Miami is the only real answer. The rest are all a wash.

If you go west towards the everglades you will find southern whites biker boys flying rebel flags whith pride, especially in Broward county. Yes Miami is southern both geographically and culturally.
And for every 1 of those southern confederate flag weaving bozos is a thousand transplants from the North or Cuba.

Miami may be in the South but it isn't Southern culture in the least.

Just responding to another Atlantan trying to label Miami something it isn't. That guy isn't one of the usuals.

Once you cross that bridge to the real Miami it has plenty of southern culture in Miami Gardens, Opelika, Carol City, and Liberty City. There is more trailer park culture in South Florida than any place I've ever been, and the rebel flag is very prevalent contrary to popular belief.

Miami and Dallas are guaranteed first and second place. It's a complete wash between Houston and Atlanta.

Absolute nonsense... ESPECIALLY coming from someone in Atlanta.

Lived in South Fl full-time for several years and still own a condo there. What does living in Atlanta have to do with it? Have you been to or lived in said areas, I highly doubt it. Why are you people so defensive? I'm not bashing Miami in anyway, but squashing this notion that it doesn't have southern elements.

It's stuff like that from posters who are either so hyper-sensitive or who are so smug and think they know more about certain places than you do even when they don't have anywhere near the experience there that you do who are making me sick of this forum. That and people beating dead horses every day like, "Are Miami and DC Southern or not?"
