Is Tampa and Miami not unlike other parts of Florida?

Some observation I have noticed.

1.More crime in Tampa and Miami than any other city in Florida.

2 Less cookie cutter subdivisions and more grid system and older city feel.

Tampa and Miami overrated!! That face it , other cities in Florida look too suburb like.

Less African American blacks other than some parts of Miami.No idea why African American blacks hate moving there.

3.People dress up more. Well despite the stereotypical image Florida very casual.

Tampa tight clothing ,fitted shirt ,polo shirt ,striped shirt ,nice shirt ,nice jeans. More preppy and dress up casual.

Miami ghetto look or dress up no between !!

first of all............ what?

secondly, Miami and Tampa are 2 vastly different cities. One cannot say if one city dresses up more or not, it completely depends on the individual and the context of their outing....

I was just saying that Miami is sorta of like Dallas it is fashion oriented city being expensive name brand clothes and flashy clothes.More people dress up and fashion oriented than on other hand has other group dress down ghetto.No in between.

Well Fort Worth is like other cities in Forida like Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.

Just saying Miami is sorta of like Dallas malls ,restaurants ,bars ,night clubs ,fast food,diners and down town that people get all dressed up.Not like Fort Lauderdale ,Palm Beach or Fort Worth that more casual.

Most sharp dressers in these areas are average income earners, trying to look the part for whatever reason. People trying to act and dress rich and successful, I've never seen it so much as in FL. I don't understand it, I wear flip flops shorts and a tee shirt everywhere.

They may dress the part, but my point is most are avg income earners trying to look the part.

Haha, Miami is nothing like Dallas.

Most folks in the Dallas area are educated, career-oriented professionals. There's no Plano/Allen/McKinney/Frisco/The Colony equivalent in Miami or even South Florida, for that matter.
