Grand Theft Auto V Manual description.

Blaine County is a county featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, located in southern San Andreas, It is bordered by Los Santos County to the south.


Blaine County is a geologically diverse county, featuring a large desert region, dense forest and several mountains. Blaine County is the single largest rural area in the Grand Theft Auto series. Blaine County contains the towns of Grapeseed, Sandy Shores and Paleto Bay, as well as several other smaller settlements. Blaine County is separated from Los Santos County by Route 68. Despite being a separate county, its policing remains under the jurisdiction of Los Santos, with Los Santos County Sheriff officers patrolling the county's highways.

West Coast Talk Radio is not available in Blaine County. If the player crosses the county line while listening to the station, the signal will be lost. Likewise, Blaine County Talk Radio can only be listened to in Blaine County, and is not available in Los Santos County.

Occasionally, during the nighttime hours on Marina Drive, local civilians can be seen walking over the long sand dune lining the road. If you follow them, they will lead you to a distinctive group of locals inside an old flooded out, and dilapidated building smoking, talking, and listening to Radio Los Santos from a boombox.


Blaine County is an amalgamation of several Southern Californian counties adjacent to Los Angeles County. For example, the eastern desert and more rural areas near the Alamo Sea appear to most closely resemble western Imperial and mainly Riverside County, whereas the western and more northerly areas such as North Chumash and Paleto Bay draw inspiration from southwestern Ventura County. Paleto Forest draws its resemblance from the San Bernardino National Forest. Many of the northernmost and southernmost areas such as Bolingbroke Penitentiary, draw inspiration from southwestern San Bernardino County. The area is also very mountainous compared to the adjacent Los Santos County.

  • The official seal of the County's motto reads "The morning glory county". Morning glory is said to be when a male wakes up with an erection for no apparent reason. This is another reference to Rockstar's sexual humor.
  • "Blaine" is a name of Welsh origin and means yellow.
