Have you ever wondered where Miami ranks among the world’s best cities? Well, Resonance Consultancy just released its yearly ranking of the World’s Best Cities for 2024 and Miami made it to the #54 spot, which isn’t too shabby when you’re looking at over 270 cities all over the world!
Surely our crystalline, blue waters and wonderful beaches stand out, but it’s our acceptance to newcomers and multiculturalism that really take the cake, according to Resonance:
“The city’s natural attributes have always captured the world’s imagination and crystalized its hedonistic brand,” wrote Resonance. “But it’s Miami’s openness to immigrants (and, more recently, the LGBTQ+ community, and, even more recently than that, Silicon Valley migrants) that has people buzzing.”
We’re also home to some of the highest percentage of foreign-born residents in America and rank highly for start-ups in town, even with recent tech and crypto meltdowns. Highlighted rankings for Miami include coming in at 23rd for Outdoors and 7th for Instagram Hashtags.
To determine the ranking, Resonance chooses cities with populations of over one million and base their ranking on 24 subcategories grouped into 3 main pillars: Livability, Lovability, and Prosperity. It’s flattering to see that Miami is viewed as one of the world’s best cities — although we already knew that it is, of course. 😉
Of the US cities named, NYC ranked #3, San Francisco at #7, Los Angeles #15, Chicago #16 and Washington #17. Only one Florida city ranked higher than Miami at #52 — Orlando.
According to the rest of the report, the best 10 cities in the world include:
- New York
- San Francisco
