I don't like Miami either but i certainly see its strong appeal for many people.Especially those from places like Chicago or Minneapolis.

I'd take Minneapolis over Miami any day and I think most in the Minneapolis area would agree as Twin Citians tend to move elsewhere within the Midwest, West, SW, South (TX), and NW --there is IRS data to back this.

So that may be true for you but for me,as much as i just don't care for Miami,those cold wnters are just too much for me and Im not alone apparently.

Im not knocking Minnesota or Minneapolis,I think it is a great state and a great city but thats nothing to me if I'm miserable due to the weather.Life is about compromise and everybodies priorities are different.

No worries. I'm not a huge fan of winter either, BUT the Minneapolis has much more to offer than most cities / metros, which a lot of people don't realize and that is fine. I'd still take over a city / metro like Miami.

It's hilarious to see Atlanta's city population placing dropping, yet the city is gaining a deeper worldly profile every year.

That baby boom is over and net Mexican migration to the US has fallen to close to zero for the last half decade. It is likely that mass migration from Mexico to the US is over for now, unless something else happens to drive them here.

It really shows how city proper population isn't as important as people think it is.

Exactly. Minneapolis may barely crack the top 50 in terms of population, but I think anyone would be hard pressed to name 15 more important cities.

Phoenix
Dallas
San Diego
San Francisco
Seattle
Atlanta
Boston
Denver
Washington D.C.
Miami

There's 15 from the top of my head you can make a real case for being more "important" than Minneapolis. There are probably a few more.
