CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Nevadans have nominated and begun the elimination process to name their favorite attractions in the Silver State.

The “Discover Your Nevada” campaign is down to the final two contenders in each tourism territory.

Locals’ favorite spots were nominated as “Nevada Treasures” in each of the state’s six tourism territories. Three rounds of voting will narrow the choices down to the No. 1 treasure in each territory.

The finalists are:
Cowboy Country: Safe Haven Rescue Zoo and The Star Hotel Basque Restaurant
Reno-Tahoe Territory: Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park and the Wilbur D. May Center
Indian Territory: The Lost City Museum and Pyramid Lake
Pony Express Territory: Great Basin National Park and the Nevada Northern Railway
Nevada Silver Trails: Belmont Courthouse and the Pahrump Valley Winery
Las Vegas Territory: The Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery and the Nevada State Museum

The competition began on July 3 with a nomination period followed by two rounds of voting. Then a final round of voting began today and ends at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, and will deliver the winners. Each treasure will receive a commemorative plaque and be featured in future NCOT promotions.

Go to www.facebook.com/TravelNevada and click on the “Discover Your Nevada” tile at the top of the page. One vote may be cast per territory in 24 hours, so visitors are encouraged to vote daily and rally support for their favorite treasure.
