What cities are in GTA San Andreas?

GTA San Andreas has a large map which is based mainly on three cities, namely Los Santos, Las Venturas and San Fierro. These cities are based on Los Angeles in California, Las Vegas in Nevada and San Francisco in California respectively.

Los Santos:

Los Santos is the largest city depicted in GTA San Andreas and has been provided with the most population and largest area by Rockstar. Many Los Angeles landmarks have been shown in the game like the Capitol Tower, the Watts Towers, the Hollywood Sign and many others like them. Many other districts in this city have been inspired from the real life Los Angeles ones.

Las Venturas:

It is the second largest city in the map with respect to area and has the smallest population in the state. Just like its real life counterpart, this area is mostly desertous and welcomes many illegal activities. Many of the noticeable roads in Las Vegas like Harry Gold Parkway and Julius Thruway can be seen in this game.

San Fierro:

The smallest city in the GTA San Andreas map with a population more than that of Las Venturas, San Fierro is located in the Western parts of the state. Some additional references are added in the map including the two Firth of Forth bridges in Scotland and the Forth and Forth Road bridges. A very interesting thing worthy of being noticed are the scars of the earthquake which happened in 1989 in Loma Prieta.

Other Towns:

In addition to these three main cities, some smaller towns and Counties are located in San Andreas too. Red County, Palomino Creek, The Panopticon, Montgomery, Blueberry, Dillimore, Whetstone, Angel Pine, Bay side, Las Barrancas and Bone County are some of the additional places for whom San Andreas is a home to.

With an area measurement of 75.84 square kilometers, GTA San Andreas holds the title of second game with the largest world map after GTA 5, which in turn has greater draw distance than the former one.
