There are two Floridas. The one east of A1A that makes it into the travel ads, and the one west of A1A, that is ghetto, gangs and COPS fodder. New York has a lot of diversity. South Florida is mostly depressing generic industrial architecture, malls, pain clinics and pawn shops. Both are not really what I would prefer in a vacation or living situation, but if I had to make a choice, NY would be it.

You ask what Southeast Florida doesn't have. I answered.

Implication that Miami is less beautiful? Not from me.
You basically just went more in depth about the hills and mountains.

Should have just said that.

Bushkill Falls. Looks small? It's not really small. Surroundings.

Dingmans Falls. Dingmans Creek. Surroundings.

I think Tri-State Area would probably win in diversity of geographical features. Not sure, but I have a pretty good idea it probably would. Don't get me wrong, I'm a water activities person (and would prefer Miami to New York ultimately) but I do like hiking every three months with friends and camping (we have a pretty great tent) and that area is most probably a clean sweep in favor of the Tri-State Area. You're right in that preferring one to the other is personal preference but one does have more to offer than the other, in my opinion and that's why the poll question is for overall and most scenery, by the way.

So outside of water related features (beaches, ocean, bays, swamps, bayous), what's Miami's scenery? I'm asking because I may as well know what's around me at home in Southeast Florida.

I agree. Someone like you might get robbed or shot. You better stay out for your own good. NYC would be the safer city for you. Prayers sent.

Woods, pine forests, sugarcane fields, and miles of other tropical growing farms. Since greater NY covers a larger area, there are going to be more features within the metro area. It covers 4 states.

You asked which one has the "best" scenery as it's also in the title of the thread. If you wanted to know which one is more geographically diverse then you should have framed the question that way.

This forum is quite strange to me on how it works.

http://www.city-data.com/forum/city-...r-scenery.html

This one is essentially a tie.

Atlanta is a perfect inverse analogue to Miami. One is for water related people while the other is for elevation minded people. Both are green and lush to enjoy those features and their vegetation differs to neither one could mask the other. I agree with that poll, resoundingly a tie, and easily a personal preference take.

This thread is boggling. Essentially Tri-State Area encompasses similar scenery to Metropolitan Atlanta, the hills and mountains and trees and such. Has the same four seasons and species of trees advantages, while in turn having the strength in cisterns, caverns, rock formations along the coast, palisades, waterfalls, islands, bays, and rivers yet it handily loses with people saying "blah".

Legit confusion.
