Great Second Life Destinations: The Classic Neon Signs of Route 66 in Bay City


Bay City, which opened in 2008, is a collection of 45 interconnected sims and is one of the most impressive urban developments in Second Life. Linden Lab designed the area to represent "the American urban experience, between 1940 and 1965, perhaps best typified by Chicago circa 1950 and marked by a distinct deco influence.  I show some of the neon signs here which are very well done and show a slice of Americana that is now vanishing,

Much of Bay City is connected by a series of drawbridges and canals:
