So either read or not say anything.


geez people its a question, and opinions not facts.
the poll didnt clarify anything specific, just based on an overall judgment. If the poll asked for who has better beaches, then okay, subjection can come in. Or who has better nightlife, or who has better weather. But overall? Can you seriously say Miami? Okay, you win

Have you ever been to Orange County? Its amazing! Way better than Ft. Lauderdale just as LA is better then Miami, not based on my preference, but based on the fact that the weather in LA metro I'd better, the job market, nightlife, food, shopping experience, and overall vibe, yes, even public transportation.
LOL..really? You mention metro areas in your posts. I didn't realize the rules were one sided or that your opinions constitute facts. I'm not fighting with you, I like Miami better. Plenty of people do. Many people like LA better. It's not a contest. They are two very different areas with different vibes. So, breathe deep and find a way to solve whatever dilemma that's making you freak out over Miami vs. LA.

I'm not saying Miami is better (or that I even like Miami) but you're not making any sense.
Its not that I'm not making sense, its just that you don't understand! LA is 4 million strong, Miami is 500,000 strong. Okay, and for the metro freaks, LA is 12 million strong (18 million in the greater LA region) and Miami is like what, 5.5 million? 6 million? But yet Miami is better? How's that
possible? Better looking people? Thats stupid judgment. Better job market? Ha. Less foreclosures? Don't bet ur life on it... Oooh I know, Miami has less ghetto areas.... yeah, thats cuz MIAMI is smaller then LA!

I mentioned metro cuz people confuse Miami Beach with the city of Miami but I guess since you all wanna talk about metro, then okay. Yes, some people like Miami better and for good reason, it might be where there dominant friendship network or family network is based. Hell, if most of my friends and family liked in Barrow, Alaska, I'd be partial to Barrow, Alaska. I wouldnt need to lie though and say Barrow is better then say, Manhattan, for example
