The Number 2 Restroom in America

Tourists were coming to Lucas, Kansas to see the artwork. There were no public bathrooms in town. So the fine people of Lucas built one. Shaped like a toilet. With mosaics inside and out. And called it Bowl Plaza. And won second place in the 2014 World Toilet Day “America’s Best Restroom Contest.”

We had it to ourselves on a rainy Wednesday in March. In fact, I’m not sure I saw another person the entire time we were in Lucas.

Next door was the garden of “American Fork Art.”

There was more to see in Lucas, but none of it was open when we were there. We had a long way to go, and it was still raining hard. I’m guessing we’ll be back.
