South Dakota, Mount Rushmore
Carved into the Black Hills of South Dakota are the iconic faces of four former presidents of the United States--George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. These men were chosen to represent the first 150 years of American history and America’s cultural heritage. Get your  picture in front of this National Monument.

Manhattan - NYC - Hotel Chelsea
The hotel has always been a center of artistic and bohemian activity and it houses artwork created by many of the artists who have visited. The hotel was the first building to be listed by New York City as a cultural preservation site and historic building of note.  Picture with your avatar behind the desk - showing the hotel Chelsea sign.

NY - Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty  was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986. There is a very small landing area - beware!  Get a picture with Lady Liberty.

California - Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean.  It has been declared one of the modern Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Get a picture with the bridge in the background.  Note: There is a horse you can ride if you want.

Texas - The Alamo
The Alamo, originally known as Mission San Antonio de Valero, is a former Roman Catholic mission and fortress compound, site of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836, and now a museum, in San Antonio, Texas.  Picture inside by flags

Massachusetts - Nantucket Yacht Club
Nantucket, the world’s leading whaling port for about a century, had lighthouses  by 1784. As Nantucket evolved from whaling capital to vacation resort, the lighthouses became a popular attraction. The name “Sankaty” is said to come from a Wampanoag word for a highland or “cool hill.” Get picture of your avatar at the top of the SL Coast Guard Station Sankaty Lighthouse. (Across the water from the yacht club)

Washington, DC - World War II Memorial Park
This Memorial is a scaled replica of the original memorial located in Washington D.C. The SL version was commissioned by the SL Flying Tigers and built by RL architect, Deusen Marx. The purpose of this Memorial is to honor the sacrifices of a generation and commemorate the allied victory in World War II.  Send a picture in front of your state if you are in US. Otherwise, it is your choice.

Missouri, St Louis
The Gateway Arch, or Gateway to the West, is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in St. Louis, Missouri on the west bank of the Mississippi River. It was built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States. Find the arch for a picture.

Hawaii is the newest of the 50 U.S. states (August 21, 1959), and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches and oceanic surrounding, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists alike.
Hawaii's coastline is approximately 750 miles (1,210 km) long. This SL Hawaii has many fun things to explore. There are ski-doo, hang-gliding, and a butterfly tour. So grab your lei and join the fun.
Get your picture by the Aloha sign.
10 extra points for a picture of you hang-gliding or bungee jumping.
