World’s Money Exchange
Finally back from your month backpacking across Europe, once home you realize there is absolutely nowhere to trade in that few hundred dollars worth of coins you managed to pick up along the way. We’ve got your back, intrepid budget-traveler. World’s Money Exchange downtown is among only a handful of places in the city that will change out not only your paper notes but actual coins for good old American tender. You’re going to take a loss on the value, of course, but the alternative is dropping that shrapnel in tips on the way out of the country.
