Tampa Bay and Orlando Metro. Those are the two that I can think of off the top of my head.

If the music is loud, there is no real conversation, only texting, so there is nothing to talk about except superficiality.
What´s funny is that most of the clubbys will tell you they just want to unwind. The problem is most of these people can barely carry on an informed intellectual-based conversation even in the daytime.

Ahhh yes... Miami nightlife. Excuse me while I go bang a hot chick now
1. Hedonism is awesome.
2. Miami is kind of an outlier, especially if you're talking about South Beach. Definitely not the kind of nightlife I'd want to experience every weekend, but DEFINITELY fun sometimes.
3. Many other cities with great nightlife (including Miami depending on where you go) that you can strike intelligent conversations all night. Especially in the lounges and classier bars.
4. Music is awesome.
5. Dancing is awesome.

I agree....There's pretty much all kinds of nightlife in the Southeastern Quarter of the city and there are many family friendly communities in the area.

I don't have a figure, but I'd guess that in urban settings the percentage is quite high. I don't think of myself as a particularly social person, but there was a time in my 30s when, normally, I was going out to clubs at least once a week.

Chattanooga, TN. Smaller city, but it has a pretty nice and walkable downtown and is only 2 hours from Atlanta.

Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh are definitely all underrated

Milwaukee: Visited the first time not long ago and really enjoyed it. Its clean and has a "small town" feel in a city. The lakefront is wonderful. I'm a huge fan of Lake Michigan.

Cleveland: Awesome food, an evolving and growing city that has big plans and is actually following through with them.

Pittsburgh: Great universities, beautiful topography, some beautiful views of Downtown and, even though its not my thing, a sports culture that's hard to beat.
