This is a list of things you should do when you're on another island!
|Jump to a section!|
Each island sells a different set of flower seeds, and some items are only available during a specific season.
|Native Fruit||100 Bells
500 Bells (on other islands with a different native fruit)
|Foreign Fruit*||500 Bells|
*Foreign fruit refers to any other type of fruit that is not native to your island.
If your friend's native fruit is different than yours, you can sell your native fruit to their island for 500 Bells each, instead of selling them for 100 Bells on your island.
How to Get All Fruits
If your friend's turnip prices are higher than yours, you can visit your island to sell your turnips! Make sure to send a tip as thank-you gift!

Make wishes together with friends! When you make wishes on a friend's island during a meteor shower, you will also get star fragments on your island the next day!

When more people water your flowers, the success rate of cross-pollination will be higher.
You can tell how many people have watered your flowers through the sparkle animation. When a lot of people water a flower, it will have golden sparkles instead of silver.
|Watered by 1 Person||Watered by Several People|
|Normal Sparkles||Golden Sparkles|
You can visit your friend's neighbors to receive DIY Recipes from vaillgers who are crafting on their workbenches. Each player will get the recipe when they talk to the respective villager.
You can tell when somebody's home when there is smoke coming out of their chimney.
Help beautify a friend's island, and get materials on the side! Pick up weeds that you can sell or use to craft items. When Leif is visiting, you can sell weeds for 20 Bells each. That's twice the price than at Nook's Cranny!

Complete the different kinds of fruits by trading with your friends. You can also trade other items such as recipes, DIY items, fossils, and artwork, if you have duplicates. Both sides will benefit from it!
To "catalog items" means that you can pick up an item to put in your pockets, and it will be added to your catalog. This is beneficial since the item will be available to purchase through Nook Shopping.
You cannot place items when playing online, but you can drop items for other players to pick up.
This is useful if you have friends playing on the opposite hemisphere, since you will experience different seasons! You can get DIY Recipes that are limited to a season, but of course you would also need the limited-time materials to craft it.
During Spring, you can get young spring bamboo, and during Fall, you can shake trees to get acorns and pinecones!
This is a list of fun activities to do when playing with your friends online. The more people you have over on the island, the better!

Dress to impress at your friend's island! This is perfect for seasonal events such as Bunny Day and Halloween!
This requires a little bit of a setup, so you can have a runway to showoff your look! With a wand, you can transform into 8 outfits. Maybe the best-dressed gets a reward?
Celebrate birthdays, or any other occasion, with your friends! Especially at this time where we need to stay indoors, there are always ways to spend time with your loved ones. Grab some poppers and start the party! Don't forget to bring gifts!
This is enjoyable when you have donated a lot to the Museum. Stroll around with a partner, and enjoy the exhibits.
Place instruments and play them together with your friends! You can start a rock band, or even an orchestra, with the right instruments!
Flex your 5-star island with your friends by giving them an island tour! Show off your creative areas, and who knows, maybe you'll inspire them too!
You can play simple games with your friends such as Tag, and Hide and Seek, or opt for competitive games, that although need some amount of preparation, are guaranteed to be fun when playing with your friends! Set up the stage, prepare rewards, and let's get competitive!
