Hahaha, obviously it depends on your preference.

Miami has a better climate - Sure, it's warmer there in the winter but it's way more hot and humid in the summer. Not to mention, Miami is on the leading edge of the peninsula to get slammed by a hurricane. I'll take Tampa Weather over South Florida Weather anytime.

Miami has better people - Yes, Miami has many, many more people that are only able to speak Spanish. Miami folks drive like you are in a third world country and when working with local companies you always have to check and make sure you're not getting ripped off.

Miami is better in crime - Sure, if you consider that the more crime the better. If this is the case.... Miami wins.

Miami has better beaches - We have sugar sand beaches that do not have rip tides. However, Miami's water is much more beautiful. I may have to give you this one.

That's what I most like about the Daytona area! No pretentions. Then again I didn't consider it when I was deciding where to spend my winters.
