As a reporter for the SL Enquirer and as a Second Life Resident who enjoys exploring the virtual world I thought I’d share some of my favourite Christmas getaways.
The first on my list is "Winter Holiday Village”, a picturesque and vast sim with plenty of activities and mountain top chalets that double as stores where you can buy Christmas decorations that range from Christmas trees and snowmen, to fully decorated diner and romantic Christmas chimney sets.
Described in it’s search profile as a "Country winter wonderland. Skiing, sledding skating, polar bears & penguins, too! Santa & Mrs. Claus in residence LIVE! Come spend your winter holidays with us. Romantic & family oriented. Our 9th year bringing you this Holiday sim. Merry Christmas”, this sim does not disappoint.
In addition to the mountain top chalet shopping is a horse drawn carriage that provides a tour of the sim and a frozen river where Second Life residents can skate to their hearts content.
And when your done with exploring there are plenty of gazebos and little hideaways were you can curl up with a steaming cup of chocolate while relaxing to music that fits the seasonal theme with Christmas classics sung by crooners that include Dean Martin, Bruce Springsteen, Seal and Whitney Houston.
This is a classy family friendly sim that rates five out of five stars.
