Really, Florida is ONLY about sun and beaches.
Could you not manipulate my post and put words in my mouth? I didn't say Ft. Lauderdale is the nightlife capital of anywhere nor did I ever actually compare it to Chicago (only in distance), I mentioned Miami Beach being the nightlife capital, and guess what, it is. Guess what, I'm from all the way up thurr in the big city too, just got back a couple weeks ago for a three week trip and yet I don't have such an elitist attitude. Of course NYC has more nightlife because of it's sheer size but it is quite obvious that you haven't been to Miami Beach or South Beach. People actually move there from Europe just so they can live the vain South Beach party lifestyle. Even that is not comparable to New York but when someone thinks of NYC, they think of get whatever you want, when you want, whereas when someone thinks of South Beach they think of nightlife (except for you apparently). Like it or not, Miami (Beach) has it's own scene and has a niche internationally.

I dunno... the New York Club scene is even more pretensious and expensive than Miami/South Beach.

I would definitely associate Miami with nightlife more than New York. Though apparently Miami, London, and New York seem to think they're the nightlife capitals!

There are at least 3 places ahead of it. So, then you are a non native Floridian. You are willing to credit Florida with your education also? I guess once you move here you instantly have to sever everything that ever happened before in your life?

No, I am proud of where I came from and lived for over century. Too bad, if some don't like that. I cannot pretend to be something I am not --- a Floridian.

You cannot change where you were born. Why would you want to?

I did go to high school here. I made some major modifications to my post by the way. Also, there is no way to quantify which city has the "most" nightlife but objectively, come on, whenever there is GOOD news about Florida it has to do with the nightlife on SoBe! Most doesn't mean best.

Speaking of which, NYC ranked behind Miami in that study that alphaman linked us to (for what it's worth), one of your three cities that are "ahead".

If you don't mind me asking, what brought you to Florida? You seem reluctant to assimilate to your current state of residence which leads me to believe you were "dragged" here so to speak. I'm not saying you should have to eat grits and drink sweet tea but I think the "I never left my home at heart" attitude plays a role in the lack of "community feel" all over Florida. How you would like it if a bunch of southerners started moving to Long Island looking for great schools and low crime and started complaining about how rude the people are and now you have to sweeten your own tea? I appreciate a good corned beef on rye and real pizza (which I can't find too easily here) but I'm in a different place now, it is what it is but why not move if you don't like what it is?

It depends on what you consider nightlife. The OP said things to do which could mean museums, plays, concerts sports etc. And OP yes they exist in Fl.

OP you cannot compare a small town to anything up north and as compelled said, you'd be driving to Miami and FLL for a similar option.

Never say you want to move to Florida until you check out YOUR SPECIFIC interests. For example if you played ice hockey you might have to drive pretty far to find a team. If you say what it is you enjoy then you can get a more specific answer.

Also Miami entertainment requires money and frequently spanish but you should already know this before attempting to move here and go there.

LMAO, of course Miami was ahead of NY and rightly so. The site was called Ask Men. Ha Ha I'm sincerely laughing WITH you not AT you. .

Whatever guy doesnt vote for Miami as number one given the women there, is WAY out of touch.

And I agree about South Beach. Just questionable who can afford it in time or money. My kid is extremely happy with WPB downtown. It's individual.

P.S. Guiliani killed alot of the "nightlife" in NYC. In terms of clubs especially and open behaviors if that's the euphemism. (also it depends on the criteria, if it was professional plays NY would win, if it was bars etc, Miami for sure)

I totally agree and I'm a NY lover, going weekly for years. No comparison in terms of the "feeling" of "NIGHTLIFE" even just the beach vibe and tropical exotic atmosphere changes everything.

Miami definitely beats out NYC for the exotic and exciting and I don't even go to clubs much LOL.
