Miami came in at No. 52 in this year’s 2023 World’s Best Cities Report, a comprehensive annual study by Resonance Consultancy.
Looking beyond tourist appeal, this ranking takes many factors into account. Among them: infrastructure, nature, the arts, entertainment, culture, diversity and business prosperity. And Miami fared well.
Although Miami’s beaches and party culture will always beckon visitors, the report emphasized Miami as a destination for more permanent residents, specifically immigrants, LGBTQ+ people and workers from Silicon Valley. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has been particularly kind to big tech, courting San Franciscans with a viral billboard during the pandemic.
Now, Miami is the seventh-most photographed city on Instagram and ranks No. 22 for Google searches. It also boasts the world’s fifteenth-lowest unemployment rate.
According to the rest of the report, the best 10 cities in the world include:
1. London, England
2. Paris, France
3. New York City, USA
4. Tokyo, Japan
5. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
6. Barcelona, Spain
7. Rome, Italy
