As stated, you can choose from either mainland or private islands. The difference is that you pay Linden Lab (the owners&creators of Second Life) for mainland whereas you rent space from other residents on private island. Some residents also offer rentals on mainland too.

For the mainland if you are looking for themed areas there are:

Bay City - modern day city theme, various sized plots, strong community group (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bay%20City%20-%20Molesworth/128/128/20)

Nova Albion - modern day city theme, various sized plots (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Barcola/128/128/20)

Shermville - modern day suburbs theme, 512m2 plots, some have been merged into bigger plots (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shermerville%20Central/128/128/20)

Nautilus - ancient greek/roman style, 1024m2 plots, some boarder each other giving effectively larger plots, has a community group (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Nautilus%20-%20Yamm/128/128/20)

Chilbo - resident created community, strong community group (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Chilbo/128/128/20)

You do need to know that themed parts of the mainland tend to sell as a premium (like 10 to 50 times the price of unthemed mainland).

You can also get a "Linden Home". There are 4 themes (fantasy, tahoe, california, and japanese). This doesn't really fit your criteria because you are stuck with the house they provide and you can't expand. It's a 512m2 plot with a pre-fab house. The nice thing about the Linden Home is you apply for it and don't need to pay extra to get it (beyond having a premium account). (https://secondlife.com/land/lindenhomes/?lang=en-US)

You might be able to find rentals in the above areas. There are themed rentals all over the SL grid so search is your best option to find one you like. You don't need a premium account to rent.

I can't really list the private island options, there are simply too many. Some are just rentals, others have communities.

Hi again Theo. Note that if you go Premium, you are entiled to a 512 sqm plot free of fees on the mainland. The Premium membership plans are as follows:

 

Premium - Monthly USD 11.90 (USD 11.90 per month, billed monthly) ¤
Premium - Quarterly USD 26.91  (USD 8.98 per month, billed quarterly) ¤
Premium - Annual USD 86.11  (USD 7.18 per month, billed annually) ¤
 
By going premium, you will reveice a 1000 L$ bonus after 45 days and you will receive a weekly 300 L$ stipend every Tuesday.
Being Premium also entiles you to have a free Linden home (512 sqm, 117 prims). You can choose one on your dashboard from 4 different themed houses:

sorry, to be confused, but..... If i have a premium account and have not purchsed land or a Linden home, can I use that 512 (or tier?) to rent within an existing sim?  If so what's the mechanism to do it..... I kow that i could buy a Linden home (free-ish) and then rent, but am looking to use my premium account charges to rent land on an existing area....

help? thanks in advance....

 

I found this .....but does not really explain it ....:

"Premium accounts with 512m2 available tier qualify for a Linden Home.  For example, if you have a new premium account — you've just joined Second Life as a premium account or upgraded from a basic account — and haven't changed your land usage, then you have exactly 512m2 of available tier.  In addition, you can use tier in other situations, including buying land on the mainland or renting land on a private estate. 

See the Linden Home FAQ for information on how to check your available tier."

Hi sidvicous (lol, I love the name! didn't know the Sex Pistols were still around! :smileyvery-happy:).

Private sims owners WILL CHARGE you tier, even if it is not expensive, and some owners will be willing to set a purchase price for the land. The best is to find a 512 sqm plot on the mainland. As it is owned by LL, you won't be charged any tier as a Premium member. You will be able to put any house of your choice other than a Linden home within the limit of 117 prims (the prim count is directly related to the surface of your land).

Just keep in mind that on Linden Homes, the house is included to the land and is not deducted from the 117 prims allowance, which means you have more prims available for furniture, decor, etc, than on an empty plot where the house you will put will be deducted from your total prim count.
