Vote for the 2017 Attraction Awards

The voting period for the 2017 Attraction Awards has begun! We’ve sorted through the nominations and have selected seven of the top contenders for each category, which was no easy task considering the competition for many of these categories.

NEW THIS YEAR! You can submit two additional votes for your favorite attraction by liking and sharing its photo in our Facebook photo galleries, linked below each of the polls! Each like and each share counts as a separate vote. Combined with the polls below, you will have the chance to vote up to three times per category.

Voting will end this Sunday, May 28 at 11:59 p.m. CST. The winners will be announced soon thereafter.

Keep in mind: this is a lighthearted, nonscientific poll.

UPDATE: Voting has ended. Winners will be announced soon!
