I think a lot depends on where you are located. Europeans would be more inclined to remember places like Boston and Philadelphia and Orlando which actually have had advertising campaigns there seeking tourists. On the orher hand Asians are probably more familier with places like Portland, Seattle and San Diego.

I'm from Belgium and this is my list:

New York (Big Apple, economy, a lot to see)
Washington DC (Politics)
Los Angeles (movies, entertainment, sun)
Miami (tourism, sun)
Chicago (windy city)
New Orleans (Jazz, laidback)
Detroit (cars)
San Francisco (Golden Gate)
Las Vegas (casino)
Dallas (the TV series, oil)

A top 10 of US states would be difficult. Many people don't know New York as a state, for example.

Florida yes, Miami no. In fact, in my 40+ years of living in the Northeast US. I have not met a single person who has chosen Miami as a tourist destination. And we Northeasterners definitely utilize Florida for vacations. It's just funny to me how different foreigners view Miami compared to how Americans do.

I guess you are somewhat right. Miami as a sole destination is not exactly correct but it is still a higly recognizable city in Europe.
