We've all been there. You need to find a bathroom, and quick. So, you run into a restaurant and sneak past the host, or buy something in a store,  so you can use the restroom. Then there's the places that say restrooms are only for staff.

Well, hats off to Ann Arbor.

The city is teaming up with a business called Throne Labs and installing eight free public bathrooms downtown and in some public parks, WDIV reports.

The facilities are spacious and clean. They're like fancier porta-johns that have wallpaper, a flushing toilet, a sink and urinal with running water, paper goods, women’s hygiene items and a baby changing station, the station reports.
