Los Santos is truly one of the most audacious and must see cities of the world. The people are beautiful and their attitudes... well, that's for you to discover. The city has everything... whether you're jet-setting, roughing it or in between, it's ALL here. Los Santos is an urban wonderland with its Babel towers, labyrinth of criss-crossing freeways, side streets, rundown residential districts and glamorous neighbourhoods. Los Santos is a place where you can see it all and have it all.

The middle section of the city and its business/financial district, containing major corporate headquarters in Downtown, skyscrapers, very busy streets, many tourists and shoppers, and civic-minded buildings.
The "poor" side of the city, made up primarily of working-class suburbs, small-time businesses and stores, single-family homes and housing projects that are all subject to violent crime, gang violence, drug problems (especially crack-cocaine), car crime (e.g. carjackings), poverty, prostitution, unemployment. Considered to be "the ghetto" of Los Santos.
Los Santos has the fourth busiest airport in the world, serving more than 50 airlines up to more than 150 destinations around the world. A hub for American and Delta Air lines, the airport is the international gateway to the city. Connected by the massive highway system around the city, a monorail system to connect the airport and the city has been planned, while the LS Metro trains serve both T1 and T2. Another airport was located further west, named Los Santos Domestic Airport, formerly the main airport of the city. Now it only handles Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 jets.
Los Santos was founded in the southwest United States in the early 1900s. Originally a small village, it was developed into a large metropolitan area slowly. Beginning the 1960s, population was around 1 million. Now, Los Santos is both a hub for commercial and transportation.
