Andrew Harper, the writer of the Yahoo piece, admitted that his list was free of obvious choices like the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge, so take that for what you will. At any rate, ranking behind just between the Four Seasons restaurant in New York at number six and San Marino, California's Huntington Gardens is Houston's own Rothko Chapel at number seven.

Might not the bleak ambience of Rothko's 14 black paintings cause a few travelers to follow Rothko into a suicide's grave, and thus miss out on the final three places on their bucket list?
