It is clearly Spring outside the office windows here at Linden Lab. Blue skies, crisp air and sunny sidewalks, and everyone seems to have a bounce in their step that indicates the shedding of winter memories and the excitement of a new season upon us.

While it can be Spring eternal  in virtual life — there’s no doubt that Residents love to do it up in full festive glory. Egg hunts and pretty pastels are around every corner, and the sweaters and coats of last week are replaced with tank tops and cardigans.

Our Destination Guide knows just where the latest adventures await in Second Life. So swap out those boots for an open-toe shoe and hit the grid with a bounce like you mean it!

If your Second Life creation is missing from the Destination Guide, drop us a note at editor@lindenlab.com  or submit your spot via form. 

Don’t forget to take loads of pics and share them on our official Second Life Flickr. We select “Pic of the Day” from that group.

Now — let’s jump down that rabbit hole and see what awaits!

As we head into the middle of March,  and the green of St. Patrick’s Day fades the folks over at the Second Life Destination Guide have made sure that the good times roll on! They’ve spent all week finding some of the best events and places on the grid for you to visit so that you don’t have to! Of course, the guide is chock full of many wonderful places, so you may want to put together your own list of Destination Guide Highlights and share it with us @SecondLife on twitter!

If you’ve got politics on your mind and are looking for like-minded people to chat with, be sure to check out the politics category of the Destination Guide.

Wherever you go be sure to take lots of great pics and share them on our Official Second Life Flickr page!

Whiskey City

The clouds hang low over the city. The denizens move against the wind …the rain to get to their jobs …to their homes. The low life lurks in the shadows. One hurries down the street, trying not to glance down the alley. You hope what’s down there stays there … and doesn’t come out. Urban roleplay community with DCS combat. Part of the Smash sims

Once again, the Destination Guide editorial team pored through countless submissions for all sorts of interesting and varied locations. Quite a few events as well, truth be told. Much like last time, we wanted to highlight things that caught our attention. They could have a higher than usual level of polish, a silly sense of humor or just be plain fun to wander through. That said, let’s get to it.


This time around, we’re bringing you some more adventures than usual. Prepare to delve into the jungle and find a tropical warrior’s final treasure, seek out demonic eggs to uncover the death of a beloved fairy tale egg, or dive into the depths of mind-shattering madness in a dark and dreary carnival. For those of you looking for something a little more light-hearted, we’ve also got a club ripped straight out of Miami (by way of Dubai), procedurally generated Mandelbrot patterns and a soothing, summertime Siberia. As always, few things are as fun as sharing new places, so show your creative side and make something cool.




3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art

The 3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art exhibit showcases sim-wide variations of Mandelbrot fractal art. The spectacular script-controlled fractal landscape changes many times throughout the day.

If you who haven’t yet heard, we’re coming up on the Second Life’s tenth birthday, SL10B as we’ve affectionately dubbed it. While we’ve got a whole slew of celebrations planned, we’d really like to see how people across Second Life celebrate 10 years on the grid. So if you have an awesome place or a cool event, share your creations and we’ll make this a party for the ages.

Since we can’t stop thinking about SL10B, we figured we’d stick with the theme of parties and celebrations. For those of you who prefer something quiet and intimate, we’re bringing you haute cuisine in a waterfront restaurant. For the more raucous, be sure to check out a neon kaleidoscope of a dance club and a music and art venue carved out of a subterranean cave. A literal rock cave, if you will. And if you feel like taking a break, why not take a walk through a soothing park or an exquisite Italian town?

Each week, the Destination Guide editorial team reviews dozens upon dozens of new locations and events - last time we blogged, we recommended a few interesting destinations we thought you’d enjoy. Once again, we’d like to highlight a few of the more interesting new submissions that stood out to our editorial team.

Recently, we’ve had a glut of great installation art. These evocative installations carry a variety of themes: from desolation and mortality to innocence in the face of a giant fish. Rounding things out are a night club hiding in a library, and a charity for at-risk youth. If you're looking for new places to explore in Second Life, you may want to check out some of these regions, or join the fun and submit your own.



The Arrival

The Arrival: In this art installation from Rose Borchovski, you'll venture to an emotional and immersive art-landscape about The Arrival of the Fish, the next chapter of The Susa Bubbles adventures. In this installation, the Susa Bubbles caught a fish, while they admire how big it is, the fish dies. They wonder if they are to blame. Or search for your own explanation...
