Lakeshore City, at first glance, looks very similar to the real-life city of Chicago. The layout of the city and the surrounding area of Lakeshore City looks awfully reminiscent of one of the largest cities in the United States. It’s fair to assume that Lakeshore City is a replica of Chicago.

It’s going to be important that you get familiar with the look of Lakeshore City. Darting away from the cops isn’t going to be so easy, so it’s important to know where to go in order to shake off the police. Additionally, the city and the surrounding area are scattered with collectibles and other landmarks. Finding collectibles is another way to make cash, so be sure to look at the map often and roam throughout the entire area to find each one.
