Want A Fun Road Trip Idea? Tour Colorado On A Penny Squishin’ Mission

Looking for something different to try this summer? Grab a roll of pennies, put the kids in the car and hit the road on the quest for places you can smash those pennies into souvenirs and see the state at the same time. From Leadville to La Junta and Frisco to Fruita – there are dozens of machines all over Colorado that press pennies into elongated shapes with a commemorative design.

Journalist Matt Masich has made just such a “squishin’ mission” and learned about collecting elongated pennies.

Listen to his conversation with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner on the Colorado Matters podcast.
