I assume you meant the Mormon Temple in Utah, but either way I'd choose a different tourist attraction. There are Mormon Tabernacles and Temples in many states. Maybe delicate arch? Zion National Park? Bonneville Salt Flats? Park City? Or else be more specific and put "(Mormon)Temple Square."

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is based out of the Mormon Tabernacle next door to the temple. Its a real thing.

It is actually more commonly known as the "Mormon Tabernacle" instead of temple. At least to those of us who do not live in Utah.

The temple and the tabernacle are separate attractions. There are mormon temples everywhere, but the only mormon tabernacle is in Utah.
+1
level 38
Sep 23, 2018
That is not true. I use to live in Council Bluffs, Iowa and a Mormon tabernacle is a historic site in that city because it is where Brigham Young was deemed the leader of the Mormon faith. It isn't a Mormon temple but a Mormon tabernacle and that is in the state of Iowa right by Omaha Nebraska.

There are both a temple and a tabernacle on temple square in Salt Lake City. There are also both temples and tabernacles at various other locations. For example, there is a Mormon temple and a (separate) mormon tabernacle in Logan, Ut. There is a tabernacle, but no temple (though one is under construction) in Brigham City, Ut. There are also tabernacles in Paris, Idaho and Blackfoot, Idaho, as well as many other locations.

Apr 5, 2011
On these, it's best to choose the obvious answer - and the obvious answer for "Mormon Tabernacle" is UTAH - there also happens to be an Edgar Allen Poe House in New York, I've been there many times, but few people know about that one - the one they know about is the obvious one, in MARYLAND. No need to overthink these... in fact, had the answer to "Mormon Tabernacle" been any other state but Utah, the writer would have deservedly gotten howls from the rest of us, as no other state's Mormon Tabernacle is a major tourist draw.

Added Chimney Rock.

level 65
Sep 17, 2019
I had a problem with the inclusion of Chimney Rock (as there are multiple throughout the country, and as best as I can tell, the one in North Carolina receives more annual visitors), as well as the inclusion of Yellowstone, since it is in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Scotts Bluff National Monument would be clearly in Nebraska, and replacing Yellowstone with Old Faithful (which is only in Wyoming) or Grand Tetons would be more clear.

Prince should open up Paisley Park as a tourist attraction. Voyagers is a little too obscure and under the radar as a national park.

It's more than just a mall, Jerry. Over 500 stores, 50 restaurants, indoor theme parks, an aquarium, huge LEGO store, concerts, shows, gaming center, evening light shows, a Crayola store that costs $20 just to get in because of all the kids' activities - people can buy three-day passes for the mall experience. They have come up with many, many ways to part families from their money. Definitely a tourist attraction.

You might want to update your clue for Alaska, as Mt. McKinley is no more. The official designation of the mountain has been restored to its native name: Denali. It will still be a great clue though, as Denali is also (and has been for a very long time) the name of the national park which encloses it.

I was thinking "AK" was Arkansas the entire time, so that made me struggle for a while...finally figured it out when it was the only one left.

Great quiz. I had no idea the Pentagon was in Virginia. One that you could add is the Henry Doorly Zoo, in Nebraska. Also, I'm so used to seeing Denali that I had to look twice at Mt. McKinley.

Shouldn't Idaho and Montana be acceptable answers for Yellowstone since they are part of the park, not just Wyoming?

Feb 12, 2018
why not use all the states? for NH you could do Mt. Washington, Hampton Beach, White Mountain National Forest, Story Land, Strawberry Bank, Kancamagus Highway, Canobie Lake Park, Santa's Village, etc.

Sep 17, 2019
Agreed. As a non-New Hampshirite (Hampshirian?), I would think that Mt. Washington and White Mountain National Forest would be well enough known to include.

There is also a Edgar Allen Poe house in Philadelphia, maybe not as famous, but still a national historic site none the less. So could be confusing. Maybe Inner Harbor, naval academy, fort McHenry or Chesapeake bay would be a better clue for Maryland.
+1
level 65
Sep 17, 2019
Would definitely agree. There are multiple Poe houses, even if the one in Baltimore is most famous. I would agree with including Fort McHenry or the Naval Academy, though the Chesapeake Bay could also be Virginia.

Could probably do with a minute less time. I was able to get 36/36 despite not knowing many of them, based on guessing everything I hadn't eliminated for each one.

Sep 21, 2019
When I counted up and discovered I had been to 18 of these sites, at first I patted myself on the back for being so well-traveled. Upon further reflection, I realize what it really means is that I am a sucker for tourist traps!

(Yeah, I know not all these places are actually tourist traps, but there’s really not much arguing the trappiness of, say, Graceland, or Pike’s Peak.)

There is also a Edgar Allen Poe house in Richmond, VA. That is what I tried first.I think that one is a particularly confusing clue.
