For the past several months, I've seen hundreds of gorgeous Animal Crossing: New Horizons villages that have seemingly been terraformed and decorated by experts. Up until recently, I've had to admire these creations from afar by watching YouTube videos or getting lucky enough to get invited over by the owners. Well, all that changed with the Summer Wave 2 update, which has brought dreaming to the game.

Players can share their dream islands with others using an Animal Crossing Dream Address. The best part about it is that visitors can run around and look at your creations without affecting the "real" island. Since this is the case, several talented island curators have been sharing their Animal Crossing Dream Addresses publicly so others can admire their work. It's easy to see why this is one of the best Nintendo Switch games. We've looked around and gathered the most gorgeous islands we could find. Here are the best dream islands to visit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

If you want any dreamland help, check out our guide and learn how to visit and create dream islands.

Resident Evil Villagers (DA-3210-6005-0459)

The internet has fallen in love with Lady Dimitrescu, a.k.a. Tall Vampire Lady. So it was only a matter of time before someone created a dream island for her and the rest of the REV cast. I've got to say, @u/masabow1018 did an amazing job creating everything.
