GTA Online has been around for almost a decade, and some of its locations have become pretty popular, instantly recognizable to players. In this article, we are going to list out the top 5 iconic locations in GTA Online. These places often have good traffic and some have been around since the beginning of the game.

5 - Eclipse Towers

The Eclipse Towers is a residential skyscraper in GTA 5 and GTA Online. It is located on South Mo Milton Drive in West Vinewood, Los Santos. Most players like to purchase the $1,100,000 penthouse - they need it to do heists in GTA Online.

The convenient location of the Eclipse Towers makes them one of the best safehouses in the game. It is right between the two most important towns, Los Santos and Blaine County. Players can use the penthouse's garage to store up to 10 vehicles.

4 - Los Santos Customs

Los Santos Customs is a vehicle customization and repair shop featured in GTA 5 and GTA Online. It has been there from the beginning, even before the first update of GTA Online. There are four Los Santos Customs garages in San Andreas, located all over the map.

In the past, these mod shops are gathering sites for griefers. Campers hide on rooftops, waiting to snipe at unsuspecting players. A lot of death matches have started here.

3 - Darnell Bros Warehouse

One of the easiest ways to make money in GTA Online is through warehouses. The largest ones have up to 111 crates, enabling players a lot of chances to make money if they have a good crew.

For just $3.500.000, players can purchase the Darnell Bros Warehouse. Those who seek to maximize GTA Online warehouse profit tend to use this location, as the distance between it and the cargo is fairly short. Furthermore, the road layout is also simple - you only have to go in a straight line.

Grinding crates can be boring but it is definitely worth the time. This is probably why a lot of GTA Online players remember this Warehouse.

2 - Diamond Casino & Resort

While GTA San Andreas has a casino right at the start, GTA Online players have to wait a few years to get access to their own casino. Rockstar added the Diamond Casino & Resort in a 2018 update.

The place is a gambling hotspot with high stake games and various attractive prizes. VIP members gain entry to exclusive services like a master penthouse.

However, the most memorable part of this location is the casino heist, the first heist of this type in GTA. In this heist, players can get a huge amount of cash if they know what to do.

1 - Cayo Perico

This is the biggest update for GTA Online to date, which adds a completely new area named Cayo Perico. This island is a big change of scenery from the original GTA V style, with the whole place in a tropical climate.

Due to Cayo Perico being a brand new map, there are a lot of secrets to uncover. GTA Online players can find skeletal remains, alien eggs, and even the Loch Ness Monster here.

However, the best part about this iconic location is the heist. The Cayo Perico, the best heist in GTA Online, is the first-ever heist that players can do alone, without any help from other teammates.
