Da Boom

Da Boom

Visit Da Boom, the very first region in Second Life, founded in 2002. It's named after the real-life "De Boom" street in San Francisco, and Residents have speculated it's also a reference to the "Big Bang" of our virtual world's conception.

Boardman Themed Community

Boardman Themed Community

Before Linden Homes, there was Boardman, an early experiment of a themed community in a gentle suburban style. Don't be surprised that the zoning guidelines date back to January 2003, and should you run across any of the locals, they're mighty friendly, so ask if they'll share their stories.

Old Orientation Stations at Dore

Old Orientation Stations at Dore

How did early Second Life Residents learn the basics? These Japanese-styled orientation stations are an essentially unchanged replica of lessons from 2003, so the information is outdated, but the nostalgia lives on.

Baffin Island

Baffin Island

This island has seen many significant events, from its time as a welcoming spot for teen Residents "graduating" to adulthood to the hills used in Linden Lab ad promos for the then-new WindLight graphics. An abandoned library-turned-coffee shop is at the heart of it all, reminding us of how virtual connections can transform into real-life friendships.

Stillman Giant Bears

Stillman Giant Bears

These cuddly behemoths have welcomed travelers from all walks of Second Life to old Stillman, whether they were flying as avatars or arriving via zeppelin tours. Behind the bears, you can tour the legendary Ivory Tower of Primitives, where many generations of Residents have learned to build, and the freebie Bazaar and The Man statue are also worth sightseeing.
