The Tesla family relocated to Windenburg Island when Fearghus became the heir. Their house is the modern one (EA, the Lighthouse, remodeled inside) in the foreground with the pool. There is a crypt under the house, built into the bedrock and some ancient ruins, which now serves as the family tomb.
The cottage in the middle of the picture above is Felicity’s House, which I built. Felicity and her daughter, Laurie, will live there.
In the picture above, at the point, with the dock, is Summer Beach Shack, by Deligracy. It is Elodie and Aubree Echoweaver’s home.
Around the other side of that little peninsula, is Coastal Cottage, by charly-simmer. This will be the home of the Harris family, who are moving on to the island.
I love charly-simmer’s Coastal Cottage; it is rambly and beachy with big porches.
The other side of the island is dominated by this magnificent castle, Hohenzoller Castle by Rosenkaeferchen
Currently, no one lives there, but it is a residential lot.
Windenburg City is near the island. The Windenburg Waterfront restaurant by polyprincess123 has a gorgeous view, and experimental as well as classical gourmet cuisine, day or night. You can see more of it here.
After dinner, you can get an espresso at the Hare & Hedgehog, or take a romantic stroll in the park
Romantische Rosanna (national park venue) by The RealSellaSu
Or dance at the Windenburg Spyglass Club by J0L1990. This creator is so prolific and makes really great lots.
Windenburg Old Town features historic buildings with a modern vibe. You come out the subway station at the Windenburg Coffeehouse by Scheinheilig1603
Here’s the coffeehouse (and subway station) by Scheinheilig1603 in daylight. After finding all these buildings with his incredible style for Windenburg, I might actually use this sub-hood a lot more often!
If you want to go the pub while you’re in Old Town, you can stop by the Halloween pub ver.1 by Sharonbl, play pub games, and get a drink
Moving out into the countryside of Windenburg, you will come upon an orchard with a restaurant, the Goth Gardens, by jenba (Origin ID silrosse)
In the background of Goth Gardens, you can see the Priory, a church/monastery/museum by Ruthless_KK. This is the site where Fiona and Yuki married, although this lot was on the island in the prior iteration of the neighborhood.
The countryside also has a quaint and cosy pub, the Shrieking Llama (on the Gallery, listed as Lovers’ Pub ReMastered by Melissa-simka)
The Bjergsen Family (Elsa was Fearghus’ first girlfriend; her sister, brother-in-law, and their daughter, Lucille) will be moving into this fabulous home, The Suburban Shingle by gizky
And Ava Stone, who is new to Take Me to the Moon, will be moving into this adorable country cottage, Goth Cottage Starter, by lluispire. Ava was my tester sim for the historical challenge, as well as when the June CAS update was done, and she was also made from the same sim in CAS, as my historical challenge sim, Agni.
The more modern part of The Take Me to the Moon world includes the nightlife and shopping district of Magnolia Promenade

Newcrest features the most posh area of town, at Oracle Point, where mansions spread out along the trolley line, on the golf course.

There are homes for middle class families elsewhere in Newcrest, with an elementary school closeby
Below Left: Newcrest Family Treasure, by RogueRhi. This will be the home of several teens from the Backyard Stuff promo video, Crystal Waters, Josh Charmer, Demo Blast, and their guardian, Ada Carraci.

The high school is also in Newcrest. It was built by lidzzh and is called Blakewood High School on the Gallery
Across the street from the high school are a few regular hangout spots for the students:

And Crystal and Josh are getting ice cream down the street, at Amanda’s Soft Serve, by thetideschanging
Next door, not pictured, is a really cool, small gym. It’s called Modern Mini Gym by PersephoneZ
The other main commercial area in the Take Me to the Moon world, along with several residential neighborhoods and Arcadia Creek Park, were built by Jenba, and the neighborhood is called Blythe Harbor. You can actually download the whole save file, a complete ready-made neighborhood she built without CC and generously shared. Most of the lots in the screencap below are Jenba’s, with the exception of Pique Hearth (the Pancakes’ home) and the houses on either side of it, which I built.
Here’s the main shops in Blythe Harbor, all built by Jenba. They are also available individually on the Gallery. Her Origin ID is silrosse.
On the end closest to the camera, is Brumfield’s, a bakery, with a bookstore and florist next door.
This is Callahan’s Pub with the Cafe Mocha next door. It is a fabulous date venue.
And below, is the Harbor Health Club, a gym and fully functioning spa. Each of these lots is amazing, beautifully detailed, and very playable.
The last area of the Take Me to the Moon world is Oasis Springs, where Delaney Tesla and Alexander Goth’s historic home is located. The home, silo, labs, gardens, and paintings are now a museum where the public can visit or book events.
Uncle Barnaby’s trailer is back; a lot of time has passed since Delaney and Alexander were young, and this area has reverted to a trailer park.
The main drag in Oasis Springs is now zoned for multi-family housing.

& a little adobe home remains, at the end of the street: Casita Bonita by Ruthless_KK
More upscale homes are found in the area where Oasis Springs Elementary used to be:
Spanish Luxury Riad by Miquette06
and Toscana Cottage by Sunkal, where Ashlee Tesla (Eric & Rachel’s daughter), and her daughter, Amy, live.
In Oasis Springs, there is also a luxurious tropical resort-style pool for public use. This incredible lot, Tropical Island Pool, was built by llonkaSims
Fiona’s family has moved into Cacey’s Victorian, which I built, to give them more space.
Elizabeth Tesla moved into Fiona’s Place, which I built.
Darwin Arias has moved into Bright House, which I built
Other awesome Blythe Harbor households (not pictured, but on the Gallery on Jenba’s page, Origin ID silrosse):
TopVictoriaSecretAngels at Riverside Georgian
Sierra Moss’ family at Hallstatt House
Elder Wolff and CathyTea’s families at Coastal Ranch. I don’t see this lot on the Gallery individually, but it is part of Blythe Harbor. This lot is so much fun to play!
McKenzie Arias, at English Revival Cottage
Marisa Arias has moved into Little Colonial Revival
Oh, how I want to play these families because the houses Jenba built are just so amazing, but it will be fun for the Teslas to visit them.
