I'll still give the edge to Miami, but Dallas isn't far behind.
Agreed. My cousin lives in Dallas and I was surprised how many pretentious type people there were. But I still think Miami is more pretentious.

South Florida is very keeping up with the jones's imo.
I'm thinking someone has never been to Dallas.

I voted for Dallas. From a neutral perspective from up here in Chicago, Texas has a reputation for having a lot of wealth, especially in DFW and Austin. Miami does not have that reputation at all.

I'm so happy Dallas is not winning this poll. I don't think people are pretentious at all here. I voted Miami.

It depends how home like you want the citizens to be. Its sortof an unfair question, or just asked in the wrong context

Dallasites will pounce on me for saying this, but I have to go with Big D .

Miami is flashy and gaudy, but they came by it honestly. The empyrean coast inspires luxury. The plains of North Texas? Not exactly.
