Busteddddd. Just checked the LA Photos thread and yep, he liked the photos and even asked for MORE!

LV is so irrelevant to me, I have never once even entered the LV subforum.

Me complimenting on photos has nothing to do with me wanting to live there.

Do I hate Miami ? Los Angeles ? No. I Love Both Cities, They are Great Places.

Same way I Love New York and other cities that I no way in hell would live in.

Unlike other posters on here I call it how it is I speak on actual knowledge of places.

Vs the other posters on here who just like to talk non-sense, lies, exaggerate stories and hate.

Some people talk about how irrelevant some cities are yet they visiting and posting about them.

You would think that someone who really lives in West LA has better things to do right?

Or is the real truth they've never really been to either place that they claim and they really just live a boring life in the middle of no where?

You know what, I like that Vegas has quality suburbs... Since when did that become a knock against a city? Henderson (part of Las Vegas metro) is one of the best mid sized cities in the entire country. Summerlin, if it was a city on it's own like Henderson, would be right up there with it.
Anybody notice how this thread got taken over from a lovely visitor and it has become another "LA is awesome, Las Vegas is gross" thread? Speaks volumes about the mentality of people from Southern California. Gotta push their thought that LA is the king of everyone and everything down people's throats when it doesn't have a damned thing to do with the topic at hand. The idea that they're above everybody is so ingrained in their personalities that they can't stop themselves from using every opportunity possible to turn a conversation into "LA vs *insert feeble city here*" debates.
So go ahead... Enjoy it... You can have your staggering tax rates and grossly overpriced homes. The only reason they are so high is because people are dumb enough out there to commit to loans that obnoxious in order to live the "Cali Life."

Gag.

So... As this thread is titled... Vegas vs MIAMI.

Actually I tried my best to keep it Vegas vs. Miami until cityKing decided it was in his/her best interest to tell me why I don't live in LA and why I live in St. Louis (which I've never been to nor even mentioned). I simply mentioned how I couldn't wait to get back to West LA where plantlife and unique houses exist. That was a comment on the monotony of beige stucco houses filling an entire metropolitan region surrounded by beige sand and beige mountains and beige plants with very little greenery.

Henderson and Summerlin are nice places. I have friends and family friends that live there. But cityKing thinks he/she can have it both ways. It's impossible to discuss Vegas vs. Miami and NOT include Miami Beach, Coral Gables, FTL, etc., yet cityKing felt the need to dismiss those cities.

We have to establish one thing. Are we talking about the metro regions or cities? IMO, Miami wins both ways. However, Miami wins by an even larger margin if we discuss just city limits as the city limits of LV basically have nothing of value. DT LV is picking up, but without the Strip, located mainly in Paradise, the LV metro would be a tiny desert village.

If discussing city limits, the mountains can't be discussed. Yes, you can travel to them, but the city of Miami residents can just as easily travel to the beaches. Miami city has waterfront and riverfront homes and access. LV city has tract homes and desert and strip malls.

You called that one right! They should have a third option, like Darien: a real place, close to heaven. Seriously. Why is it that so many people in Las Vegas, have that permanently unemployed look? Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Lose the baseball cap, too. Your over 50 and it looks ridiculous.

Miami. Lets all work on our English together. The heat there is unbearable. Humidity Squared. Las Vegas people always say, "Oh, it is hot, but it is dry heat." No it is not. Not anymore anyway. It is not as humid as Miami, but it is very uncomfortable.

Miami is prettier. Vegas is nice at night. Both cities seem to be Mecca's for the lower end, less educated. People in both Miami and Las Vegas try so hard to be "cool." It is never going to happen. The land of "want to be's" and posers. I think I will go and take a shower now. Typing about these two cities, leaves me feeling grimy.

Baseball hats in sunny climates are actually quite practical. But I guess if you're soooo cool that you'd rather
burn than wear a hat... knock yourself out.

If you think that about Miami, your opinion is invalid in this conversation. Why is it such a big deal that English is a second language for so many in Miami? And does the huge concentration of Latin American businesses in Miami mean nothing? Just because they deal with the Latin American market in Miami, that makes them lower end and less educated? People in Miami do the same type of work that someone in LA, SF, Chicago, NYC, etc. do, they just do it in a bilingual environment with Latin America. Recording studios, banks, airlines, cruise ships, restaurants, trading companies and more all have offices or headquarters in Miami.

Meanwhile in Las Vegas, the local economy survives almost solely on The Strip's hotels, casinos, and nightclubs.
