And for the love of god, never compare South Beach to Vegas. Both are tourist traps, but there is considerably more variety to Vegas, and that's putting it generously.

South Beach, otoh, is pure sex.
Yeah, all those 75 year old retirees on the beach are super hot. Sure you're not thinking of Rio de Janiero when you're making these comments?

On the other hand, meeting up with your boys at the MIA airport, renting a convertible, and cruising into South Beach with the top down while listening to Rick Ross' "Super High" is right on time. That's exactly what I'll be doing in two weeks!
I FROM South Florida originally, and I prefer the new school(and old school) LA artist(Kendrick, Game, Odd Future, Ice Cube, Snoop, etc) to the New school Miami(Ross, Ace, Khaled etc). But Palm Beach County to the North of Miami has alot of untapped talent. YouTube a guy called 1hot from Delray Beach. I'm sure listening to Super High in a convertible on the way to SoBe would be fun though. I love that beat. The music video is kinda cheesy though.

Stop hating. You're just mad because Santa Monica doesn't have parties in the freakin' ocean like South Beach.

You need to stop watching Golden Girls. The retirees are further North. I like LA, but this is getting ridiculous. LA>Miami overall. No doubt. But give Miami Beach credit where credit is due.

not to mention the fact that he thinks I am you, or that you are whoever I don't really know I guess he thinks everybody from the east coast is 1 person.

You really think South Beach holds a candle to the Vegas strip in terms of places of interest? That's funny.

which is just false. Because how would you even know? By driving through it?
Exactly! By driving through it!

When I go to London, Chicago, Boston, Buenos Aires, SF, etc. I don't feel like I need a car. Because they have a dense, concentrated core and great PT. In LA I do. Why? Because (i) it's too spread out with large areas of (relatively) low density housing that have nothing of interest and (ii) inadequate PT to quicky and efficiently cover the large area.

That's my definition of what is a walkable environment, not whether you can actually walk from point A to point B. Heck, you can walk coast to coast if you want.

Now I know we've had our debate on whether you need a car in LA, and I don't mean to rehash it, but this is my view. Accept it.
