Second Life Destinations for Mardi Gras Week: New Toulouse, A Vision of New Orleans 100 Years Ago


New Toulouse is spread out over 4 sims and is a good virtualization of historic New Orleans,  Louisiana.  Here is what the Second Life Guide says:

With its hoodoo stalls, speakeasy jazz joints, Creole kitchens, and period architecture, New Toulouse has a look and feel loosely based on the city of New Orleans and its surrounding swamps and bayous at the turn of the 20th century.

I would like to have seen more grand public squares such at that around St. Louis Cathedral in the actual New Orleans, and perhaps Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras, but the overall feel of the development is authentic.


To visit:

SLURL to central landing area from where I took most of the photographs:

Here is the location of a very spooky cemetery (with mausoleums above ground just like in New Orleans):

Note from Eddi:  to see a more realistic and detailed version of New Orleans/ Louisiana style Historic architecture see my photography of  historic Houmas House, which did exist in Second Life but is no longer standing.
