Beaches, glamor, shopping, nightlife, lifestyle. Something Chicago, Philly, and especially Dallas doesn't have anything close to. It's ok to be jealous, people with ceilings tend to be jealous of people above them

Cubicle? LOL. I'm self employed and do very well. Miami doesn't register on my radar, and I can more than afford to live in that cheap city.

Not even for vacation. I prefer to take my vacations to nice places. Like Monaco

This thread has gone way too off topic.

Sitting in my last day of graduate school pretending to learn.

Your tax dollars at work, everyone!

I'd rather go to the Algarve than Miami, it has nothing to do with cost.

Hey at least my office is in Santa Monica and it's 80 degrees outside! We can't be like Miami, but we easily beat out NYC and Chicago as 2 large cities with great beaches!

That isn't really true. Miami is an important business and transportation center.

It certainly has an economy more weighted to leisure than someplace like Dallas, but that's hardly a bad thing. Certainly Miami is vastly more interesting than a Dallas, and it isn't like there's no business in Miami.

Have you been to Monaco? It sucks.

It's a few streets with overpriced tourist trap restaurants and barely any beaches. The shore is rocky. The prices are outrageous. The population is mostly shady third world gangsters and the like. It's only famous because the wealthy congregate there to escape French taxation and regulation.
