Where To Shake Things Up Old School Style

Where To Shake Things Up Old School Style

Image title

With all of today’s fancy phones, electronic gizmos and flat screen whatevers, it’s easy to forget that there was a time when we didn’t need all of that to be entertained. Believe it or not, folks used to find entertainment in roller skating rinks, ice rinks, drive-in movie theaters, miniature golf courses and bowling alleys and some still do!  This weekend, why not take a trip down memory lane (even if you’re too young to remember) and have some fun the old-fashioned way. Just be aware that while some places appear to have been frozen in time, their prices have not.
