“America’s Favorite Cities Survey” Disses Anchorage

Miami has long been famed for its palm-fringed beaches and glamorous nightlife but now it can boast another attraction – its people. The Florida city has been voted home to the most beautiful people in America by a new survey.

In second place for attractive locals was San Diego although locals’ conversational skills were not rated highly.
