Vice City is a city in the Grand Theft Auto series, based on Miami, Florida. Two versions of the city have appeared in different generations of the series: The Grand Theft Auto rendition is geographically very similar to Miami. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rendition (also featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories) is composed of two mainland islands, with five smaller ones in between. This rendition of Vice City draws significant inspiration from the 1980s culture of Miami.
Located in the Florida Keys, Vice City enjoys a subtropical or near-tropical climate with year-long sunny weather, occasional strong winds and rainfall. It is also suggested that in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories that the city is exposed to hurricanes, as is Miami; early in Vice City, bridges are closed to the public as Hurricane Hermione is believed to be approaching the city. Similarly in Vice City Stories, Hurricane Gordy is believed to be approaching the city.
Famous quotes containing the words vice and/or city:
“There is no vice so simple but assumes
Some mark of virtue on his outward parts.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“Here far from the city we make our roadside stand
And ask for some city money to feel in hand
To try if it will not make our being expand,
And give us the life of the moving-pictures promise
That the party in power is said to be keeping from us.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
