Looking for something to do over the weekend? Scope out some of these activities with your friends. Don't forget to check our Recently Added category to see all the latest additions to the Second Life Destination Guide!

Are you interested in some roleplaying? Hit up The Wastelands, which we featured earlier this week on Spotlight. They are a post-apocalyptic community celebrating 15 years in Second Life this weekend. Their schedule of events is bursting with all sorts of live music, DJ sets, combat & sports, roleplay sessions, giveaways, storytelling, and more! Visit for 3 days of activities this weekend! 

 

Do you prefer more fantasy roleplaying games? You might want to see The Thought Spike, a new RPG destination.

 

Perhaps you'd like to play a shooting game, do some quests, or pick up a passport and get it stamped as you travel the grid? Explore some of these Gaming destinations!

 

 

 

Do virtual roller coasters, bumper cars, and ferris wheels bring back fun childhood memories? Hit up these amusement parks!

 

 

Do you love the water and want to try out virtual surfing, diving, or sailing? Teleport over to these water sports destinations!

 

 

 

Are you more of a party animal and would rather go dancing in a crowded room with other music lovers? Peak Lounge is one of the most popular places in Second Life. We featured it a few weeks ago alongside other popular clubs that have DJs playing 24/7. You can also check out the Music category for even more clubs with all kinds of themes and live music events!

 

Or perhaps you'd like to do some quiet reflection and meditate this weekend? Enjoy the soothing nature sounds at Peaceful Moments, meditate, and find peace.  

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy new year and welcome to the first Second Life Destination Guide highlights post for 2022! I thought for the new year since people are just wrapping up the winter attractions, I'd focus on some of the Linden Lab maintained destinations on the guide. We even have a new category for them called Linden Destinations. We've slowly been adding all the different areas that the moles have been working on, including the community areas around the Linden Home regions in Bellisseria. They are all open to the public, even if you are not a Bellisseria Resident. You can also head over to Portal Park and complete some of the quests and find new games and adventures!

This will be the final Destination Guide highlights post for this year. I hope to continue them in the new year, with weekly updates on what's new on the Second Life Destination Guide. In the year 2022, we hope to give the Destination Guide a much-needed facelift and possibly a few other changes, which I am really looking forward to! 

So far this December we've shared many different winter-themed destinations in videos and blog posts. In this final blog post, I am going to share a few more of my favorites that I don't believe have been featured as of yet. Don't forget to check out the full Winter Attractions category as we have over 100 destinations waiting for you to explore!

Have a safe and special holiday season with your loved ones in both the physical and virtual worlds!

A Christmas Wish.jpg
Pictured: A Christmas Wish

On Lab Gab today, Tara Linden and I went to several different winter destinations using the Destination Guide. I thought in today's blog post I would share all the destinations we went to. You can watch today's episode of Lab Gab on YouTube.

 

We started the show at the 2021 Shop & Hop showing off some of the goodies we picked up there. Then we headed over to the Swaginator Hunt, completed the hunt, and walked around with our Linden Bear winnings. After that, we went to Winter Wonderland and showed how to use the snow pistols so you will be all set for the Linden & Resident Snowball fight next week. Then we bounced around using the Destination Guide to different regions where we went skiing, horseback riding, and just enjoying the wonderful atmosphere of the beautiful locations, all listed in the Winter Attractions category on the Destination Guide. These are the destinations we teleported around to:

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ended our show at the SL Christmas Expo where Santa Patch and his elves were setting up for their photo session!

 

There are so many more winter attractions on the Destination Guide this season with lots of activities and opportunities for you to spend some quality time with your virtual friends and family. We're doing our best to list them as fast as we can and trying to rotate as many as we can through the Editors' Picks and Featured Events categories. Don't forget to also check our Recently Added category to see all the latest additions to the Second Life Destination Guide!

This may be the final weekend you are able to visit some of the amazing spooky locations in the Haunted category on the Destination Guide. I have featured many throughout the month and Tara Linden and I also went through a couple of haunted experiences in today's Lab Gab.  

Here are destinations that I haven't featured in a highlights blog post yet this year. A lot of these are closing right after Halloween, so visit soon. The remaining ones will stay in the Haunted category until they close. Happy Halloween!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An older bonus destination that's not in the Haunted category, but can be just as haunting to those that get trapped there!

Boystown Haunted Experience.jpg

We have over 100 Haunted Destinations currently on the Second Life Destination Guide, and there will be more coming over the next couple of weeks. There are also some wonderful events going on that we wanted to highlight today.

I went through the Boystown Haunted Experience today and it is incredible! I screamed several times, so many jump-scares! It's kind of like an escape room idea, and I made it to the end! Check out their trailer on YouTube.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tradition of a toy bear that may be given out by Linden Lab employees, and our Mole contractors, to Second Life Residents began in early 2005. The idea was simple: Anyone can ask a Linden or Mole for their bear. Each bear is personally crafted by an individual Linden or Mole, adding their own unique twist, and in some cases can be one of their first experiences in building. A special thank you to Claire Atheria & Maryposa Papillon (Maryposa Paine) for putting the Bear Castle together with 450+ Linden and Mole Bears!

Last month we made a few updates to the Destinations Floater in the viewer. In an effort to make it more newcomer friendly, we’ve made a few updates to our policy which pertains specifically to those listings that are chosen for Editors’ Picks and the Floater in the viewer. You can see all of the updates on the “About the Second Life Destination Guide” page.

If you find any listings in the Destinations floater that are not newcomer friendly, please do drop us a line at editor@lindenlab.com and let us know. We are trying our best to check it every few weeks. We also encourage those that do get chosen to be featured in Editors’ Picks or the floater to please let us know, via email, if they decide to change their region's settings. 

Do keep in mind that the only category we are not able to maintain, change or update is the “What’s Hot Now” category. That category is automatic and randomly showcases any of the entries on the Destination Guide that currently have 20 to 30 avatars in it. 

The rest of the categories in the floater, and Editors’ Picks, are the only two places we are trying to maintain a stricter policy, so please do visit the web version of the Destination Guide as there are many more beautiful regions to explore. This week we added over 60, check them all out in the Recently Added category, which is rotated weekly with all the latest listings.

Out of the 60 that were added in the last week, here are 10 that we wanted to highlight:
