That being said, a lot of snow birds flee the cold for the dream of living on the beach. There Southern California can't compete with any spot in Florida. It's just the way it's. Of course Florida doesn't have mountains and outside Miami has no large cities like Los Angeles.
we actually have Palm Springs, a product of snowbirds...

And Miami cant compare to LA, sorry, Miami is more like San Diego, just smaller. City-limit wise Miami is like Long Beach, also smaller.

Miami deserves a pat on the head....

399,000 population of Miami

compared to 1.3 million of San Diego, and 462 K of Long Beach... Sorry what was that?

I can't believe you're that naive to compare city limits since you've been on city data for so long. So I will just pat you on the head. And you clearly just demonstrated you never been to Miami. Does it cost too much to come here?

Don't worry, do you want to compare land Area? Miami is smaller either way... smaller

do you want to compare metro areas??? Miami is blown away... twice.

you name the method of measure and watch Miami be smaller time and time again.

ive been plenty of times... your point is?

my point is that its absolutely ridiculous to compare Miami to LA in terms of "Big City"...

I get the impression you wish to compare metro areas.

LA- 18.1 million

Miami- 5.5 million

I don't want to do anything with you because honestly you're not very intelligent.

PS

The 18.1 million figure is for Urban Area not metro. Not very important but you're trying too hard so it's funny for me
