I have to say, I didn't find Nashville sexy when I went. Unless sexiness equates to somewhat trashy, wasted women running around with penises on their heads for bachelorette parties.

I can see why someone would think Nashville is sexy, in a weird trash way.

I LOVE Chicago and it's my home and hometown. There are so many things Chicago does well and is beautiful at. Sexiness is not one of them. Yes, it's certainly sexy when compared to it's Midwest neighbors, but when compared to Miami, LA, or NYC, it's not really a sexy a city. Rather it feels like the good wholesome boy next door, that is cute, innocent and nice. Milwaukee is like his also cute brother but less so, and a little more bland.

Miami is like the wickedly hot guy that walks into a cafe, and everyone turns their heads and he knows he's hot.

Cold and northern cities in the US, along with boring ones in the midwest and mountain west are the polar opposite.
Not at all. I don't know of anyone who has experience in Miami who thinks it has any sort of "European" vibe. It does not. At all. It is very much a large Latin American city in the USA. It's literally over 70% Latin.

Less suppressed countries? Have you heard of Cuba, DR and Haiti? The VAST majority (like, 75% or more) of Miami residents are either descendants or immigrants from those countries.

As someone from Southern California, I find Las Vegas sexy. Maybe it is where to go party, what happens in Vegas gets recorded on a cell phone and put on instagram you know that motto. People are just less inhibited and gamble themselves into bankruptcy,

Miami has no appeal, at all, for me. I've lived in Chicago and Milwaukee, and they are both cities that have a LOT going on. Nothing bland about either of them. You can't compare them to Miami, though, that's true, and for that, I am thankful.

While predominantly Latin, there’s no shortage of Russians (Sunny Isles and Aventura especially), Canadians (full time or part time residents), and I’ve certainly run into my fair share of Turks (coming to Miami in greater numbers in recent years), Italians (be they from Italy, Venezuela and elsewhere), Germans, and French. A number of successful Euro retailers and restauranteurs have chosen Miami for their first US venture (Salt Bae’s Nusr-et; London’s Novikov; London and Dubai’s La Petite Maison; Italy’s Santa Margherita Winery's La Centrale) not to mention Euro investment (Richard Branson investing in Brightline rail; David Beckham upcoming soccer team and new stadium and Porsche and Aston Martin brand extensions via first ever luxury Miami condos bearing their names).

Miami is first and foremost a Latin city, but it is more than just Latinos, ex NY’er’s and Canadian snowbirds who live here and/or exert their influence and footprint.

As for your assertion 75% of Miami is from Cuba, DR and Haiti can you cite your source?...I’m showing only 41% from those 3 countries , but that is from a nearly 18 year old study...clearly many Brazilians, Colombians, Venezuelans, Peruvians, Argentines, Puerto Rican’s, Spaniards, more Northeast US transplants (Miami is often affectionately referred to as NYC’s sixth borough), Russians, Canadians, among others, call Miami home.

I am showing European ancestry accounting for nearly 12% of Miami’s population per the 2010 census (that’s not even including the hordes of Euro tourists who vacation here). Would not be shocked at all to see a higher population number when the 2020 census comes out.

Miami city proper might be overwhelmingly Latin, but that is only less than 1/15th of the entire metro area. The Miami metro is 39% White Hispanic, 31% White Non-Hispanic, 21% Black and 9% other races. Add in all the European tourists and snowbirds (including French Canadians) and the picture looks much, much different. So many tourists come from dozens of Latin American countries to visit the Miami metro that it's almost unheard of.

NYC is pretty much the most diverse city on the planet and I'm sure you understand the relationship that these two areas have. It's surely not as simple as "Miami is literally 70% Latin." I would even go as far as saying that the NYC and Miami metros have by far the most diverse Latin populations in the entire world and many of these groups of people from around the globe congregate in the beach areas, just adding to the diversity in the most urban and popular areas.

Venture outside of Broadway. People in Nashville tend to be pretty good looking and very friendly.

Not sure I would say Nash is "sexy" but it definitely hits that kind of yuppie thing that Austin does as well.

Miami, NY, and LA would be the obvious choices. Austin, Atlanta, Nashville, Las Vegas, Denver maybe(?), maybe even Dallas, might be a little below them.

Not disputing that there ARE European immigrants in Miami. I am just a bit perplexed that someone would say it has a "European" vibe. A European vibe to me is a city that has large concentrations of specific groups in different parts of town, such as you can see in places like Montreal, Brooklyn, Boston, etc.
David Beckham owning a soccer team does not contribute to a European vibe any more than Brazilians owning OCSC makes Orlando Brazilian. It's an American league. An Italian man opening up his first large Italian restaurant in a city does not give it an Italian vibe. Local Italians are unlikely to ever step foot in these places, as those are not what they are used to in their home countries. Places with actual European vibes typically have wide arrays of stores and amenities that target the actual European immigrants -- not the American locals or tourists who are looking to splurge on a $60 plate of "authentic" Fettuccine.

As for the 75%, it's actually 70% Latino, with some close to 60% being Cuban. Over 5% of the population is Haitian or of Haitian descent.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/...mi-home-n37241

One of the things I DO like a lot about it is the fact that it DOES feel like a Latin Caribbean city, pretty much all around. I've seen absolutely nothing there that gives off a European vibe. But hey, maybe it's just me. If others see such a thing there, good for them.
