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 almost 300 submissions from around the World. Voters can visit www.virtualtourist.com to vote for Ironbridge and have until September 30 to do so.
