NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- A pair of restrooms at the Nashville Zoo have been named America's Best Restroom in the Country, for floor to ceiling windows into exhibits.
Cleaning supply company Cintas has been holding the contest since 2002, collecting nominations from the public for three months from April to July, and putting the top ten up for a national vote from July to mid-October.
Both of the restrooms in the Zoo's "Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear" exhibit area were those submitted and selected by public vote as winners. Previous Coverage: Nashville Zoo competing for title of America's Best Restroom.
