Miami is obviously the least Southern of these, culturally speaking. Greenville and Huntsville would probably be the most Southern.

I guess they are about equal, but I said Houston because it is a lot more diverse and international than Miami, which is mostly Hispanic and white. I also found Houston to be a lot more tolerant and less conservative than Miami.
