7 Wonders Of Illinois

CHICAGO (AP) -- The state Bureau of Tourism has released the results of its "Seven Wonders of Illinois" promotion.

There's one wonder for each of seven regions.

They include: Starved Rock State Park in Utica; Allerton Park and Retreat Center in Monticello; Black Hawk State Historic Site in Rock Island and Rend Lake in Benton.

Also making the list are: Wrigley Field in Chicago; the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette; and the Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway, following a 33-mile strip of river through Alton, Grafton, Hartford and Elsah.

There were no rules for what could be a wonder. But Jan Kostner, the bureau's deputy director, says voters seemed inclined toward natural wonders.
