I have never been to USA ,but I plan to emigrate. Miami seems to have the perfect climate...I wonder why has it not become the #1 city in population too..? Why people still emigrate from abroad & from within USA to NYC,Chicago ,LA,the 3 worst places to live in USA from all aspects..?

In terms of climate, many people would consider Honolulu > San Diego > Miami. Except for smog, LA comes close to beating Miami. Many people have trouble dealing with the summers here.

Number one climate is very subjective; there are many people that like four seasons.

People live generally where there is work, not where they want to. No matter how much I like Miami, I like a few more places better in the world. But since there is no work there, I cannot live there unless I become rich.

I am afraid that u said the big truth..If anyone,citizen or immigrant finds a job somewhere,he will..follow the job,not the ..sunshine...

First, if climate was the sole criteria for choosing a place to live, then you may have a point, but even then Miami is very far from having the best climate in the country.

Where did you read that NYC, Chicago and LA are the 3 worst places in the US?

I concluded that,based on prices,crime,traffic,climate,laws etc...By "best climate" I mean the warmest all year-round...I checked the data in Wikipedia ,Google & also here in CDF...

very left wing! good neighbors ... except when they're in their cars. Very Jewish.

Caution: houses and anything larger than a 1 br condo in the desirable parts of Miami are not that cheap, you can't just look at, say, the median, ...that is, assuming you don't want to live in a ghetto or somewhere that's a 45 minute drive to get anywhere. That and the fact with with the hurricane insurance you can't afford nearly as much house as you *think* you can afford.

A few years ago Miami did get down into the 30's at night and upper 40's with rain all day, so it is possible to get cold in Miami. During the 2 years I lived in Honolulu, I think it got down to like 60 once. If you think Honolulu surf is cold, try Miami Beach in February...brrr (although you feel tough when it's 68 degree surf and you're out swimming and everybody else is scared to touch the water!) San Diego I got you though, but that's the surf, not *technically* the climate

Miami does not have low crime
Miami is not a cheap place to live
Miami has a ton of traffic problems and bad public transit
The laws are pretty much the same around the country besides for state taxes and few other things.
Climate I can agree. As long as you don't mind rain every day from May to October, high humidity, 94F summer days, and the possible hurricanes. Some people enjoy the four seasons and stuff. Miami has a nice climate but it has its positives and negatives.

Anyway people don't move just for climate they move mainly for jobs. Chicago, LA, NY, DC, Dallas, Atlanta are all better for jobs. And Miami after LA and NYC has the most immigrants coming in I believe.

I concluded that Homestead has the most affordable prices,in that " light green "area of it,as in the CDF map...With $160-200K I can buy a ( pre-owned..) "mansion",by Euro standards there .....How much would I pay for hurricane insurance..? Your opinion on Homestead..?
