Tampa's rivalry is with Orlando, not Miami.

The closest to a rival I can think of for Miami is Atlanta. At least in hip hop music, the artists from those 2 cities keep insulting the other in their songs.

Most non-Dade County Floridians consider Miami to be a foreign country.

Perceptions aside most Floridians avoid Miami like the plague. Perhaps go there occasionaly for a concert, sporting event or experience South Beach.

Why would Tampa be intimidated by Miami? They are two quite different cities. Personally, if I had to choose, I would choose Tampa, because it's far less chaotic and less pretentious.

Tampa who?

No seriously here in Miami only have issues with Broward county and sometimes Orlando because many people have moved to those places.

Although there are some beautiful areas in Miami Dade and some cool entertainment venues ... as I travel around the state I would say I would agree with the above statement .

I am not even sure why the OP would ask that question .... Tampa has its own identity , look and feel and in reality it is much more laid back , much less pretentious and as similar to Miami as Houston or Atlanta IMO ... the weather and the palm trees are the only similarites that I can see as even the beaches of the Gulf Coast are different than the Atlantic and people are indeed friendlier also Tampa is much less Hispanic than Miami .

Between Miami and Tampa, there might be a rivalry as to where the best cigars are made. No other rivalry exists that I am aware. Both cities are in different leagues. Miami has an impressive skyline, warmer/tropical weather and plants, toursits, money, costs, and Latinos.

There are a few posters who come up with the most stupid 'x vs y' threads possible.

Just the idea of a whole city, any city, being intimidated by another is so laughable.

Who prefers odd numbers over even? Green or blue?? Leather or lace??? Uhhhh....wait a minute...
