50 First Dates – #11 to #20

A couple of quick housekeeping items:

1) Yes I am posting this on both Freestate and AWNM, because it is a lot of work, and I figured I would provide it for the largest audience as possible. I won’t do that very often, but I reserve the right to do it at times, so I apologize if you follow both blogs for the repeat.

2) I did link the title of each pic with a slurl so you can tp directly to the location to try it out. It sort of blends into the overall color scheme, and I did get a question about slurls.

3) I promised to try to do 10 a day, so that is still the plan but I will be on vacation from Friday through Sunday this week, so that might get in the way, but you just have to deal! 🙂

Alrighty then as promised here is round two of the 50 first dates exercise.

#11 Innisfree Romantic Park

This is actually a great park with a pool, dancing area, and lots of special couple sit options that are scattered throughout the build. It is very scenic and has trails that you can skate or bike to go along with the fun atmosphere.

#12 Art in the Park

This one is…. drumroll please…. art in the park. duh! lol You can roam the sidewalks and see different exhibits by various artists. I think that many of the pieces are for sale, including a few limited editions. Not the best art I have seen in SL, but is still a fun diversion, and provides a great way to discuss what you like/don’t like about various pieces.

#13 Avilion Courtyard Area

If you go to Avilion and only spend time in the ballroom, then you are missing out on some great places to hang out. This is one of them, which is around the castle to the side just beyond the hedge maze. (The hedge maze itself might get its own slot, if I have trouble towards the end hitting 50.. haha!) There are several scenic dancing spots around the campfire or in the gazebo overlooking the waterfalls. Also, be sure to have your particles on so you can enjoy the prettiful light show.

#14 Scoutlounge Beach Club

If you are in the mood for a club experience, why not combine it with a beautiful beachfront build (my pic doesn’t do it justice). The Scoutlounge plays some great house music, but you will want to check the event listings, because most of the shows are geared around European time zones. Even if there is no event going, the stream is usually pretty good, and it provides a nice spot to kick back and relax.

#15 La Reve

A beautifully landscaped sim with incredible sculptures and lighting effects. Where else can you sail around some incredible visuals on a bed? Unfortunately the bed isn’t sex gen, and you can’t sit in a couple’s cuddle position, but it is still a great place to take a date and go explore.

#16 Moana’Ina Beach @ Weather Island

Surf’s up with some MONSTER waves at this great sim sponsored by the Weather Channel. There are free surf boards you can use, and lots of waves to start working on your skills. Before long you can join the SLSA and start entering some real surfing competitions.

#17 Apollo Gardens

Unless you are brand new to SL, I would find it hard to believe that you haven’t been to Apollo Gardens at some point, as it is one of the oldest most beautifully landscaped sims. It provides a lot of room to go exploring, as well as many couple sits throughout the park. The one downside to this place, is that it IS so well known, that almost every time I go here (including the 5 minutes to take this pic) someone ends up tp’ing in right on top of you because they logged out in your spot. So keep in mind that there is a good chance of a cock block at any point when using this sim.

#18 VRR Virtual Reality Room

I was tempted to link to Wrath’s personal one, but thought that might get ME reported by HIM, and then blog wars, and all kinds of in-fighting and battles. Well okay, I really was too lazy to climb all those trees to find the link. Anyways, this is an awesome fun thing to do where you can sit in a 360 degree environment and pick RL scenic pictures to surround yourself with. I think this is really fun, and you can rez dance balls into the center of it, which makes for some nice pics and a little different take on an otherwise ordinary dancing experience – throw in a personal music stream and your love’s favorite song, and SCORE! 🙂

#19 ING Renault F1 Go-carts

This is a really fun place to ride go-carts, and to learn more about F1 racing. I will warn you though, that it DOES require you to wear a helmet to race, and it DOES take off your hair, so you are both baldies under those helmets. You can however custom design your own helmet with your personal design and color scheme which is kinda fun (but she will still bitch that it takes her hair off, so best not to do as a first date, but maybe one down the road after you have already won her over.)

#20 Avilion Waterfall Skyboxes

Yet another quiet little spot taken from the Avilion sim with the castle in the distance. On the other side of the river, across from the dancing gazebo, there are actually skyboxes built high up into the waterfalls, which you can teleport up to from the wooden walkway below. They even show when they are occupied, so it should cut down on people dropping in on you. Typically they each have a dance ball, and some cuddle options. They make for a great place for those long quiet talks that go deep into the night.
