Miami Is Most Attractive City In The U.S., Says 2012 Survey

Miami is America's most attractive city, according to a recent survey conducted by Travel + Leisure magazine.

"These party-loving Floridians have reclaimed the top slot this year, which they haven't held since 2009. They also ranked in the top 10 for their fashion sense and fit physiques," the magazine writes.

Other cities in this year's top 10 list include Honolulu, Austin, Nashville (Tenn.) and Savannah (Ga.). Sun-kissed San Diego clinched second place.

The list of cities with the "most and least attractive people" is part of Travel + Leisure's annual America’s Favorite Cities survey, in which readers rate 35 metropolitan areas for qualities such as "people-watching, walkable streets, and hot music scenes."

While Miami has long been touted by the magazine's readers as one of the most attractive cities in the United States, Florida's "party city" was at one time also criticized as being one of America's fattest.

In 2009, Men's Fitness magazine slapped Miami with the title of "fattest city" in the U.S. However, in 2011, CNN reported that Miami has since "shaped up." In fact, Miami now ranks 12th on the magazine's fattest cities list.

This is not the first time this year that Miami has clinched the top place in surveys regarding American cities. According to a report by The Huffington Post in July, Miami is the city that has the most sex, based on results from a survey conducted by condom makers Trojan.
