This Labor Day weekend, we tried to take advantage of all our favorite summer activities that were winding down for the season. We saw a movie at the drive-in theater, went swimming at the pool, and headed up to the Manitou Springs' Penny Arcade. The arcade is one of my favorite places in Colorado, and I love sharing it with my own children. The arcade is filled with antique pinball machines, skeeball, derby races, peepshows, 1950s Love Testers, photo booths, and plenty of automated fortune tellers to keep us entertained all day. A lot of the really old games cost between a penny and a dime, hence the name "Penny Arcade." You can also buy fresh salt water taffy, cotton candy, and chocolate truffles.
