Nashville Zoo’s Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear women’s restroom and Entry Village’s men’s restroom have been named America’s Best Restrooms by Cintas. Expedition Peru’s restroom is the home to the Zoo’s family of six cotton-top tamarins, a critically endangered primate species from South America and Entry Village’s restroom (pictured above) is home to a Boelen’s python.

Cintas’ America’s Best Restroom Contest®, which has been around for 18 years, selects the winner based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements.

Jianna Restaurant in Greeneville, SC was the only other Southern destination on the Finalists list.

We’re thrilled to earn the title of America’s Best Restroom,” said Rick Schwartz, President and CEO of the Nashville Zoo. “As one of the top tourist attractions in Tennessee, we saw our restrooms as an opportunity to educate visitors and allow their trip to the zoo to continue even during a bathroom break. We wanted our restrooms to create dialogue and conversation, and it worked better than expected.”
