I've actually been to a Waffle House in Maryland not to far from Baltimore on my way to Philadelphia. It was right off I-95. You would be surprised how many Waffle Houses there are north of the Mason Dixon and out west. I must have ate those soggy waffles 4 or 5 times on my two day road trip from Florida to Pennsylvania. There was literally a waffle house every 10 exits or so. Didn't come across a state on I-95 that didn't have a few (although I don't believe they go North of Pennsylvania).

I like the waffle house, but i have to drive 50+ miles to get to one. I've been to one in Frederick, MD, but that was because my car from a dealership out there. When i go to NC I make sure i go atleast once during my visit. I think the northernmost waffle house is in scranton,PA.

1. Though not a 24-hour city, DC clubs stays open until 2 on weekdays and 3:30 on weekends (when it matters).

2. I used to live in Miami and they have 24 hour drug stores, convenience stores, denny's, latin american restaurants, and no clubs close before 4 or 5, matter of fact they have a lot of after hours clubs/bars too. I would definitely say that Miami is a 24 hour city. Miami is not on NYC level but it is not "a mile behind"

I agree, ALOT of thing in Miami stay open 24hrs. I don't think people realize this. It's not JUST South Beach's bars and nightclubs.

And what major city in the US doesn't have those? Houston also has a plethora of 24 hour restaurants, convenience stores, and drug stores as well, not to mention a few supermarkets that are open 24/7.

I agree here, but the stuff you named here in Bold you can find anywhere. Another thing is there are clothing boutiques that stay open till 1 am also, The only thing that really puts Miami ahead Is its nightlife scene, its all day everyday.
