SummerTown USA

From the makers of Easter Town, a holiday-themed location has sprung up in the Elizabeth Town sim. For the Fourth of July season, "SummerTown USA" just looks the very definition of Independence Day.

Like earlier holiday towns this year such as Easter Town, the place has a cartoony look. The shops are white with red and blue roofs with bright colors. Overhead, planes fly around leaving red white and blue trails. Overlooking the town is Mount Rushmore with American flags on each side with the sun rising. And there are American flags and red white and blue all over. While one looks around, patriotic music plays in the background, "Coming to America," "God Bless the USA," "Independence Day," "My Hometown," "Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue," and others.

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

The place offers a number of freebies. For instance near the entrance, there are a couple hats available. Most items however one has to pay for, sometimes hundreds of Lindens. For a place where you can find more freebies, check out the Corner of Revolving Time. But there's still plenty of free goodies here. You can get a free band uniform that comes with a few instruments.

Daniel Voyager dropped by about the same time I did, and we ended up taking both of the free hats. Check out Daniel's article on his blog (here).

One corner of the sim is darker than the rest. This is where you can see a fireworks show, right over a copy of the Statue of Liberty.

Besides shop and get freebies, there's a sack race track you can try out with others. There's a pie-eating contest setup. There's also a drive-in theater at one corner of the sim. There are several movies set to play, although the schedule as to what plays when was unavailable.

A cheerful 4rth of July location.
