  1. We should clearly use the GTA V street names.
  2. Welcome back. Have a comfortable stay.
  3. San Andreas Street Names & Regions Common usage As Grand Theft Auto V only covers the city of Los Santos and its County region, we should only stick to using the terms of the city of Los Santos and Los Santos County as a placeholder for the city of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. The State of San Andreas term is therefore a placeholder for the State of California. That means concretely that the terms of Los Angeles and the State of California don´t exist in our universe. That also includes postal codes, street names, neighborhoods, etc. Useful Maps Los Santos Street Names Use the Zoom-In function to have a better look at your desired area.

  4. San Andreas Postal Codes Introduction A postal code (also known locally in various English-speaking countries throughout the world as a postcode, post code, PIN or ZIP Code) is a series of letters or digits or both, sometimes including spaces or punctuation, included in a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail. Common usage As Grand Theft Auto V only covers the city of Los Santos and its County region, we should only stick to using the terms of the city of Los Santos and Los Santos County as a placeholder for the city of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. The State of San Andreas term is therefore a placeholder for the State of California. That means concretely that the terms of Los Angeles and the State of California don´t exist in our universe.

  5. Usage of IRL location names and terms Introduction A lot of people don´t understand that the world of Grand Theft Auto V or any other open-world games that are built based on real-life locations is practically a whole new universe. The world of Grand Theft Auto V is based on the real-life State of California, especially Los Angeles. As the developers of Grand Theft Auto V created their universe and named it The State of San Andreas, all players are supposed to stick to the given universe and use only official location names as long as they are In-Character. Common usage As Grand Theft Auto V only covers the city of Los Santos and its County region, we should only stick to using the terms of the city of Los Santos and Los Santos County as a placeholder for the city of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. The State of San Andreas term is therefore a placeholder for the State of California. That means concretely that the terms of Los Angeles and the State of California don´t exist in our universe. The Grand Theft Auto History The Grand Theft Auto series has mentioned multiple locations over time such as Vice City, Liberty City, San Fierro and Las Venturas. As for now, these locations also don´t exist in our universe. Everything that is outside the Grand Theft Auto V universe, is not to be used. Therefore talking about Las Vegas or Miami Beach In-Character is legit. If someone asks your character about Las Venturas, your character would have no idea where or what that should be. Examples of official location names in our universe In-Character In Real Life The State of San Andreas The State of California Los Santos Los Angeles Vinewood (Sign/Bowl) Hollywood (Sign/Bowl) Del Perro Pier Santa Monica Pier Vespucci Beach Venice Beach Los Santos Forum Los Angeles Forum Jefferson Towers Watts Towers Los Santos Storm Drain Los Angeles River The Alamo Sea, AKA Sandy Shores Salton Sea Galileo Observatory Griffith Observatory Marlowe Vineyard Malibu Rocky Oaks Mount Chiliad Mount San Jacinto Conclusion As the universe has its locations and terms, everything that exists in the Grand Theft Auto V game should act as a placeholder, if possible, or as a whole new location that doesn´t have to exists in real life. Only use location names and terms that belong to the universe. That also includes street names, zones, areas, neightborhoods, building names, vehicle names, postal codes, etc. Useful links San Andreas Postal Codes San Andreas Street Names & Regions
