ok, so since moving from those places, how do you like MIA?

Love it here. It is relaxing, it is fun, it is enjoyable. It feels like living life again after living in the bible belt.

Miami is a great place for a fresh start as a young professional, provided you don't go around looking for trouble. Don't walk around everywhere with gold chains and Rolex's, don't leave your iphone or laptop in the car even if you're just going in the store to get one thing, don't hang out in Liberty City, stuff like that. However, with generally low salaries and high cost of living (Brickell is one of the most expensive rental markets in the US right now) and many options for spending lots of money "out on the town," it can be tough to get ahead financially to be able to eventually buy your own place, establish a retirement fund and a family, so keep your options open down the road, in case it doesn't work out long term.

You need to live in Brickell. I think you will enjoy it and will be among similar people.
