Holiday season is a magical time of year. Warmth and holiday movies and family and a general, pervading sense of mirth make for a potion that can rejuvenate even the darkest spirits. But let's face it – capturing that holiday spirit can be tricky when you're in a place like sunny Florida, where the temperatures rarely dip below 50 degrees and snow seems more like something from a book rather than an actual meteorological event.

Don't fret, though. There are still plenty of ways to kindle your holiday spirit even in a state that's more at home in summer than winter, and we're here to share them.

The 90s were a simpler time. Clothes were baggier, music came on cassette tapes, Blockbuster still existed. If you're anything like the rest of us, you likely spend at least a few hours a day pining nostalgically for all things 1990s. Especially if you lived in Jacksonville, FL during the 90s. Because we can't help but revisit what feels like better days, join us as we tour things only 90s Jacksonville, FL residents will remember.

Sinking Quarters/Tokens into Games at Aladdin's Castle & Tilt

Thanks to barcades like Keg & Coin – an arcade bar in Jacksonville's Riverside neighborhood – and entertainment hotspots like Dave and Busters and Adventure Landing, there are still places you can get your arcade cabinet fix.

But there's nothing like the originals. Bereft of the other distractions – Keg & Coin is a bar first, arcade second, while Dave and Busters and Adventure Landing prominently feature an entire restaurant and a water park, respectively – these classic arcades existed purely for the endless joy of arcade games.

Many of us lost countless hours in Aladdin's Castle in the Orange Park mall. Parents shopping for boring stuff? Give us $5 and we'll be content basked in the warm glow of arcade cabinets for at least an hour. The same goes for Tilt at the Jacksonville Landing (itself an icon of the 90s that no longer exists). A few rounds of Street Fighter with friends at Tilt would be enough to make anyone's weekend.

Playing Mini-Golf with Rex at Goony Golf

DINOmite!! | Jacksonville beach, Jacksonville florida, Jacksonville fl

Before he became the orange sentinel of Beach Boulevard as we know him today, Rex, Jacksonville's famous T-Rex statue, presided over innumerable mini-golf games at Goony Golf. He was one of several, um, interesting obstacles and characters for which Goony Golf was known. For all its kitschy charm, Goony Golf felt like a staple of a fun Saturday afternoon.

And while the chain's Jacksonville location went extinct early in the 2000s, we still thankfully have Rex's beautiful mug to remind us of just how great things used to be.

Going to a Drive-In Movie

Playtime 3 Drive-In in Jacksonville, FL - Cinema Treasures

Going to a movie in a normal theater is a treat in itself, to be sure. But there was just something special about rolling down the windows, audio pouring out your radio, and watching a movie in the crisp night air.

In the 90s, Jax residents had a few options. They could pull up to the Playtime Drive-In off Blanding Boulevard or the Beaches Drive-In. These excellent and unique date destinations from the 90s sadly no longer exist. Playtime had its screens shut down for good in 2008, while Beaches Drive-In had its proverbial windows shuttered in 2003.

The Eats!

Feasting on the Wagon Wheel at Famous Amos. Ordering a Camel Rider on-the-go from The Sheik. A full chicken platter from Beach Road Chicken Dinners. Sipping on a Slush Puppie from the local Little Champ gas station. Barbecue from the short-lived Rumboggies (or maybe you just bought the sauce?).  Eating Chinese buffet in a dimly lit indoor dining area surrounded by koi ponds and bridges at Garden of Tiki.

We could go on, but we're making ourselves hungry.

The Malls!

What were you doing for fun in the 90s if you weren't at the mall? Maybe your commerce hub of choice was the Regency Square Mall, with its bustling storefronts and unique eateries at the food court. Or maybe you favored the newer atmosphere of the Avenues mall, which opened its doors in 1990.

If you lived in Orange Park, though, we know you loved the Orange Park Mall. Dozens of storefronts, a thriving food court, the aforementioned Aladdin's Castle, and, of course, the classic carousel.

The Sports!

jacksonville lizard kings - Google Search | Hockey logos, Kings hockey,  Football team logos

With no major league sports teams calling Jacksonville home in the early 90s, the city still had plenty of sports to get excited for. Baseball was never hotter than when the Jacksonville Suns lit up minor league ballparks (of course they still persist today, though rebranded as the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp).

Meanwhile, possibly the coolest local sports team in terms of uniforms, colors, logo, and name: The Jacksonville Lizard Kings. Sure, hockey doesn't have a strong foothold in Florida, but the Lizard Kings captured the hearts of many Jax residents on sheer coolness alone. Just look at that logo above! 

Then, of course, the big daddy arrives in 1993: Jacksonville gets its very own NFL franchise. The Jaguars were born, and a city fell in love with its team in teal. The 90s seasons were special for the Jags, too, as the team found immense success within its first three seasons playing in the formerly named Alltel Stadium.

Keep Max in Jax

Call Box: Maxwell House sign has been dripping since 1955 - News - The  Florida Times-Union - Jacksonville, FL

The intoxicating smell of coffee beans is familiar to anyone from Jacksonville thanks to the Maxwell House coffee plant located downtown. However, in the early 90s, the plant was nearly shutdown. The city launched a "Keep Max in Jax" campaign to convince Maxwell House to keep the plant open. It turned out to be wildly successful, not only saving the plant but motivating the company to double down in Jax with a multi-million-dollar expansion.

Classic Jax Radio Stations

The 90s had some outstanding radio stations for Jax residents. We spent many an afternoon cranking up the dial on all our favorite modern hits on 97.9 KISS FM. There was 93.3 Planet Radio for crunching new rock, while 104.5 pumped out all the classic rock your heart could desire. Then, of course, we had Cool 96.9, showering us all with "good times, great oldies."

There's an interesting feeling of civic pride you feel when you discover a celebrity you know and love is from your hometown. But for every well-known celeb from the Sunshine State, there's another handful of famous people from Florida you didn't know were from here.

The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, & More | Jacksonville, FL

Jacksonville may as well one of the capitals of Southern Rock given the number of legendary bands from the genre it's produced. Lynyrd Skynyrd of Freebird fame, The Allman Brothers Band, Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet, and .38 Special all hail from the Bold City. Rock bands continued to emerge from Jacksonville during the 90s and 2000s as well. You probably know Limp Bizkit hails from the First Coast, but so do Cold, Yellowcard, Evergreen Terrace, Shinedown, and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Maya Rudolph | Gainesville, FL

Gainesville was home to a famous rocker of its own (the late, great Tom Petty), but a well-known comedian also hails from Gator Country. Maya Rudolph was born in Gainesville in 1972. The famous actress was a prominent cast member on Saturday Night Live and has starred in several feature films, including Bridesmaids, Inherent Vice, and Big Hero 6.

Bob Ross | Daytona Beach, FL

America's favorite televised painter just so happens to be one of the most famous people from Daytona Beach, FL. That's right, Bob Ross was born in the city in 1942. He served 20 years in the Air Force before eventually becoming the honey-voiced master of zen with a paintbrush we all knew and loved.

Chipper Jones | DeLand, FL

The popular Atlanta Braves slugger hails from DeLand, FL. Chipper Jones also fits as a famous person from Daytona Beach, FL, too; he was raised in the Daytona Beach metro area. That being said, he got his start in baseball playing little league in the DeLand area.

Wayne Brady | Orlando, FL

Despite being born in Georgia, Wayne Brady is still one of the most famous people from Orlando, FL as he spent the majority of his young life in the Central Florida city. The likable improv comedian got his start with Orlando improv troupe SAK Comedy Club, where he developed skills that would catapult him into the national spotlight on TV shows like Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

Mandy Moore | Longwood, FL

Mandy Moore is one of the few famous people from Longwood, FL. Her family moved there when she was two years old, and it's where she spent the majority of her formative years. Mandy Moore got her start as a singer with a handful of chart-topping hits to her name before taking on roles as an actor later in her career.

Kate Upton | Melbourne, FL

The eye-catching model moved to Melbourne, FL as a kid in 1999, where she attended Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy and even competed nationally as a young equestrian. She later built her career as a head-turning model and actress.

Jim Morrison | Melbourne, FL

Jim Morrison is, without question, one of the most famous people from Florida. Hailing from Melbourne, FL, Morrison made his name as the front man for rock band The Doors. His vocals, lyrics, and memorable live performances have left a lasting impression not just on his fans, but on the entire rock genre for decades after his untimely passing.

It was just like any other day when you bought that lottery ticket. You played some random numbers and some significant ones – a loved one's birthday, maybe? – and then filed it away somewhere, certain it would be another waste of a couple dollars but hopeful it might not be. Then the stars aligned and every number you picked came up. Jackpot! Suddenly you're flush with money and that housing upgrade you've been wanting to make doesn't seem like such a distant dream anymore. With your newfound lottery winnings, you can start living like a celebrity in one of these Florida luxury homes.

4470 Worth Dr. W Jacksonville, FL 32207

This breathtaking estate stretches out across more than 11,000 square feet. The massive home is southern through and through, from its Georgian design to the southern gothic vibes given off by the surrounding greenery. Step inside and you'll feel like royalty as you traipse across marble floors to the home's centerpiece: the river room and its arched windows giving way to stunning river and garden views.

2483 Newfound Harbor Dr. Merritt Island, FL 32952

If untouched luxury is more appealing to you, then this newly constructed home might catch your eye. Your lottery moolah buys you direct access to Horti Point on Merritt Island, a blissful master suite with a spa-level master bath, an expansive kitchen with double islands, and so much more. Yeah, this is the high life.

7809 Palmilla Ct. Reunion, FL 34747

Your lottery winnings may not allow you to do something truly absurd like, say, purchase a section of Walt Disney World, but they can enable you to buy a home just a few miles away from the happiest place on Earth! That's not the only incredible feature to be found in this Mediterranean home, though; a gourmet kitchen, massive theater room big enough for the whole family, and golf course views also make this house a treasure.

335 Ponte Vedra Blvd. Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082

And now for the cream of the crop: this $10 million+ mansion right on the beach. If you asked someone to dream up a celebrity home, this is probably close to what they'd come up with. It features loggias, terraces, verandas, and balconies overlooking the pool and Atlantic Ocean. Exquisite details like reclaimed heart of pine floors, intricate moldings, and custom murals contribute to the home's one-of-a-kind feel. This is where paradise lives.

You can trace comic books all the way back to the Golden (1940s) and Silver (1950s) Ages, but there's no better time to jump in than now. Superhero movies and TV shows dominate the big and small screens alike, and even non-superhero comics have been adapted into mega-successful properties beyond the page (like The Walking Dead).

And with Free Comic Book Day just around the corner, you have the perfect excuse to head out to your local shop this weekend! If you're not sure where to start, worry not. We've got the best comic book shops in Jacksonville, FL right here.

Cosmic Comics 11018 Old St. Augustine Rd.

Whether you're looking to fill some holes in your collection or you're starting from scratch, Cosmic Comics is a great shop to visit. In addition to their long boxes full of back-issues, you'll find tons of great action figures, statues, and other collectibles.

Mythical Mountain 11570 San Jose Blvd., Suite 13

Mythical Mountain has quite the reputation around town. It was voted Jacksonville's 2nd Best Toy Store and Best Local Comic Book Store in 2018 in Folio Weekly's Best of Jax contest! That's thanks to its huge inventory of classic comics, new books, action figures, vintage collectibles, and the ever-present Funko® Pops.

Coliseum of Comics 2724 Park St. 746 3rd St. South

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="900"]store-photos-jax-19-900 Photo: Coliseum of Comics, Riverside[/caption]

Coliseum of Comics is the go-to for all things comics in both the Riverside and Beaches areas of Jacksonville. Comics new and old line the walls of this trendy shop alongside incredible statues and dozens of tabletop classics. You can even buy miniatures and other supplies for games like Warhammer 40,000.

Gotham City Limit 4195 Southside Blvd. #104

From Marvel and DC to Star Wars and Doctor Who, Gotham City Limit has something to appeal to nerds of all stripes. Check out the Star Wars pinball machine and classic Pac-Man cabinet when you first enter, or the shelves full of memorabilia from just about any popular franchise you can imagine. And if you can't find a specific comic or item on your list, let them know and they'll order it for you!

Altered Egos Comics & Games 400 Madison Avenue, Suite 106

The folks at Altered Egos don't try to hide their passion for comic books and the community that surrounds it. They'll gladly welcome you in whether you've been reading since the Golden Age or you're fresh out the movie theater and ready to learn more about the character you just watched on the big screen. You can even hang out with like-minded fans at one of the shop's weekly game meetups!

Action Toys & Collectibles 1429 Cassat Ave.

Unlike the other shops on this list, Action Toys & Collectibles isn't a destination for new comics. However, if you're a nostalgia hunter in the market for back-issues or throwback action figures, make a stop at Action Toys & Collectibles. And if you have old collectibles that need a new home, Action Toys is often in the market for new merch!

So join us as we post new content weekly covering a wide range of topics about all the places you call home. And should you wander into an area of the blog that doesn't have much content, worry not; we'll be fleshing out every section of The Watson Blog with the kind of rich content you want to read over the coming months.

Is there anything that says Christmas quite like getting the family dressed up and paying a visit to jolly old St. Nick? We don't think so, which is why we've compiled this list of where to see Santa Claus in Jacksonville and St. Augustine.

For most of us, October is noteworthy because it signifies a change to cooler weather, changing leaves (well, maybe not in Florida), and of course, Halloween. But there's another major reason to celebrate the coming of October, and it involves three of the greatest things on the planet: bread, tomato sauce, and cheese. That's right. October is National Pizza Month all across America. Luckily for all residents of Jacksonville's trendiest neighborhood, Riverside is home to some of the city's best pizza places. The next time you're in the mood for a good pie, head on down to one of these pizza havens for a tasty slice. Or maybe try all three and decide for yourself who has the best pizza in Riverside! 

V Pizza 1406 Hendricks Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32207

The "V" in V Pizza stands for Veloci or "quick" in Italian, but don't confuse quick for a lack of quality. With its towering ovens that reach 900 degrees, V Pizza strives to bring the authentic taste of true Italian pizza to Jacksonville. And they succeed. Try the house staple Pizza Bolognese and enjoy the succulent garlic and all-natural meatballs or go with a classic Pizza Margherita, made with fresh mozzarella and basil. Pizza isn't the only thing V excels at; grab an order of the oven-roasted chicken wings (pizza's greatest natural companion) and find out for yourself why V Pizza is so often lauded as having Jacksonville's best wings.

Carmines Pie House 2677 Forbes Street, Jacksonville, FL 32204

It's a debate as old as pizza itself: New York or Chicago style? Do you like a thin, cheese-dripping slice of New York pizza, or do you favor a hearty helping of Chicago pie, packed full of toppings and cheese? If your answer is the former, well, you certainly won't be upset eating at Carmines. But if Chicago style holds the key to your pizza-loving heart, then Carmines is heaven on earth. You can order any of their specialty pies – with classics like the Margherita alongside unique creations like a cheeseburger pizza – as deep dish mountains of dough, cheese, and robust toppings. Just like any true Chicagoan would have it.

Moon River Pizza 1176 Edgewood Avenue S, Jacksonville, FL 32205

Sometimes you just want a small slice of pizza or two like the ones you'd get from any of the well-known delivery chains. But sometimes, you just need a titanic slice that strikes fear in the hearts of flimsy paper plates everywhere. When that time comes, get yourself to Moon River Pizza. Try house specials like the T-Rex, which comes piled with enough meat to earn its prehistoric name, or build your own from their extensive list of toppings. No matter your choice, it'll only take a couple slices to leave you full and satisfied. But go ahead and order a full pie anyway. Besides, pizza's better the next day.

Halloween is almost among us, which means time is running out to get your spook on. If you aren't in the scary spirit yet, don't fret! There are still a few frightful attractions in Jacksonville that will fill you with fear just in time for All Hallows' Eve.
