I've figured out los santos and most of san fierro, but los venturas is a bit harder seeing all the los vegas maps i come accross don't have many suburbs listed, does anyone know of a site that has the real place names, i have tried google as suggested in another topic but to no avail... also what towns the small towns in between cities are modeled after would be great biggrin.gif

Mt. Chiliad = Mt. Fuji

Mt Fuji is in Japan sigh.gif

 

I remember someone posting a picture of the possible inspiration for Mt Chiliad. I'll see if I can dig it up.

 

EDIT:

 

It was suggested here that Mt Chiliad looked like the 'Half Dome' in Yosemite National Park (California). The image links are dead, but you can find loads of 'em with Google Image Search:

Not really - Mt Fuji is snow capped, it has a relatively gentle incline, and is a volcano turn.gif

Actually it's Haight-Ashbury. There was this guy in Who Wants to be a Millionaire and he said he's from Haight-Ashbury. Also, there was a question in the SA Contest a long time ago about the real name for Hashbury.

The Windy Windy Windy road is a real road in San Fransisco, but I can't remember the real name... same with the Big Pointy Building.... if you watch those Expedia commercials it shows a shot of San Fransisco, and the Big Pointy Building-real-life-counterpart is in the center of the picture. In Los Angeles there's a really tall building that looks like the really tall building you can parachute from in LS biggrin.gif The Lil' Probe Inn is the Lil' Ale Inn which is actually near Area 51, like the LPI is near Area 69 in SA
