Several Cities in Florida, the Western U.S. and the Midwest Are Tops in Cleanliness.

Want to live where the air is sweet, the water is pure and the streets are clean? Try the country. But what if you don't like the sticks? Then try Florida.

San Francisco, really? It is the most physically disgusting city I have yet to step foot in. Do they not sell soap or a hose west of Oakland?

Portland is clean if you don't mind hurdling all the street kids.

And San Francisco? Clean? Well, there are an enormous amount of dudes who look like Mr. Clean....but I'm not thinking they're doing a whole lot cleaning in that city. Too bad....because it could use a good scrubbin'.

I am surprised that Miami is #1. The air in SoFla is beautiful with no haze, but Miami does not strike me as a clean city.

I believe they are refering to the air & water quality.Regardless of what you think of the downtown area Miami does have very good air and water quality compared to many major cities.

This is true. While Miami is a considerably dirty city(I have lived there, so i speak from experience) the air and water are very clean! And hurrah Seattle for getting #2! Not only is the city itself very clean, but the air and water are also very clean!

I agree that San Francisco should not be on this list. It is one of the dirtiest cities that I have ever seen.
