New Toulouse Bayou

The text of the sim says: "Welcome to New Toulouse Bayou, a private estate community based on the American city of New Orleans, Louisiana, and its surrounding environs in the first 25 years of the 20th century. (1900-1925)" New Toulouse Bayou is worth spending some time exploring, by rail, by boat or on foot.

Bellisimo

Just after reporting the loss of JJ Lanes, I found another similar place. A relaxing day at the beach in a tropical paradise... ready for surfing.

Makeahla West -Rediscover the Heart of Nature

The last of the group... a good group to visit, in my opinion. This last sim has an eclectic mix of fauna from all continents, Asia (orang-utans), Africa (elephants) and Australia (Kangaroos), and so on

Whatever happened to... JJ Lanes II

JJ Lanes II was the first sim I visited that offered surfing. It lasted at least 2 years after my first visit, but is gone now.

Elven Mist -*Everwinter* Post Apocalyptic Theme Park

The text of the sim says in part: "Everwinter Is Inspired By The Abandoned Amusement Park In The Real World City Of Pripyat. The Pripyat amusement park in Pripyat, Ukraine is an abandoned amusement park. It was to be opened on May 1, 1986 in time for the May Day celebrations (decorations for this event are still in place in Pripyat today) but the plans were interrupted when on April 26 the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away. The park was opened for a couple of hours on April 27 to keep the city people entertained before the announcement to evacuate the city was made. (...) The audio message you can hear in russian as you enter Everwinter is the actual recording of the evacuation message played to the city of Pripyat following the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. The evacuation of Pripyat took place the day after the disaster on the afternoon of April 27, 1986. The evacuation of Pripyat's 43,000 residents took 3.5 hours, using 1,100 buses from Kiev. The inhabitants were allowed to take only necessary items with them, as they were to return in three days. This information was released to avoid panic and to stop people taking too much luggage with them. Later, the authorities decided that the city must remain empty forever."
