Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

America's Favorite Cities is an annual Travel+Leisure reader's poll. The 2009 results are in and Miami is ranked number one for hottest people and number 29 (out of 30) for intelligent ones.

As far as food and dining goes, we ranked eighth for Big Name Restaurants, sixth for Ethnic Food, tenth for Cafes & Coffee Bars, 29th for Farmers Markets, and 25th for Neighborhood Joints.

In the farmers market category the only place that did worse was Las Vegas. For ethnic food, we were bested by New York, New Orleans, Chicago, San Francisco, and San Antonio.

The poll seems to have been conducted via the magazine's website over the summer. No tabulation info is given. Nor is the number of responses.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
