At any point in time there's bound to be several thousand European tourists and 'snowbirds' in the Miami area. It's pretty much the number one destination for Euro tourists in North America. You'll certainly notice that especially in places that tourists frequent like shopping and entertainment destinations.

You can't compare Milwaukee to the cities you did. And, yes, there are European visitors, I lived there, and had dinner with some. AND, when Milwaukee has their Harley festivals, trust me, people from all over the world converge.

Yes. Tourists. They also flock into Orlando. And all over Florida. The only place with any sort of European vibe in Florida is St-Augustine, and that is strictly on an architectural and historical standpoint. In my opinion (shouldn't have to state this, but just to make sure my opinion is not misconstrued.)

unless they're Russian--flocking to Miami for anchor babies (at least we can consider those from Moscow as European):

It comes down to the definition of 'vibe'. There's few places in the U.S. where you're as likely to run into a Brit, Russian or German as you are in Miami. Whether that gives it a 'vibe' or not, who knows, but it is a fairly distinctive feature of the area.

Is that comparable to the presence of Latin Americans in the area or even Haitians? Probably not. But the presence of many tourists seeking thrills tends to have a stimulating effect on the area's nightlife and entertainment options, so I'd say that it quite possibly contributes to a perception of Miami as sexy.

Okay, I'm going out on a limb, here. There's "sexy" and there's "sexy." And, sometimes, sexy can be sleazy. And, that's the impression some cities give.
