The Sims Freeplay- Visiting Neighbours

In this post I will show you how to visit neighbours in The Sims Freeplay. You need to be level 9 or above before you can access the party boat and start completing social tasks.

Click on the world symbol (flashes to a gift) to access the party boat:


TIP: It is a good idea to have a look at your active goal tab to find out what goal you need to do at a neighbours before you send anyone there, you don’t want to waste time sending an adult when a preteen needs to do the goal.

1.Click on the party boat and find the neighbour you want to visit and click on visit:

image2.Select the sim you want to send there, only a sim who isn’t busy can go.


Only one sim can visit a neighbour at once

You can only visit one neighbour at a time

Babies and Toddlers cannot visit neighbours

Completing Social Tasks allows you to earn Social Points

image3.Select the object in your neighbours town to complete the social tasks goal, this will be the only active task you can see while at a neighbours. You can find my list of social tasks here

4.You can now leave your sim at the neighbours town and go back to your town by clicking on the green world symbol with the arrow (they will stay as long as they are busy):

image5.They will show up first on your simtracker back home, there you can click on them to go back to your neighbours:

image6.When your sim has finished the task you will need to go back to your neighbours town to either start them on a new task or bring them home which can be done by clicking the green world symbol while they aren’t busy or by clicking on the house with the arrow in it symbol on the simtracker:


When you go back to the neighbours town to see them when they finish a task they will return home if they have been in a neighbours town too long

Frequently Asked Questions:

How long do they stay at a neighbours?
They will stay there about a day unless they are busy or you don’t check on them, then they will stay longer.

Can they return from a neighbours on their own?
No, you need to go back to the neighbours to bring your sim home.

Will my neighbour know I was in their town?
Your neighbour won’t know you have visited them, any action you do in their town will not affect their game.

Help! My neighbours can’t see an item in my town, why is that?
They can’t see it because they aren’t seeing the most up to date version of your game, you need to connect to the cloud for them to see this version of your game.

Do you have a list of Social Tasks?
Yes, you can find that post here!

  1. Hi…I just want to ask, is it possible for our sim to establish romantic relationship and get marry with another sim from the neighboring town? I am just curious 😊

  2. Question: Is there a way to view the relationships your sims have with different neighbors without having to go to the neighbor’s town? I use multiple neighbor’s towns to complete quests so I never remember what Sims have relationships in what town. When I get a task like “Bro Hug with a neighbor’s sim” I can never remember what sim and in what town has a relationship with a neighbor to complete that! Lol is there a way to see a list of all the neighbor relationships your sims have?

  3. Is it possible to tell if someone’s been in your town, ie they knocked over a trash can and left it?

  4. I can never access Party Boat (and the Cloud for that matter) – it doesn’t load up for me and I tried all the ways I could find online. Is it my tablet acting up not letting me to access PB or it’s the game’s problems?

  5. Can i get my sims to go upstairs in another sims town?

    How can i practice in mirror in neighbour’s town?

  6. Some of my neighbors have 90+ residents in their towns with more than 10 people living at one house. How are they doing it?

  7. hi what is a neighbors podium? cant find it im on a task of pretending auctioning neighbors thing pls. help thanks a lot

  8. Are there guidelines to proper etiquette when visiting a neighbor? Specifically, is there anything I may do that may mess my neighbor up, like does clicking on pets when they find things keep my neighbor from getting that bonus (or conversely, give them the bonus, too)? Do visitors see what I directed my Sims to do, or do they see generic activities? Meaning, if I have a Sim looking through my telescope, can a visitor still use it?

    • what you do in a neighbours town won’t show up on their game, they won’t even know you have been there
      If your sim is using something it either won’t show they are doing that in a neighbours town or your neighbour will just click on that sim to stop what they are doing, but this won’t affect your sim using the object in your town
