Miami is actually doing very well in that regard (for the US).... LA is much larger as it annexed its suburbs so this might have something to do with it - but it might not. Either way gotta say Miami is better in this regard (Side note: LA is above Seattle)

List of U.S. cities with high transit ridership - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

28. Miami, Florida - 12.16%
34. Los Angeles, California - 10.97%

Miami wins by percentage.

There are a lot of variables for these stats but they are what they are.
Basically that means that there are more people living without a car in L.A.'s city limits than there are PEOPLE in Miami and Miami Beach.

It's the same blunder folks make she say Miami is more dense than L.A. 35 sq mile city vs 470 sq mile city. Wow.

As much as the movie sucks, and as much as I despise Colin Farrell, I do think this scene is really cool. I'm in love with the idea of flying over waves on the way to Cuba with a hot chick's hair just blowing all around.

Does anyone know if you need a license to drive a speedboat? And what are the odds I'd get stopped by the Coast Guard if I tried to go to Cuba? And what are the odds I'd be arrested and imprisoned once I reached Cuba?

Raymond was barking like a wild dog for the last two days, but I think people are finally coming to their senses. Fellas, there is really nothing in LA that comes even close to South Beach. My question is: Why? A 12-18 million metro, with nice climate, glamor, hot babes, and a beach, but not a single stretch of urbanity that will really impress you.

But I think I know the answer.

And in a couple of months South Beach will be Manhattan by the beach.

Just saying "Miami" sounds cooler. Mee-ah-mee.

To think that no place in L.A. "comes close" to South Beach is too stupid a thought to be posted on the Internet. I don't see anyone agreeing with that except maybe Bajan. I love how this clown dismissed the Venice Boardwalk (which is merely a mile long btw). Thats pretty much all he does when hes proven wrong. As for Miami's part time residents, L.A. gets a lot of part-time residents in its tourist neighborhoods, since it, you know, draws more visitors than Miami?

Btw, munchitup lives a tract that clocks in at around 50-60,000 psm, in Hollywood. Got any sense tracts like that in Miami? No.

I like Venice Beach but of course it has lots of people. It's a frickin pedestrian-only boardwalk! Even the Hollywood (FL) Boardwalk gets packed on weekends and holidays. It's a boardwalk!

By that line of thinking why don't you impress us by showing the crowds in Disneyland?

Oh why am I wasting any time on you...
