National Historic Landmark and longtime-favorite Myrtle Beach area attraction, Brookgreen Gardens, has been nominated for an online contest that could feature them as the ‘8th Wonder of the World.'

VirtualTourist, a worldwide travel community, is sponsoring the contest that highlights landmarks from across the globe. The winner will be featured in a national TV segment, and we're hoping that winner will be Brookgreen Gardens! Those that have visited the gardens-once home to former rice plantations-know that they play host to the largest outdoor collection of American sculpture art in the world along with a nature and historical center and Lowcountry zoo.

Have you spent any time at this fantastic Myrtle Beach area attraction? If so, please consider casting a vote in VirtualTourist's online contest. Voting is open to everyone, and voters are able to cast one ballot daily through September 30 at One of the best things about the contest is registration is not required and voting only takes a second! And after you vote, we'd love to hear about your experience at this Murrells Inlet treasure!
