The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum gained national attention last year when it was named the country's "Best Botanical Garden," now it's looking to repeat.

The stunning gardens in Chaska have been named once again in USA Today's 2018 10Best Readers' Choice contest.

The winner is determined by a public vote, and arboretum officials aren't satisfied with winning the contest once – they're going for it again.

That's why it's asking Minnesotans to vote for the 1,200-acre attraction – the largest public garden in the Upper Midwest – on the 10Best website.

The Arboretum is currently in 4th place as of Tuesday evening, with voting continuing until this coming Monday.

People are able to vote once a day.
