Best Sims 3 Towns

The Top Ten

1 Sunset Valley

I love sunset valley! I almost use this town in every family, I think they have one of the most best houses there and I recommend you to try sunset valley. But, once in a while, you can't really do anything so maybe try the others too if you use this town too much.

First town I played the longest! People say its old, but it's the best

Sunset Valley is a classic, it's what you typically start out with and I couldn't be happier.

Usually the first base game town with green trees is the best town ( like pleasentview and willow creek they were also the best in 2 and 4. Also I feel like the downtown neighbourhoods are good as well so bridgeport, Belladona cove, TS2 downtown and San Myshuno. I also love Isla Paradiso but its kinda laggy.

2 Bridgeport

I really love Bridgeport. It offers a wide range of activities to do with your sim. Not only is it a city (which I think is so cool) but also you can get the underground route to get to a place quicker! Also the little hills next to the city is an amazing idea to have where all the celebrities live, it really does seperate the average sims and the famous sims!

I love Bridgeport. I think it's the best because it's really the only city-like, urban town that comes with an expansion pack. Though it's basically invaded with vampires and celebrities, it's still really fun to play.

Growing up in Chicago, Bridgeport hits home. I love the apartment buildings and the endless venues (lounges, bars, dance clubs). So beautiful when lit up at night.

I heart Bridgeport

3 Twinbrook

I love the "swampy" feel to the neighborhood and add to the fact that the architecture of the houses here make it enjoyable for me.

I've never played in this world. - LittleLovelies

Such a great little feeling - monteluv

Twinbrook venues are always full of people, it's the best!

4 Appaloosa Plains

Appaloosa Plains is a wonderful, spread out town with loads of areas to explore. The downtown area of it is bustling and peaceful at the same time.

I love appaloosa plains because of the country feel to it. I love the beauty of the world and so much space for your animals to explore.

I have Pets and I love Appaloosa Plains! It is definitely the size of Sunset Valley but it has more of a "rural" feel to it. It is amazing!

Love Appaloosa Plains because it had a variety of activities to do with animals.

5 Moonlight Falls

It's beautiful. It's scenery, name, and Supernatural's expansions town, it truly reminds you of Disney's home of supernatural, Gravity Falls.

I love this town. I just began really playing in it, and I'm in love! The atmosphere, supernaturals, and size of the town are just amazing!

So cool! The dark and gloomy feel was perfect for Supernatural!

It's so magical

6 Lucky Palms

This word is my favorite because of mostly the looks

This town is the most prettiest town it is nice to have a huge family and has really beautiful houses and locations

It's great for raising a family and all the sims are so interesting

It's amazing for the family lifestyle

7 Isla Paradiso

For last 5 expansions (Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University life, Island Paradise, Into The Future) The Island Paradise is my favorite. Only bugs to be expected. I suggest you DON'T play if you have for example adults and kids because switching takes a lot of time as well as you can experience bugs.

Well Isla Paradiso is the only town I have that can do scuba diving. Sometimes I'm so mad when you live in a different islands from your work place or school you have to boat or sometimes swim.. But I love it

I love Isla Paradiso, but it has horrible routing issues if you want to play an architect! If a client's house is on an island, the game makes you go back to the mainland for almost every client interaction. It wastes hours each renovation.

This island is beautiful and this was my first sims 3 expansion, and my favorite for a long time. My only issues is its WAY too small if you have a lot of other expansions, as there is nowhere really to put them because the place is so small.

8 Riverview

This is my favorite. It's beautiful, suburban, and it has a lot of Sims so if you go to any community lot there will always be a sim there.

I really enjoyed this neighborhood. It was more beautiful than sunset valley in my opinion. - airbb

It has the awesome planes that have the farm patterns but n lot

9 Monte Vista

Just got this world, and I absolutely love it so much. It has lovely scenery and landscaping. Also, I just moved the Capp family from Roaring Heights into Monte Vista, right next door to the Monty family. Things are going to get real lol.

Lovely scenery, definitely a European town

aaa

10 Hidden Springs

Hidden Springs is actually really cute. I've played it for so long and loved every bit of it. There's something magical about the place for your sims. If you aim on having a gardening sim or fishing etc. I suggest living there in the rural part, it's much more fantasy like.

The Fountain is actually not placed in the city, but I love the fairytale feeling the rural parts have, as well as the strikingly beautiful spa and the smaller number of inhabitants that works well with older computers.

This large map has it all in my opinion. Even some empty lots that are the right size for some good stuff.

Hidden Spirngs is so cute that I could die! but it misses that one little tiny thing that you don't even realise on how much it would improve the town. But overall I would 100% recommend this to any player.

The Contenders

11 Sunlit Tides

This is literal paradise, next to Isla paradiso.

Summer paradise it is!

This is basically the non-lagging version of Ilsa Paradiso

Simple and beautifull

12 Starlight Shores

This is my absolute favourite town because it has so much to over like the fact that half the houses have that Spanish villa feel to them and then there are all the modern mansions!

This is the only town I ever play in because it has so much to do and I love the feeling of how it's so city-like with the karaoke lots and others

I love it because it has nice houses and it has every thing you need if you want to be a singer magician or an acrobat

13 Lunar Lakes

Easily one of the most original and hauntingly beautiful settings, with the most unique take on the classic characters. Aesthetically stunning, from the flora to the architecture and interior decor.

Easily the most imaginative of the worlds, with the aesthetic seeming to draw inspiration from the cult sci-fi classic Fantastic Planet. Gorgeous, haunting, and endlessly fun to play in.

I'm not into sci-fi stuff but dear lord I love the aesthetic of the little mountain houses. this is my all time favorite world

14 Barnacle Bay

The not-so-tiny island might have to be my favorite. You can walk around being a pirate without any sim judging you. - Merilille

15 Roaring Heights

I think Roaring Heights is an AMAZING CITY! It is so interesting, it is a great Art-Deco type world that I really enjoy!

Wonderful town...I think it's better than Bridgeport. It has a lot to do, interesting Sims, and an amazing vibe.

I just downloaded that town, and it's really really cool!

It's got a 1920s/1930s theme, which I love! Also comes with rollercoasters and some really cute hair/clothing items! :')

16 Dragon Valley

I actually like certain towns depending on career path for my Sims. But Dragon Valley...I love this town. It is big, beautiful and so unique. There a lot of empty lots, and a lot of large ones. My favorite used to be Isla Paradiso, but there are lag issues. Not so much after reading some articles and learning what to fix. I love also Monte Vista. But for play, Dragon Valley. For resort mogul, Isla Paradiso. For the culinary Monte Vista or Bridgeport. Nectary owner, Riverview. Different towns cater better for different careers. But if you love to build (as I do) I tend to go to the towns that have either a lot of empty lots, or have enough space and decent land to place lots. Lucky Palms is great for building. As is Sunset Valley or Appaloosa Plains.

A pretty city with one-of-a-kind chances for breeding color skin slider sims.

I really love this town. its not just another town, its another universe. u can have dragons and lots of things. I love the buildings, I love new sims and I really really love those elfs

Lots of medevil building which make you feel like you from another time! Lots of new items and dragons*!

17 Midnight Hollow

Amazing spooky ambiance in this world. The Victorian houses are just incredible and perfect for my games. There's just so much to say about this world and SO much included with it. The trees, the roof accents, the awesome re-done rabbitholes. I didn't realize that they could/would put out a world with this much content.

Spectacular architecture.

Everything there looks like a vintage Victorian oil painting.

18 Aurora Skies

A gorgeous Iceland-inspired town with nature completely different from other towns.

This looks like a modern city and new one I like it!

Very beautiful I love it

I am Swedish so this town feelt like home, especially the buildings.

19 Sims University

I love playing in University. The town has beautiful hills, and it's a really nice looking town. It has a lot to do.

I love the University feel to it. Although, I do wish it was a bigger University

20 Setra

This is absolutely my favorite town.

21 Oasis Landing

The thing I love about Oasis landing Is how futuristic it is and you get to choose what it is like and how you want it to be

22 Shang Simla
23 Champs Les Sims

We love living here. It has the best scenery and we are so happy here.

Possibly my favorite. I wish Sims could live in the World Adventures towns, and we could play the premade families there. Oh well. France (Champes les Sims) is massive and so detailed. I love the ambiance it has.

24 Bishopton
25 Sugar Maple Coast

I remember when I was younger and I got my first sims game, sims 3 pets Xbox 360, I remember this world. They need to add this to sims 3 - Sambazing
