I would visit Miami and live in Atlanta..
I'd say Miami is more of an international city while Atlanta is more of an American city with significant international ties.

Even though most of the nations being represented are closer in distance to Miami than many US states are.

Miami/South Florida is one of my least favorite cities because of the culture. I prefer Atlanta but everyone has their preferences.

To visit, Miami. To live, Atlanta.

I enjoy visiting Miami, but have no desire to live there. I much prefer Orlando & Tampa.

Now if I could duplicate our place in Atlanta in Miami Beach as a second home, then....

Miami. I live here and have visited Atlanta.

I prefer Miami. Miami has its issues but I prefer it over Atlanta. Miami has great weather, beaches, and nightlife. The nightlife here is hard to beat and on par with NYC, Chicago, LA, Vegas, NOLA.

Miami is more expensive but you pay for what you get. Its a fun city to live in and worth the extra money.

Visited both, considering both. Atlanta has a major edge, though: it's much easier to live. Almost 70% of Miami renters have to live with roommates or shell out more than 50% of their income to get by. The median income in Miami is $30,858 a year, while Atlanta's is $55,733, and Atlanta is STILL cheaper as far as housing. Don't even get me started on job opportunities. Just move to Atlanta, you'll actually be able to enjoy the city you live in, plus the weather's decent, only a few hours from the ocean, and with cool places like Buckhead and Piedmont Heights, you'll never want to leave.

Most progressive: probably Atlanta, although neither city is very well known for being progressive.

Best night-life: certainly Miami.

I enjoy both cities, but I would prefer to live in and visit Miami. The weather and beaches beat anything that Atlanta has to offer.

In Atlanta nearly everyone speaks English though, which can be an issue in parts of Miami.

Miami is more Spanish, while Atlanta is more southern black in terms of culture.
