If not necessarily English has to be the native language, all of major cities in Europe would qualify.

Not really. Ordinary residents of Rome cannot really make a conversation in English.

Metro Miami has more native English speakers than any other language and most schools have English as the language of instruction. Even in the city of Miami itself, I am sure you can get by speaking only English in day to day life even if more people speak Spanish than English as a native language. I can't see how if you dealt with the government there in English, they would refuse you service.

The functional language of anything that's "official" or even close to being "official" in Miami is most definitely English.
