Miami is grossly OVERRATED. Always being praised for it's beaches, clubs, weather, culture. Only thing it lives up to is the beaches. The weather is torture for anyone that likes change in seasons or a relief from the constant heat. (No Miami, 70 degrees is not "chilly" I don't care what you say.) It's okay to visit, but I lived there for far too long! The language thing is totally a problem. This is America, speak some English please. You've been here since the Clinton administration, no excuse!

Atlanta feels extremely slighted to have not been included in this poll, and has decided to become more inclusive than usual in response.

Atlanta has decided that D.C. is truly Sunbelt (roots and all, you know), and demands to be included with any mention of D.C. as a comparison to which is better than any Sunbelt city mentioned in the poll.

A little late night CvC humor...

Yes, those 70-degree Miami winters are just brutal. Hence the huge tourist traffic from Miami to places like Chicago and Montreal in January and February to get some real "relief". There is nothing like experiencing bone-chilling -10 to remind you how much you hate that constant heat.

$5 says that hate is based on stereotypes, not actual experience.

Hate's a strong word.

Besides. None of the polled cites are really "Southern".
Miami's south, but it's not "Southern"

Dallas and Phoenix - Most definitely not.

Houston might be a little bit.

It's 90+ from May to sometimes October. In southern Minnesota it only gets below zero a handful of days in the winter, it usually reaches the 20s in the winter, which is hardly brutal. The brutal cold up north does not last as long as the relentless heat and humidity in the deep south. I'd rather deal with like 10 days of subzero lows on average than almost every day reaching 80 and half the year in the 90s. 20s and 10s, are not that cold, people overstate it. I have a cousin who hates Florida weather and wants to return to Nebraska's climate. Not everyone finds it "paradise." Plus, up north experiences ALL kinds of weather. Hate the snow? Wait till spring. You'll still be guaranteed a warm summer. Live down in Miami and hate the heat? Wait for a few days in winter when it gets down to the 50s and the locals swear on their mother that it's "freesing" Want a little bit of snow? Get your ass to the Carolinas and spend over 1000 bucks in a cabin.

How is Dallas not a southern city? I hear tons of southern drawls up there, people say "y'all" a lot. Just cuz a city is large does not make it southern. The north does not own a monopoly on urbanness. Texas overall, is a state that is southern. (Well, I consider it southwestern, but culturally it's southern. Nearly everyone says y'all, regardless of race or ethnicity. Most people who actually are from there by generations have at least a trace of an accent, even in Dallas.)
