This is a guide to the diversity of Second Life, with a particular emphasis on locations of interest to new residents. The emphasis is on non-commercial, unusual locations in Second Life, or ones of particular value to new residents (such as excellent sources of free items). To avoid excessive spam content, it should not be a comprehensive listing of every store and mall in Second Life.

Listing Format

  • To make this easy to skim through, descriptions should generally target to be no more than 5 words long.
  • Locations in each section should be in alphabetical order.
  • PG destinations should be labelled "(PG)". Destinations requiring age verification should be labelled "(AV)"
  • Example:
Hot Tamale: Hot springs (AV)
Marvin Gardens: Beautiful gardens (PG)
Park Place: Scenic cliffs

Non-commercial Destinations

Regions

Regions in the non-commercial section must be free to visit. They may however have venues in them that charge for items or activities

Visually inspired by real world locations

  • Nagaya/Little Kyoto: Japanese region (PG) (SLurl)

Visually inspired by fiction

Inspired by movies, books, etc

  • Little Mos Eisley: Star Wars region (SLurl)
  • Transylvania: Vampire region (SLurl)
  • United Federation Starfleet: Star Trek region (SLurl)

Visually inspired by historical periods

  • Avilion Grove: European castle, formal dancing (SLurl)

Miscellaneous visually themed

Regions with a strong visual theme that don't fit into other visual categories. For instance, a tropical paradise region that isn't imitating some specific real-world location.

  • Acropolis Gardens: Tropical paradise (SLurl)

Venues

Venues in the non-commercial section must be free to enter. They must be primarily oriented towards free offerings, however a few incidental paid offerings should not constitute immediate disqualification. If there are items available for acquisition in the venue or activities to do, the overwhelming majority of the offerings (90% or more) must be free. For instance, a venue offering 85 free items, 5 free activities, 5 cheap items, and 5 cheap activities, could qualify as non-commercial. Venues that comply with this rule may still be moved to the commercial section, or deleted. For instance, a venue that offers 9 simple, commonly available Notecards for free, and 1 airplane that costs L$3,000 is 90% free, but it's still actually a commercial venue.

Commercial Destinations

Venues

To avoid excessive spam content, commercial locations should only be listed if they offer something that is not readily available in Second Life. A typical clothing store does not belong in this article. On the other hand, a store that specializes in Classical Ottoman Empire military clothing and accessories is probably pretty rare, and so belongs in this article.
