Isn't San Francisco like mostly ummm gay people? not that being gay is bad just ask Whiteseatenvy



I would probably choose Miami. I've never been to either though so take my opinion for what it is


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

When are you going

SBK/AMA superbike is July 9-11 Laguna Seca
2hrs south of San Fran

Visiting SanFran is the better place.


Miami will be cheaper to live

San Fran. The people that I've met there seemed more honest and friendly. This is assuming you don't mind people with alternative lifestyles, or gays.

I hear Miami has quite a few too.

San Fran for sure! The whole gay thing is a non issue. We have just as big a gay population in Chicago. Ever felt the humidity in Miami, yeah it sucks. Straight roads in FL suck too. You'll be close to a lot of race tracks in S.F. as well. Except for the cost of living S.F. beats out Maimi by a landslide in my book. By the way Miami's ghetto shitholes are among the worst in the country, crime is real high.

My vote goes to San Francisco, CA

You will need at least a 33% increase in you income to maintain your standard of living if you move to San Francisco, CA.

If you were moving to Miami, FL you can take a decrease of 13% and maintain your standard of living.

too many pretty people in miami. I hate them.

go to SF, and just keep an open mind. the gay thing is just an awful stereotype...and besides, it never hurt anyone to be accepting.

I lived three years in Miami. It's a great place to visit but a sh!tty place to live. My wife and I plan on moving to Northern Cali or Nevada some years down the road.
