Tahoe South has entered Lake Tahoe into VirtualTourist.com’s quest to crown the “8th Wonder of the World.” Public voting is now open through September 30 at VirtualTourist.com, a leading travel research website and community that is part of TripAdvisor Media Group.

With numerous Tourism Boards, Chambers of Commerce and Visitor Bureaus sending in a nomination, the public is asked to vote for their favorite out of the more than 200 submissions.  Voters can visit www.virtualtourist.com to vote for a landmark (once per day).  The wonder with the most votes will be crowned the winner.  The winner will be featured in a national broadcast TV segment on a popular syndicated program as well as receive a massive media relations campaign push from VirtualTourist.

“It’s wonderful to have a nomination from every corner of the world so we are thrilled to receive Lake Tahoe as a nomination from Tahoe South,” said Giampiero Ambrosi, General Manager of VirtualTourist.com.  “As one of the best travel guide resources on the web, members and visitors to our site have been to almost every country in the world.  We are eager to see which landmark they will choose to be crowned the 8th Wonder of the World.”

To vote for Lake Tahoe for 8th Wonder of the World, visit www.virtualtourist.com (and scroll down!).

Tony Lyle is the Director of Tourism for Tahoe South. He recently went on a (virtual) whirlwind tour of the Seven Wonders of the World, and believes Lake Tahoe is a perfect addition to the list.
