Romance Is In The Air

Need someplace romantic to take your sweetie for Valentines Day? Here is a list of some of my favorites. These places can also be enjoyed by yourself too as they are very beautiful, but somehow I find exploring with a friend is a little more fun.


Persephone has been one of my favorite romantic places in SL for a long time. The gorgeous architecture is reminiscent of greek and roman. The many walkways, arches, and gazebos peek out through lush, green gardens and colorful flowers and flowering trees. Of course, any beautiful landscape in SL would be incomplete without well-designed water features such as lakes, rivers, streams, and waterfalls. Persephone has plenty of those too.

There are many couches and benches throughout Persephone that include many pose balls. So finding that "perfect" setting to sit and chat shouldn't be very difficult. And, if you choose to go beyond romance to "sexy pixels," options are throughout the island for you, too.

The castle is a whole adventure on it's own. The castle consists of many levels and has couches throughout with lots of pose balls to sit, relax and chat. If you want to be king or queen for a moment, find the king's and queen's chairs and have a seat. The castle has a bedroom with amenities. The top level is a bath/pool area with pose balls to enjoy. This is a mature sim.

Lost Gardens of Apollo

Even though this sim is so popular, it is easy to find a romantic, secluded niche that you and your Valentine can share. The Lost Gardens of Apollo are absolutely gorgeous with lush, green gardens, gazebos, tall towers, floating pools, and even a romantic dance floor. Many pose balls around the sim make it easy to relax, cuddle, hold hands, and kiss. Apollo is also one of my favorites. Even though the sim is mature, there is no nudity or sex allowed in the sim. So, feel comfortable bringing a new Valentine in your life, too.

Eternal Reflections

Eternal Reflections is part of the Reflections Region. Has lots of the usual niches with romantic pose balls. Unique to this area are the small cottages dotted around the center of the sim and the black sand beach surrounding a good part of it. The beach has sunbathing areas, campfires and a beach club. The other areas of the sim have lots of waterfalls, walking trails, and more romantic niches.

Also, don't for get Midnight Reflections and Secret Reflections. I did a blog entry on them back in June of 2007. CLICK HERE to see that entry.

Midsomer Isle

Midsomer Isle is yet another beautiful garden sim. It boasts many romantic nooks. The thing that makes this sim stand out are the exquisit dance floors in the sky that make you feel like a prince and princess.

Romantic Joy

Romantic Joy is a gorgeous garden sim that has about everything for innocent romance. This is a PG sim with no nudity. Sweep your sweetie away on one of the two dance floors: one for romantic dancing and one in the clouds for heavenly dancing. Relax under the trees in the Enchanted Woods while chatting together. Sit by a bonfire to keep warm. Have a picnic while sharing time together. Enjoy the privacy and cuddling in the tree house. Discover the many, many places for cuddling including some more secluded area.

The Botanical Gardens

The Botanical Gardens is a peaceful sim full of beautiful landscaping, plants, walkways and water features. You'll find little nooks and crannies around the area to cuddle with your sweetie. On the east side of the island, rez your on Gondola and take your sweetie on a romantic ride.

Acropolis Gardens

Acropolis Gardens is another amazing garden park that is 6 sims. Walk through the endless trails with your sweetie. When you arrive, take one of the tour options around the area to see what's available. I personally like the walking tour that let's you walk with your honey arm-in-arm. The landscape changes around every corner. You'll find mountains, waterfalls, caves and even a volcano. Of course, such a romantic place has lots of pose balls around to have some Valentine fun.

Avilion Grove

Avilion is a midieval roll-playing region that spans 6 sims. As opposed to the adventures and battles in the other sims, Avilion Grove is a very romantic sim. The sim is outlined by high cliffs and waterfalls. A walkway takes you around the entire sim. Along the way, the walkway goes under the waterfalls. You will find teleport balls that will take you to hidden rooms under the top of the waterfall to have some private alone time. There are also pose balls throughout the sim. On the island in the middle of the sim, is a big, gorgeous castle. The castle houses the Grand Ballroom which is absolutely stunning.

Valentine is an island with romantic niches. Little nooks are places throughout the public parts of the island and there is a cave with many romantic areas under the large waterfall. In the southwest section of the sim is a two-level dance floor to give your Valentine a twirl. Keep in mind that this is a mature sim.
