Fayetteville, NC and Columbus, GA - both are adjacent to two huge, sprawling Army posts and have whole areas that would seem identical.

Very similar:

Ann Arbor, MI to Madison, WI to Berkeley, CA


Madison is located between 2 lakes and is a state capital. Ann Arbor is landlocked. I do not see a strong similarity.

Miami does not look like LA . For past 10 years Miami is turning into a big highrise tower in sky look by the water.

I don't see any cities in the US or Canada that look like Phoenix or Los Angeles.

You can try that they're all college towns with a bohemian and youthful vibe.

I said you needed some imagination for that comparison but really you don't.

Sure Miami doesnt look like LA (but Santa Monica does resemble Miami beach) the similarities are:

1) both are very latin coastal cities that anchor their regions (south Florida and southern California )
2) both are coastal warm and entertainment driven (music/models in Miami ; movies/models in LA)
3) both are flashy cities (check out the cars, the clothes)
4) both attract beautiful women from around the USA and really the world
5) both are very international

The energy is VERY similar

The high-rises are mostly along the coast. When you go inland, it's a bunch of neighborhoods with low-rise high density. Kinda like the flatter areas of Los Angeles Basin.

I understand the differences between coastal South Florida and coastal Southern California are vast(such as CA's mountains and deserts), but does one really need a strong imagination to see at least a little bit of the similarities between the coastal towns in the 2 regions? Palm trees? Spanish/Mediterranean revival architecture? Beaches? NOPE!! Don't see any similarities.

I couldn't say since I've never been to L.A., but my girlfriend's mom said Miami reminds her of SoCal because of the trees and a lot of the houses (she lived in California for about 15 years).
