    Cellar Dwellar (@ Valley Vineyards, Morrow)

    Listermann/Triple Digit (Norwood)

    50 West

    Blank Slate

    Yellow Springs (Which is nicely convenient to another site worth seeing in Ohio... Clifton Gorge)

    I'll make note of those for my next trip

    I'll add one more for Oregon

    Ft. George Brewery

    I was going to post, but I didn't want to put to shame all the other states' lists.

    Any one of the truly fantastic Carolina (Mustard Based BBQ joints, accept for Maurice's)

    Liberty Bridge and Falls Park in Greenville

    Cowpens/Kings Mountain/Old Ninety-Six Battlefields (SC was where the Revolutionary War was won toward the end)

    Sorry, that was slightly insulting. I should have included Green Township.

    Re: What would be the "Seven Wonders" of your State?

    Guess I'll take a shot at Missouri's "wonders". Actually, although it has its drawbacks, Missouri does have a varied, rich and well developed park system.

    Natural Wonders
    1. Ozark National Scenic Riverway - including the magnificent Jacks Fork, Buffalo and Current Rivers. Karst caves, springs, whitewater, virgin forests and deep hollers. Incredible camping, canoeing, rafting, fishing and hunting.

    2. Johnson's Shut Ins - near Saint Louis. Open again after being devastated by the Taum Sauk Reservoir rupture and flood.

    3. Elephant Rocks - Gigantic tumbled boulders look something like a mini badlands dropped into the Ozark forests.

    4. Grand Falls - On Shoal Creek in SW Missouri. Not so much for its waterfall which is magnificent, yet pales in comparison to other famous falls, but the whole natural beauty of the area.

    5. Mingo and Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuges - Wildlife and bird lovers: nearly every bird that flies north-south can be seen here, flocks in the sky darkening millions in spring. Eagles, waterfowl of every type. Never developed, untouched riparian habitats.

    6. Onondaga Cave - In a state of 5,500 caves this is the one that grabs visitors. Rivals Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

    7. Mina Sauk Falls - Cascades down Taum Sauk Mountain, Missouri's highest point. Visit in the wet seasons of spring and late fall if you want to see it in its torrential glory. The Ozark Trail passes by and you can swim in the pool created by the falls and shower in its spray.

    Man made wonders:

    1. The Gateway Arch
    2. Jamesport - Amish community in NW Missouri
    3. Shepherd of the Hills Theater and Branson
    4. Route 66, the Main Street of America, now part of I44. 317 miles of yesteryear with various sites dedicated to the old roadway along the trip
    5. Katy Trail - like bicycling? Bike from Saint Louis to KC or vice versa, 225 miles through a number of small comunities and historic sites.
    6. Bonne Terre Mine - worlds largest underground lake, submerged when the mine was abandoned. Scuba diving Bonne Terre is one of National Geo's 100 greatest adventures.
    7. Herman - German immigrants settled and became vintners. The town has done great job of restoration and maintaining its Rhineland flavor. Plus 4 star restaurants and great wine, antique shoppes, museums and the feeling you've gone back in time 100 or so years. What's most impressive about the last is that it is the way the residents live, not some artifice to attract visitors.
    No - I am not from State Farm!
