Las Vegas, Raleigh, and the Washington DC area look to have had a big increase in Asian population in the 2000s while having a fair number too. I think Las Vegas is still kind of down economically though.

Colorado Springs, Tucson, Ventura, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Miami, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, Denver, Orlando, and Portland look pretty low in the White-Asian "dissimilarity index."

There are two different catergories...

1. Those cities with established Asian populations.
2. Those cities with very fast-growing Asian populations.

They are often very different cities. Most of the cities mentioned so far are those that fit #1.

I'd add Houston to your list. Over 400,000 and growing very fast. Highest Asian population in the South by far unless you want to count DC. 3rd largest Vietnamese population and a very large Asian-Indian population as well.

If I were to guess, I would say San Francisco, however it depends what exactly you are looking for. I know San Francisco has a large Asian population and assume they offer a lot of activities and community feel. They have a great China town as well. Have you found any?

Houston has a large Asian-American community from what I know. They have a huge 99 Ranch Market the size of a Walmart which is just awesome.
Most of the Asian population is concentrated around the Southwest and Downtown parts of the city.
Can't speak for Florida however.
