We’ve passed the sign a dozen times and its always good for a laugh. I’ve snapped a photo of the large billboard and thought to myself that I’d have to stop there someday and visit a town with so much humor…the day arrived.
Uranus, Missouri, often called simply “Uranus,” is a tourist attraction town located in the rural area of Pulaski County, Missouri, along Route 66. Uranus’s businesses include a Fudge Factory and General Store, Chicken Bones Party Bar and Grill, Fort Uranus, Escape Uranus, Skin City Tattoo & Piercing Studio, Uranus Axehole, Combat Uranus, the Sideshow Museum and the Uranus Brewing Company. All the business in this town are owned by a single individual, Louie Keen, who proclaims himself the “Mayor of Uranus”. While Uranus, Missouri has 25 residents, the commercial development is unincorporated and even proclaims on the entrance sign, “It’s Not a Town, It’s a Destination.”
Caught myself taking some pretty great Photos of / in, Bought fudge in, Had a drink in, Toured and went shopping …all in Uranus!
You can even find Uranus on Facebook! (Hasn’t everyone?)
Thank You For Visiting Uranus!
As the Mayor of Uranus for the past 16 years, it has been my pleasure to watch Uranus grow into the Entertainment Hub of the Ozarks. If there is anything that I can do to help you find Uranus or make Uranus Bigger and Better, let me know.
-The Honorable Mayor Louie Keen
