Wow! I was little in the 90s and I remember most of that stuff:
The Arches were where Common Cents and Holiday Inn are now. There used to be NOTHING past the hospital and everyone thought it was stupid to build the hospital so far from downtown.
We used to go to KP Drive In for french fries after Harney League games.
My favorite dolphin at Marine Life was Josie and after it was torn down the rubble was there for years.
$1 movie night at The Elks was AWESOME!!! It only had one screen and it wasn't stadium seating.
My first concert was 98 Degrees in 1998 on Halloween!
I used to cruise 8th freshman year, then gas got higher.
Sooper Dooper had THE BEST fried chicken in town.
Canyon Lake Park never had the boardwalk or gazebo island.
You could slide the spillway at Canyon Lake.
Fizz Kids was the best place to drop off kids for the day.
Qzar had laser tag in the mall.
Qdoba was called Zteca.
WalMart was where Sam's is now.
Schlotzsky's was on West Main now it's on LaCrosse.
Fjord's was THE ice cream parlor to go to.
The hospital was just the tower and there was NOTHING else around it.
There was no Southwest Middle School or Corral Drive Elementary.
RAPID SKATE was still open!
Roosevelt Pool was where the ice rink is now and it was the only pool on the eastside.
Downtown Radisson was Hilton.
God there's so many more...
