Looking for a souvenir?  Serenity Store has a selection of casual wear compliments of the Island.  For builders there are two giveaway items, a selection of shadows, and faux regions - linked prims that form a region-sized platform complete with ocean. At the store there is a teleport to a sample faux region - check it out!

Balloon ride to Sky City
Balloon ride to Sky City. Sure, to teleport is fast as lightning, but taking a moment to look around adds to the immersion and fun. When you arrive at the Welcome Area, just turn to the right and walk over to the balloon ride docking steps. Now, if the balloons aren't there, it's because someone rode up to the city and left Serenity Island another way... In that case, teleport to Sky City and take the ride down. Either way it gives you a chance to see an overview of the main island even before taking a more complete tour.

Museum of Neon Art
The main island art gallery features the actual world neon art of Lili Lakich (co-founder of the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles).
