Vespucci is a beach town and all-round freak show where tourists come to take photos of bodybuilders, performance artists and hobos, and to buy medical marijuana. The famous Vespucci Canals were created at the turn of the century in a desperate attempt to bring some semblance of European culture to the western United States.

Vespucci is an area more suited towards tourism, resorts, and vacations. Because of this, many stores and hotels are located in Vespucci. The most famous area is the Vespucci Beach Sidewalk, where tourists walking along the beach go to shop for souvenirs, bicycles, and ice cream. When people are tired of walking the beachfront, they sit on the various benches that dot the sidewalk. Vespucci can get very crowded at daytime, especially on the beach.

Vespucci is split into three sub-districts:
