Here’s the tricky thing about the word vicinity–it means the surrounding areas of a particular place. But it does not mean the particular place itself.

So.

If we say, “We were in the vicinity of Shangri-la Plaza when you called,” it means we were not at Shangri-la Plaza, but we were nearby Shangri-la Plaza or close by.

I learn new things every day! :)
