If nothing else, a stop in Lucas is warranted for a bathroom break alone. Bowl Plaza is the result of the locals’ four-year dream to have a restroom downtown. In true Lucas fashion, the building is shaped like a toilet tank, which you enter through a door that looks like a toilet lid. Inside, the walls are covered with jeweled mosaics from floor to ceiling.
Leave I-70 for Lucas at exit 206 and then twist along a picturesque 18-mile highway past Wilson Lake.
