-Culture/Arts/Entertainment options
-Retail/Restaurants, etc

LA for everything but Miami does have a waterfront feature, thats it.

To be fair, DT Miami has come a long way and has made strides at improving its urban fabric but its not in DTLA's league IMO.

It would be hard for Downtown Miami to catch up with DTLA. DTLA is a historic district filled with human-scale early 20th century buildings.

You made this dumb thread just to boost LA, and now you're questioning someone else's opposing view?

No, not correct. Some of the posters saying they preferred downtown LA gave a reason why. The only poster who said they preferred Miami simply said, "Miami" with no reason. Just asking.

Notice I did not make a poll. This was not intended to be a competition.

Look, downtown Miami has 70,000 residents while downtown LA has about 50,000. Pretty impressive given Miami's much smaller size. I LIKE Miami...but I will admit in my prior visits I spent hardly anytime in downtwown (it has been over five years). From what I have been reading there is a lot going on in downtown Miami and I look forward to seeing it in person next time I am there.

I have not been to downtown LA in almost 10 years, so its hard for me to judge...but I think DT Miami has really come into its own (though I have heard the same about DT LA).

I think the most special part about Miami's DT is the bay...being at Margaret Pace park in midtown...or walking along the bay in brickell, or around brickell key, or now at Museum park soon...and having this dense modern city at your back and the bay in front of you...its special.
