Granite Falls

The Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat Game Pack brings a whole new world for your Sims to explore – Granite Falls. Granite Falls is a little different from Willow Creek and Oasis Springs: it is a vacation world, designed for Sims to take a break from everyday life.

To travel to Granite Falls, click the Phone icon in the UI, navigate to the “Travel” tab and click “Vacation” or “Vacation With”. You will then be taken to the travel screen, with Granite Falls loaded by default. Granite Falls is divided into two areas: one containing rental properties, and a forest. Granite Falls, like all worlds, can be customized in Manage Worlds, so you may customize, delete or replace lots as you see fit. By default, there are five rental properties: four lodges of varying prices, and a campground. The area around the properties is vibrant with plenty of public space. There is also a community resting spot in the forest area of the world.

Beside the Campground and the Forest Neighborhood, Granite Falls also comes with a secret 3rd Neighborhood. If you’re looking for spoilers and a secret to unlock it, Click Here!
