Would You Visit an Offbeat Historical Landmark?


Tourists flock to Mt. Rushmore, the Washington Monument and Civil War landmarks like Fort Fisher in North Carolina each year, but would you consider seeking out a more salacious historical site?

The restroom at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport where Republican Sen. Larry Craig was arrested in a sex sting is losing its appeal as a tourist stop, according to an official.

Craig was accused of soliciting sex in the bathroom in June 2007 and pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct later that Summer. Word is one person offered to buy the restroom stall for $5,000, but airport officials say they don't sell fixtures for novelty purposes. The men's room is described as the "busiest restroom at Minneapolis-St. Paul International," and is in the middle of the main thoroughfare, but no doubt many travelers popped in after hearing Craig's tale.
