Why is it stupid? Miami with it's beach & fitness culture is well known to be a city full of young attractive people from different races & cultures. Orlando is kind of mundane in that department but certainly not the 5th. most unattractive.

They both have elements of that. Miami, of course has more. But it's silly to think that one of those metro areas could end up on the "best of" list while the other is on the "worst of" list.

I really can not believe people are arguing about this survey. I mean, really? We are going to argue about which city is to blame? Now I know why our world is the way it is. I mean no disrespect here, I really do not, but I do not understand why there are not more post like mine and more post of which makes us the ugliest cities.

I don't agree with the survey and I also don't agree with your statement about a lack of identity for Orlando. It is a tourist destination...that is it's identity and most people living here support that economic engine.

Agreed. Saying Orlando has no identity makes about as much sense as saying Las Vegas has no identity.

Both Orlando and Las Vegas have an identity. Having lived in both cities I can say they both have their own unique identities

Im a huge fan of both cities, and hope one day I can own a home in Vegas and Orlando and travel back and forth every few months

It makes perfect sense. Miami is a fashion and celebrity destination, while Orlando is a family vacation destination. Which do you think is going to attract more beautiful people?

It makes perfect sense if you just look at a couple of stereotypical areas in each city (South Beach in Miami, and Disney/I-drive in Orlando) and assume it reflects the whole city

Has anybody factored in the fact the tourists that come here??? I've only been in Florida for a few months (from LA) but I have noticed that the tourists are pretty beat. Perhaps they have taken them into consideration when calculating Orlando's good looks.

lol btw, this thread is completely ridiculous in that people are arguing over what some silly survey says. Again, my two cents

Welcome to City-Data Roxy, this is what we do here . Also a big welcome to Orlando since I saw your post in the other thread. It's a great town and if we all get to the gym and salon instead of posting on this forum, then maybe we can do something about this survey!!!! Who's with me???
