Miami is 2nd-Rudest City in America: Magazine

Our city has "terrible drivers," Travel + Leisure's readers said

Believe it or not, Miami is the second-rudest city in the country – according to Travel + Leisure.

In new rankings released as part of its “America’s Favorite Cities” survey, the magazine’s readers deemed the Magic City to be quite rude – even more so than the ugly politics of Washington, D.C. (#3), L.A. (#4), and the smart-mouthing and championship-gloating of Boston (#5).

The magazine’s listing for Miami said that people here are “gorgeous, a little wild, and terrible drivers.”

“While bad weather may explain crabbiness in some cities, Miami can’t use that excuse,” Travel + Leisure said. “Voters are willing to shrug it off, though, as long as they are whooping it up in one of the city’s many loud settings, such as its bar scene or its raucous New Year’s Eve.”

The “capital of crabbiness”? New York.
