Destinations are the various places which can be visited in Destiny 2.
Most of them consist of patrol zones, open-world areas containing activities, such as Patrols, Adventures and Public Events. Some Destinations are, or contain, social spaces — safe zones where players are unable to use their weapons and abilities. There are also special mission areas, which have to be launched separately from the map or a beacon in a patrol zone, and exist on their own maps, most of the time preventing players from meeting Guardians that are not a part of their fireteam. Each location contains several sub-areas, sectors. Lost Sectors found in patrol zones are a type of activity.
The TowerThe Tower is the main social space in Destiny, it is represented by the Traveler in the Director.
