Over the last couple of weeks, I've shared with you some of the sights of NY Health Scapes, and this week, I conclude that journey with--yep, even more great things you can do there!
As I mentioned in previous articles [article #1 and article #2], NY Health Scapes is made up of 20 sims that feature not only wonderful SL versions of New York landscapes, but also great activities and sites for visitors and residents to enjoy.
There's no way I could ever tell you of every attraction unless I spent a good year or more traveling all the sims of NY Health Scapes, which is why I suggest you check out all the Travel Guides for yourself.
But just to entice you even more, I wanted to spotlight places you should check outnow.
One of the first places I stopped at is the Sea Crystal Carousel in WaterWay New York.
Not only is it beautiful on the outside, as you can see a steady down-flow of sea life circling about the place, but also, once inside, you can actually ride the "water" animals on the carousel.
The Sea Crystal Carousel is a short walk away from Battery Park, where you can get lost in the labyrinth or take in some amazing sculptures and beautiful art along the water's edge. Needless to say, I bought a lot of art and now need to find more walls to place the art for all to see!
One of the more tranquil experiences for me was taking a boat ride around the sims. There's something pretty magnificent about getting in a boat and taking a longride through multiple sims, seeing their designs and climates. The cool part was being able to see more bridges. Each bridge, it seems, is unique unto itself, and no matter where you turn on the 20 sims, there is one for you to marvel. After checking out the boats near Battery Park and taking in more of the fabulous art work, I was able to take a boat ride [here].
If you're not up for the scenic boat ride and want a quicker transit, you can hail a taxinear this location, too.
One of the funniest times I had at NY Health Scapes had to be my trip to NorthCountry New York. If you like your climate chilly with snow, then this is definitely the spot for you to travel. There is a cool villa and a ski lift that takes you to the top of the hill for a ski run. And remember, this is NY Health Scapes, so of course, they would provide a little entertainment that would allow you to see their medical "services" in action.
At the top of the hill, where the ski run is located, you have the option of donning ski gear and taking a cool run down the hill--or, you can select their "accident" run in which while skiing you have an accident and their medical personnel comes to whisk you to the hospital.
Guess which one I chose?
Despite my embarrassing crash, I was well enough to leave the hospital on my own, and guess what I did? Yep, went right back to the top of the hill--this time, I took the less painful route!
If you need to add a little more fun and adventure to your time here on the grid, youmust check out all that NY Health Scapes has to offer. Who knows, I might find you at the emergency room, too. My skiing skills haven't gotten much better.
