed through the country, pulling out ten wonders in each of six different categories -- Natural, Wildlife, Unusual, Historical, Architectural, and Water -- and asked you, the reader, to vote on your favorites. Here, we've compiled the top seven wonders found stateside, according to number of votes, along with two honorable mentions. Read on to see which destinations took home top honors.
