"Church, bank, gun store, bar... what more do you need to enjoy life in rural America?"
— GTA V digital manual.

Paleto Bay is a small town located on the lush northern coast of Blaine County, San Andreas. Sitting at the base of massive Mount Chilliad, Paleto Bay is a coast-side town home to the Cluckin' Bell chicken factory, used to make chicken parts for all of San Andreas to enjoy. The town also has a Los Santos County Sheriff office. The dense vegetation that grows around the area is a vast contrast that of the dry and arid Sandy Shores'. Paleto Bay is a good resting stop for truckers due to its large number of commodities and the fact that Route 1 runs right through the middle of town.

Paleto Bay is the typical small town settlement found in rural areas across America. Paleto Bay is much more developed than other towns in Blaine County, such as Sandy Shores. There are several store chains that operate in Paleto Bay, like the famous Herr Kutz Barber. In fact, the Cluckin' Bell corporation operates a large chicken factory in the southern end of Paleto Bay. It appears that Paleto Bay experiences far less crime than other areas in Blaine County. However, despite the friendly image portrayed, Paleto Bay is filled with corrupt local police who are known to cheat the Paleto residents out of their money through the Blaine County Savings Bank. The local police didn't hesitate to rush to the bank when a robbery occurred.

Paleto Bay is the northernmost settlement in San Andreas. Route 1 passes through the middle of the town. In the south, there is a Go Loco Railroad train station situated behind the Cluckin' Bell chicken factory. However, it is revealed that Merryweather Security has control of the train station as well, which was seen when one of their courier trains was derailed. On the western end of the town, the Paleto Forest serves for hunters like Cletus Ewing to hunt various different wildlife. The centre of Paleto Bay is where all the shopping and commerce is found. Stores such as 24/7 help provide the town's economy. The southern end of the town is dominated by the presence of a large train station and factory, along with the hills leading to Mount Chiliad. The northern end of the town includes a small peninsula along with a few tiny islands. The eastern end of Paleto is more dedicated to hard labour. A scrapyard, garage, and a small farm can be found. There's also a RON gas station.
