- Richman is actually considered more up-scale than Mulholland. This is evident by the types of houses that contrast with eachother: Richman having more traditional mansions, and Mulholland having more stilt houses that aren't very appealing. Also, the roads in Mulholland are more narrow and ridden with cracks, in contrast to Richman's more refined, wider roads.

The beach where it is always sunny and warm attracts massive amounts of tourists from all over San Andreas and on an (inter)national basis.

With the high amount of visitors there is no interest in building residence areas at all due to the tourist traffic.
- Verona Beach
- Verona Beach is the most eastern part of the southern beach front of Los Santos, located to the right of Santa Maria beach. The strip named 'the boardwalk' (while there's no boards) is a popular sight-seeing area for tourists and the activities embracing the road make it a very traditional Los Santos area. There's few housing complexes which formerly made him to some of Los Santos' most famous writers, artists and poets and throughout the summer it's an on-going tourist hotspot. During the winter the weekends are usually occupied with catering locations and the area is visited a lot by cyclists and hikers.
- Marina is a rather luxury area based in Los Santos, with the commercial areas such as Mulholland, Vinewood and Market enveloping it along with Santa Maria Beach and Verona Beach occupying the front. There's a canal mouthing in Verona Beach which has some of the famous architectural housing complexes built around the waterfront. The place looks simply godly, and palm trees and so forth circle the area. There's two bridges crossing the canal, and staircases form a strip past each side of the canals also connected to some very unique houses. The architecture looks slightly hispanic while adopting traits from italian architecture aswell. The place is generally expensive and each single house is considered a monumental structure of Los Santos.
- East Beach
- East Beach is a stroke along the north-east coast of Los Santos, formerly built as a residence area for rich people during the 19th century however it has developed into a hotspot for tourists and expensive houses magnificently built uphill. It's connected to Las Colinas and Playa del Seville. Interstate 425 runs along the area, splitting up both the beachfront boardwalk and the housing complexes running uphill along a turtle-back shaped road that elevates the houses above the ground next to the highway. A tunnel is genuinely located underneath this one boardwalk and connects Las Colinas and Los Flores with East Beach.
- Playa del Seville
- Playa del Seville (or 'Seville' as a local abbreviation for the district) is an area located to the south-east of Los Santos mainly populated by black and hispanic people. Interstate 425 is nicely patched up while running through this suburb and the famous boardwalk is often visited by tourists for sight-seeing purposes. Travellers from time-to-time park their vehicles here to rest during their travels despite it lacks resources in general. During the night this place is known to be a hotspot for the distribution of illegal wares whereas gun/drug deals are often performed on this very strip sprouting from the interstate. This is due to the fact it's covered and it lacks lighting, while it's also greatly covered and barely visited due to gang activity. During the night Playa del Seville is known to house mainly criminals on the streets. While the facades look appealing to citizens the theatre of the residents is frowned upon by outsiders. Playa del Seville was a front during the 1992 riots of Los Santos.
- East Los Santos
- East Los Santos is a district based east of Jefferson and was a notorious fortress during the 7-day period of riots in 1992. The housing complexes are appartment in particular and the area leads uphill to East Beach, watching over the distance ocean. Gangs of hispanic and black heritage often fight for this area's territory while it also gets populated by a majority of europeans as much as Jefferson, let alone this is in fact a low-class area.
- El Corona
- El Corona is a hispanic neighbourhood located to the south of Los Santos and is connected to unity, with the airport located directly to the south. It houses only people of hispanic backgrounds and it's a notorious while also feared hispanic ghetto. Living here, for white and black people, is a deathwish. The culture is violent. Salvadorians and mexicans often run into deadly fights here, and gangs literally crowd the streets day-in day-out. Hispanic immigrants settle here often and end up being dragged into gang culture. El Corona is a safezone for coyotes transporting illegal aliens over the bourder.
- Little Mexico
- Little Mexico is one of the oldest districts of Los Santos, located to the east of Pershing Square bourdering Unity. Traditional hispanic culture fills this area with a market during the weekends. In contrast to El Corona and so forth it's a mere commercial area, and there's a lack of gang activity. As such citizens all over San Andreas and tourists visit this place to purchase their weekly ingredients for mexican cuisine. The Old Plaza Church is occasionally visited by people living in the eastern parts of Los Santos.
- Ganton is a notorious black ghetto located east of Pershing square and Idlewood and houses mainly black people. Poverty had always been an issue and the government is rendered incapable of dealing with unemployment due to residents being hesistant towards their white government. Black gangs tied to Crips and Bloods nations occupy the various blocks and narcotics distribution is a massive issue around this area. During the 1992 riots Ganton was a front of war, and particularly the road connecting the Stadium and so forth with the little plaza located in the center of the projects. Police officers occasionally got shot here during the 80's although the police precinct had taken measures regarding rules. Patrols are rare and gang activity has adapted to the police as though they are exactly aware of how they operate.
- Idlewood is an area located west of Ganton and east of Little Mexico. It's the area where the Idlewood gas station is based and is as dangerous as Ganton, yet more subtle. Idlewood holds less interest in turf wars and the territory is more consistant, meaning there's less shootouts and so forth. Mainly fair workers with black heritage house the residences in this area, though. Some of the most famous black people have gone from rags to riches in this area and citizens appear to be less influenced by the gang cultures as though it's being frowned upon by these people.
- Jefferson is located to the west of East Los Santos and east of Glen Park, and makes home to a majority of european citizens that immigrated to Los Santos during the 20th century. It's a working-class area with little gang activity. The majority, however, is of irish-american origin and some of them have violently participated during the riots in 1992. The boundary connecting Glen Park and Jefferson was the crime scene of some random murders during the riots and a memorium has been placed in the park area for everyone to be remembered. Jefferson contains a very peculiar type of architecture in Los Santos.
- Glen Park
- Glen Park is located West of Jefferson and is populated by a mixed culture of latinos and europeans. The appartment complex located to the south-western corner of the area is used by immigrants in particular due to it being a cheap, working-class area. The park is one of the rare nature reserves settled in the urban district of Los Santos and calls for city-wide visitors.
- Las Colinas
- Las Colinas is located north of East Los Santos and West of East Beach, while also north of Jefferson. It's stationed on the very hill tops of the rural area in Red County and houses mainly people of hispanic origin. The area is home to some gangs with a high crime-rate due to the housing complexes being generally cheap although new. Scum and outcasts live in the area and its as though the area located in the outskirts are mere slums housing poor immigrants. As much as Ganton, poverty had ever since its existance been an issue. Until 1930 this slum area had not been recognized a suburb by the Los Santos municipal government until people occasionally named and treated it as though it was an actual independent district built by the citizen itself.
- Los Flores
- Los Flores is a small area with elevated roads located in between East Beach and East Los Santos. Most of the structures are cheap housing/appartment complexes and low quality stores along the promenade.

The community of Ocean Flats was first settled by those of Irish descent due to the cheap housing available at that time.
- Through the decades the area has gain in repute as being home to the infamous Callahan Mob, originally started during the prohibition era as the Ocean Side Gang. Currently the neighborhood is still made up of a majority of Irish families, though other nationalities are present as minorities. They've also gained recent media attention due to the wide spread disapproval of homosexuality and gay marriage, creating difficulties between themselves and the bordering neighborhoods.

Bone County is the desert region spanning the northern and northeastern portions of San Andreas. This arid region is the largest continuous land mass in the entire state, and suffers from frequent sandstorms. The general sentiment is one of rugged isolationism, juxtaposed against the one bustling, sparkling oasis in this vast desert, Las Venturas. Bone County is home to large public works projects, such as Sherman Dam and The Big Ear; tourist traps like Regular Tom; large rock formations like El Castillo del Diablo and Arco del Oeste; ghost towns such as Las Brujas; a quarry; and a top-secret government research facility, Area 69.

- Las Brujas
- Las Brujas is a tiny ghost town nestled between the Sherman Dam, Arco del Oeste and El Castillo del Diablo in Bone County, San Andreas. Also near the area are Area 69, Regular Tom and Verdant Meadows. The name Las Brujas translates directly from Spanish as The Witches or The Sorceresses. The town is depicted as a two-street settlement populated by predominantly wooden buildings, appearing similar to a frontier town in the Wild West. In addition to the standard fare of (now empty) homes and businesses, the town also features a windmill and a modest wooden chapel, complete with a fenced cemetery containing tombstones in the rear. At the graveyard there is a common myth which involves a single woman seen standing in the middle of a foggy night. There is no evidence which supports whether this is real.

Tierra Robada, which means Stolen Land in Spanish, is a semi-arid region of San Andreas. It is located in the very northwestern portion of the map, and is home to the city of Bayside and the marina, as well as the small towns of El Quebrados and Las Barrancas. It is usually considered to be a separate county from Bone County, since it is physically separated from Bone County by the Sherman Dam and the Sherman Reservoir, with only a land bridge in the north connecting the two land masses. The east side are badlands. Tierra Robada's southern tip also provides the land area for the Robada Intersection, which is the major interchange connecting the highways servicing Tierra Robada, San Fierro, Las Venturas, and Bone County.
- Aldea Malvada
- Aldea Malvada is a small, isolated Ghost Town at the northeastern edge of Tierra Robada, San Andreas. It is situated on top of a large rock formation just east of El Quebrados, and west of Arco del Oeste and Sherman Reservoir.

The town is surrounded by a cordillera of unnamed mountains to the north and west, which separates it from the open sea. Bayside is a highly affluent area, apparently modeled after the Sausalito area of Marin County, just north of San Francisco. Like Sausalito, Bayside possesses a well-used marina, and enjoys the isolation from the bustle of San Fierro, while maintaining the sophistication and pretense of the area. Bayside also sits at the western edge of Bayside Tunnel, which connects this portion of Tierra Robada with the remainder, and provides support to the highway servicing the general area.
