The Roller Rink, The Mall And Other Places Where You Really Grew Up
Do you remember these hang out spots from back in the day? Whether you’re from the east coast, west coast, or third coast, these are the places where you really grew up.
The Roller Rink
Remember when you could skate all day and not get tired?
The Movie Theater
For free, because that one cousin had the hook up.
Your Local Six Flags
Get dropped off when it opens, get picked up when it closes.
The Beauty Shop
Whether you were waiting on your mama’s appointment or yours, it was the best place to eavesdrop on grownup gossip.
At The Pool
Skin black, red hair, don’t care!
Sunday School, children’s church, youth choir, praise dancers, prayer team, step team…
Hanging Out After School
It’s where all the fun happened.
On Your Bike
You could go anywhere — as long as you were back by the time the street lights came on.
That One Friend’s House
Because her mom had better snacks and fewer rules.
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it…
It’s where you go to collect shoes and phone numbers.
For everyone who’s town was too small for a mall.
At The Huxtables’ House
Or at least you watched enough episodes to make it feel that way.
