Shoreside Vale is considered to the snobby residential area in Grand Theft Auto III. The gangs in the region are nothing more than adolescent and young adult men bored of suburbia but the missions here are the hardest that Claude ever has to face in order to get revenge on Catalina. Many hidden packages are found by trespassing on private property (even wonder why the police tries to arrest you when you bump into a person's car, but never when you go over the speed limit without hitting anything or anyone, or even when you trespass into a person's yard?) With the exclusion of mom and pop stores and the obligatory Paint and Spray shops, there is almost no commerce and little industry in Shoreside Vale. There is also a dam that provides power to [[Liberty City] and the parks here hold vehicles for rampage missions.
