We consider the initial value problem for a class of second order evolution equations that includes, among others, the 3D sine-Gordon equation with damping and the 3D Klein-Gordon type equations with damping. We show the existence of a set with finite fractal dimension that contains the global attractor and attracts all smooth solutions at an exponential rate.
