Rockford Hills is a high-class residential and commercial neighbourhood in northern Los Santos, San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto V. The area also contains the smaller neighbourhood of Burton.

Rockford Hills
SamHBSAdded by SamHBS

Rockford Hills is home to the many rich, retired people who are struggling with relationship issues and aren't young anymore to make it into the Vinewood pop culture scene. The neighbourhood contains high-end mansions, most of them built using Spanish-style architecture, a common styling for mansions in real-life Beverly Hills.

Almost all of the mansions in Rockford Hills have a gate, a pool, and a tennis court. The world-famous Portola Drive is located in Rockford Hills, where rich people go to buy jewellery and where tourists go to pictures of the black and orange Adder.

Rockford Hills is divided into two sections: northern end and southern end. The northern end consists of mostly residential homes and a small street with fancy restaurants. The southern end is dedicated to shopping and is also where Portola Drive is. The Rockford Hills City Hall is located at the centre, just across the street from Mount Zonah Medical Center. The fire station and police station are situated here as well. In the east, the Rockford Plaza serves as the shopping centre to obtain overpriced clothing.

Events of GTA VEdit

The area is a setting for many missions in the game, particularly those which start or occur at Michael's mansion.

Few missions during the game don't start at the mansion, but take place there, the most notable are:

  • Meltdown : Where Devin Weston sends several Merryweather guards to take hostage of Micheal's family, while Micheal and Jimmy were in the Oriental Theater celebrating their film. A large shootout between Michael and the guards took place in the mansion, and Michael's family survived.

Outside, the mansion, many missions and side-missions took place in the neighborhood, the most notable are:

  • Did Somebody Say Yoga? : Where Michael gets high after smoking Jimmy's weed, he's pushed out of his car by Jimmy near their mansion in the neighborhood, shortly before the fictitious Michael's nightmare of an alien abduction occurs.
  • Breach of Contract : Josh Bernstein is talking with two police officers near a burned mansion that Trevor burned before on Josh's orders. When Trevor approaches the cops and Josh, Josh betrays Trevor and tell to the cops that Trevor is the perpetrator. Trevor can kill Josh or let him go. But Trevor manages to kill the cops and escape from the police.
