Pass Go And Collect $200

How many of us remember playing the game of Monopoly at least once in our lives? It was a traditional Christmas present. I remember marathon Monopoly matches in college and at Scout camp. Most of us have probably owned the board game at least once - maybe even a deluxe version..

It's no small wonder. Monopoly is celebrating it's 75th birthday. It is based on the streets and neighborhoods of Atlantic City, New Jersey because the creator wanted to commemorate the city.

Let's all pass GO as a tribute or take a ride on the Reading - or maybe spend a night in a hotel on Boardwalk or Park Place.

This is a real part of Americana.
