I feel like Miami gets negative feedback on these boards a lot of the time due to the crime and humidity, so I will do that.

Miami:

- Great Beaches
- Warm year round
- Close to the Everglades
- Beautiful skyline
- Blue ocean
- Latin/Cuban culture
- Great nightlife
- A lot of interesting architecture

They don't quite seem to understand that many cities don't care that New Yorkers think other cities pale in comparison, or everything west of Jersey is "hicksville". It's kinda funny sometimes.

*That being said, as far as bragging rights, they've got the biggest and the baddest subway system of all time, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Lincoln Tunnel, and the Greatest skyscraper *ever* built, the Chrysler Building!

*New York's biggest bragging right is that it was the *first* to do many things, as far as infrastructure, in North America
(bridges, tunnels, etc.).

*San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, hilly terrain that doesn't exist anywhere else, and a relatively cool (but increasingly snooty) vibe.

*Toronto has the CN Tower, and imho, the *coolest* vibes of any city in North America.

*Chicago has the awesome skyline (Sears Tower, John Hancock Building), Lake Michigan (beautiful), and it's own distinct food/foodie culture.

*Philly has that *INCREDIBLE* City Hall, the Liberty Bell, and also it's own distinct food/foodie culture. God bless the saintly man who invented the Cheesesteak (Sharp Provolone for me, no Wiz!)
The subject of the thread states American cities. Toronto is not an American city.

Every city in the American continents is technically an American city.
